The talent of the IED Madrid at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid

Former students, who are now renowned designer, and young talents who are still training at the IED Madrid, will display their work on this key Madrid catwalk between the 14th and the 19th of September. This year, for the first time, the event will go beyond IFEMA

From IFEMA to the Parque de Atracciones, the Palacio de Cibeles and the Mercado de Antón Martín. This year, the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid adds new locations beyond IFEMA, creating new spaces for the shows and turning Madrid into a huge catwalk between the 14th and the 19th of September.

An extra attraction for fashion lovers and for the 47 designers taking part, which include María Clé, Pepa Salazar, Moisés Nieto, UNDERTHEC, etc. Among the list of designers who have trained at the IED Madrid and who will showcase their proposals for Spring/Summer 2018 there are also some fashion students with great passion for this sector. Take note!
