The fashion show can be followed live via streaming on the IED Barcelona Instagram channel

With the collaboration of Studio1o, a company dedicated to seeking and promoting brands and independent creatives who strive to make a positive change in the world, this year’s edition of Fashioners of the World will take place on 12 June at 7.30 pm at the emblematic La Paloma dance hall. 

The choice of venue was not taken by chance. Each year, the fashion show, in which 25 students of the Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design and BA (Hons) in Fashion Design from IED Barcelona present their final collections, chooses an iconic location in the city to show the world how IED Barcelona students interpret fashion. After having opted for the Art Nouveau Site of Sant Pau, Casa Vicens and the Fundació Miró in previous editions, this little gem of the Raval neighbourhood that has transformed and reinvented itself time and again without ever losing its uniqueness and values — such as the freedom of creation, transgression and openness — now picks up the baton.

As in every edition, at the end of the show, a renowned international jury will present the awards: Franca Sozzani for Best Fashion Collection, Isabel Coixet for Best Fashion Film, Manuel Outumuro for Best Shooting, and Jordi Labanda for Best Fashion Illustration.

An exclusive fragrance

One of the characteristics of Fashioners of the World is its ability to surprise us year after year. And this time, it will do so sensorially. Jérôme Di Marino, Perfumer from Mane, one of the world’s leading groups in the perfume industry, has created a special fragrance that will be distributed among all the attendees of the event. With the name “Bad Reputation”, the perfume is inspired by the bohemian atmosphere of La Paloma and its slogan: “Bad reputation since 1903”.

International projection

The fashion show can be followed live via streaming on the IED Barcelona Instagram channel. It will also be distributed through our collaborator Not Just a Label, the world’s leading platform for designers to showcase and nurture the pioneers of contemporary fashion.

Don’t miss it!
