Corsicana at MBFWMadrid
Corsicana is a Spanish and feminine fashion brand born in 2017 by Paula Currás, that merges different disciplines and interests; fashion, spaces, music, cinema, collecting, and enduring, with the same objective: tell stories about places.
Since her first collection presented in January of 2018, Corsicana focuses on a production model of female pieces ready-to-wear and special events on demand (pre order). The pieces are only produced when a client buys them, without using any more resources needed than for the piece requested. Made locally in Spain, between Madrid and Asturias; Her collections do not follow the seasons; therefore, each campaign is a one more chapter of the storytelling it shows. The Spanish brand was nominee to Mercedes- Benz Fashion Talent Award (2022, 2021), Allianz EGO Confidence in Fashion Prize (2021) y selected for Who’s on Next 2021.
The vision of the brand is to produce pieces that are solid and essential, with some special pieces whose quality and versatility, offer much more possibilities not just for a formal event, investigating in garments more sustainable inside the industry
The collection is inspired by the trip to Corsicana (Texas), whose name originates the project. It is very close to Paris (TX), a city that inspires the journey to the origins of Travis, star of the homonymous film by Wim Wenders: Paris, Texas; establishing a parallelism between the plot line and aesthetics, to create a universe of its own Corsicana, Madrid.
For this collection, unisex garments will be presented for the first time, with a strong ready-to-wear style and versatile, multi-position designs that allow for different looks with the same garment. These will be contrasted with highly artisan pieces, haute-couture-sewn by hand, with elaborate or unusual fabrics, or unique and non-reproducible.
It is a tribute to a specific place, but also a design excuse to be able to continue with aesthetic codes that represent the firm, already established in previous collections. As well as to be able to talk about the timelessness of the garments, the versatility, the collaborations, the made-to-order, the limited editions, the upcycling...etc. Themes that we feel are very relevant and that we try to communicate in our collections with the mission of creating our own language and calenda
