About Montenegro

Lead Designer-Couture Paris Artist/Fashion Designer.

Nicolás Montenegro was born with the same name in 2020, after more than ten years of experience in the fashion and haute couture sector. Under his own name, the Spanish designer has launched a firm and bridal night that promises to win over the most demanding audiences and clients.

Nicolás Montenegro has trained at the Marangoni Institute (Milan, Italy). One of the most important fashion schools in the world.

After finishing his studies, he has had the opportunity to work and collaborate with great names in fashion such as Max Mara, Francesco Scognamiglio Couture, Yolancris...

But his great opportunity as a designer came from the hand of the great Italian firm Dolce & Gabbana. There he has signed dresses under the name of the firm for artists such as Beyoncé, Kylie Minogue, Melania Trump or Mónica Belluci.

Nineteen eighty-nine began on a Sunday in the calendar and meant a prelude to the change of decade. For designer Nicolás Montenegro, it was the year of his birth. The year in which he would begin his adventure.

The Sevillian creator was born on April 16, 1989, in the middle of the Seville fair, always decorated with lanterns, flyers and fun. Specifically, that scene characterized by change defines this spring/summer 2023 collection by Nicolás Montenegro.

The designer has traveled back to his childhood to choose the volumes and silhouettes that were present in his first years of life. These are transported to 2023 through risky fabrics and iconic ornamentation for his ensign.

Through sequins, the most exquisite and colorful rhinestones or printed chiffon, Montenegro builds the keys to its collection and what marked the fashion of those wonderful years.

“This is a collection that transports us to the most glamorous nights of summer. Those that, whether in the city or near the sea, serve as a prelude to fun, sensuality and elegance,” says Montenegro.

Elaborate silhouettes, rich and striking materials and innumerable references to that aesthetic of the late 80s and early 90s with gold and silver as the great standard bearers.

As usual in the designer's collections, all the fabrics used in this collection have been created 'ad hoc' for the firm Nicolás Montenegro. A little boy who makes it clear that, as happens with his childhood memories and his vision for fashion, his signature is unique.
