About Roberto Verino

Manuel Roberto Mariño Fernández, better known as Roberto Verino, was born on 3 May 1945 in Verín, Orense. After acquiring his knowledge in Paris (France), he launched a successful women's ready-to-wear collection in 1982 and walked the Cibeles catwalk for the first time in 1984. Since then he has had a prominent place in Spanish fashion, combining his work as a designer with his winery Gargalo, created in 1996 with the Monterrei designation of origin. In addition, in 1999 he was one of the founders of the Asociación de Creadores de Moda de España. In 2007 he celebrated the 25th anniversary of the creation of his brand with a retrospective exhibition at the Museo del Traje, which could also be seen at the Gabarrón Foundation in New York.

Roberto Verino has created an international business group, with sales outlets in Spain, Portugal, Mexico and his online shop. In 1997 it received the AENOR quality certificate, being the first Spanish company to obtain it. He has received numerous awards such as the Medal of Merit in Fine Arts, the Aguja de Oro (Golden Needle) or the Telva T award. He was also chosen Gallego of the month by Grupo Correo Gallego in 1996 and in 2003 he received the Vieira de Plata award as universal Gallego of fashion.

At the beginning of 2016 he disassociated himself from MBFWM to lead the "See now, buy now" movement in Spain. In March 2016 he presented his Spring-Summer 2016 collection at the Platea restaurant in Madrid and in September he starred in the MFHSOW Now Catwalk, presenting the proposals for the current season and receiving the applause of consumers. In October, he walked the runway at the Balenciaga Museum in Guetaria as a special guest at the "Gipuzkoa de Moda" festival and received a tribute to his entire career at the Tabakalera in San Sebastian. In November he received the Conde los Andes Award from the Royal Academy of Gastronomy for "Best artistic creator related to gastronomy".

In February 2017, he once again walked the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid as the standard-bearer of the "See now, buy now" movement in Spain, presenting the Spring/Summer 2017 collection.

The influence of art is vital throughout Roberto Verino's career. In the Spring/Summer 2018 collection, he is inspired by the pictorial work of César Manrique, collaborating with his foundation on the centenary of his birth.

In 2020, the year of the pandemic, the firm presents its new collection in collaboration with the fashion school La Tecnocreativa, in a dialogue between the traditional and 3D innovation. This new era demands a change of mentality that is reflected in more open presentations and travelling catwalks.

In 2022, Roberto Verino joins the Real Academia Galega de Belas Artes as an elected member. The exhibition "40 years of #EstiloVerino" brings together the essence of the brand and begins, from Verín, a tour of different Spanish cities.

Collection lines


We are invaded by the obsession for novelty, the insatiable race to create things that constantly stimulate our senses without valuing the background, putting the temporarily beautiful over the beautiful, the eye-catching over the sensible, the exciting over the convenient? without realising that true creativity lies in the purpose of continuing to excite and seduce from the simple things, from that inimitable style born of authenticity and the designer's own universe, which seeks with each collection to offer a recognisable, honest and relevant proposal for the society of each moment.

CIRCULAR CREATIVITY, Verino's new collection for 2024, aims to highlight the beauty of the constant, the beauty of everything unchanging that happens every season, as happens with the cycles of nature and its daily gestures that we await with great enthusiasm in every season. Familiar gestures that are never the same, that never cease to surprise us because something has subtly changed. Perhaps because of how the colours have been organised, perhaps because of how the shapes or materials have been arranged... perhaps because of our gaze, which has changed thanks to the experiences we have had, thanks to knowing how to see the things we have always seen with the eyes of today.
