The countdown for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid has begun in earnest, with the 69th event taking place at IFEMA-Feria de Madrid (Hall 14.1) and at other locations in the city from January 24 to 29. Less than a month after its celebration, the details of the latest of these IFEMA-organised event, y, have been finalised. Once again, the main aim is to promote and support talent and the Spanish fashion industry.
For six days, this new event, the biggest international reference point for Spanish design, will welcome the presentation of proposals from the most outstanding and trending creators, both the well-established and the new. January 24 will be dedicated to Samsung EGO’s young design, while from the 25th to the 29th, the programme for well-established creators will be held. The full programme of catwalks at the new MBFWMadrid edition, as well as its interesting off-site programme, will be announced in the coming weeks. In addition to the presentations of collections, the event programme will include other activities which will further enrich the concept of fashion from different perspectives.
