FASHION INDIE EXCLUSIVE: LIVE COVERAGE OF VALENCIA FASHION WEEK
Sep 06, 2009 - by Fashion Indie
Becks and Daniel Saynt headed to Valencia Fashion Week and all you get is an awesome week of exclusive coverage.
When the IVEX (Instituto Valenciano de la Exportacion) invited us to be their special guest for Valencia Fashion Week, we packed our bags and got ourselves ready for yet another amazing experience in Fashion Indie history.
While the shows don't start until Tuesday, we're going to be getting exclusive behind the scenes interviews and showroom tours of some of the greatest designers Valencia has to offer.
I'm currently laying in our beautiful room at the Hotel Dimar, watching El Simpsons trying to figure out if sleeping will better or totally make my jet lag worse.
Have already fallen in HEARTS with Zara. The one here kicks the NYCs versions culito (spanish for booty folks) and Becks picked up an awesome Grace Jones t-shirt. We grabbed a Jane Birken for Zara collection (yeah, I know AWESOME) t-shirt for Kirby and then made our way to Mango. Did you know Leigh Lezark is in their magazine? Will have to send you some scans, but totally weird. Also, in Spain they produce mini sized versions of all the major fashion magazines. The magazines are half the price of their standard glossy sisters and totally pocketbook friendly. Hint, hint American mags, get on that.
Anyways, Valencia is GORGEOUS. It's really close to the beach so the area has a Mediterranean/tropical feel that reminds me of what I imagine Monaco would look like. I love it.
More on our trip to come in the next few days. Stay tuned.
