Juanjo Oliva in Madrid
This time, I went to visit Juanjo Oliva, one of the most talented spanish fashion designer . He was born in Madrid. After completing his diploma in Fashion Design at IADE, the Madrid Artistic Institution of Education, and following a fashion illustration course at the Parsons School of Design in New York, he undertook his first job for designer Isabel Berz in the early 90s, working for her catwalks at Cibeles. He worked as an illustrator, fashion designer and catwalk coordinator for the greatest names in Spain.
His collections are minimal, chic and elegant. On the last catwalk for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Madrid, her friend Rossy de Palma was specially on the catwalk to show his collection.
When I was in Madrid I took the time, with Glamour TV, to go to his show room in Orfila street. We discover his new shoe collection, we met Bibiana Fernandez trying a dress and we try to find a new look for my host, Alba Carrillo . A lot of fun before the end of the first season on TV.
