It can all be a little overwhelming, the city may not be huge but the culture, activities, events, eateries etc. is vast. So we have taken it upon ourselves to amalgamate our local 12 years experience in the city via our blog. Whether you are planning on coming over for the festivals, want to find out vegan eats or general insider information, we will keep you in the loop.
We had the pleasure of attending the Celia Vela show “…y un vestido esmeralda”, at 080 Barcelona yesterday – one of the key fashion events in Barcelona, showcasing some of the best design talent in the city. This edition was superbly staged at Palau de Pedralbes and served as a magical backdrop for the catwalk that was centered around the fountain. The marquees were brimmed with Catalan press, the fashion pack and up and coming designers so the musing around the gardens was of course inspirational.
If you are like the girls in our office and have a soft spot for vintage finds you will love Brick Lane BCN - a pop up vintage market that takes place every month at different locations throughout the city under the premise that it brings the vibe of London to Barcelona.
Krystal-Joy is behind the concept, originally born in London this is a woman that isn’t shy when it comes to fashion. With extensive experience in the fashion industry that spans from working in the vintage department of Topshop, styling and producing fashion shows for the likes of Julien MacDonald and Temperly, Krystal-Joy noticed that Barcelona was missing cool, affordable vintage for both men and women like other European cities and created Brick Lane BCN.
