Certificate of Excellence award 2012 and 2013 Read the Reviews
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 recently recommended Formista, a design store and gallery perfect for gifts if you are still snapping up some goodies for Christmas. Another place that we have to mention is Market Design 2013, with the second edition being held in the Factory Mortiz. The collaboration of ADI - FAD (Association of Industrial Design Promotion of Arts and Design), diarioDESIGN (online magazine about design and architecture) and Moritz (beer factory, fully restored by French architect Jean Nouvel) has given the go ahead for the flea market for the design obsessed to take place in the lead up to Christmas.
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.
