If you are a fashion fan, now you have the chance to visit the exposition “Barcelona prêt-à-porter, 1958-2008. Half century of industry and fashion. Antoni de Montpalau textile collection” in Palau Robert until the 30th of March 2014.

You will be able to take a look to the last 50 years of prêt-à-porter fashion in Barcelona in the second floor of Palau Robert, next to our Barcelona luxury hotel in Paseo de Gracia. This is the first exposition made in Catalunya with more than 300 pieces. The Commissioner will be the art critic, Josep Casamartina i Parassols.

The exposition shows the most important and relevant women fashion textile events around the World and in Cataluña through different designers, from the famous ones to the small shops and brands. Clothes will be changed twice, in October 2013 and in January 2014. All the clothes are ceded by Antoni de Montpalau textile collection.

Prêt-à-porter has consolidated the textile industry in Barcelona and has been an economic change for Cataluña. For this reason, this exposition is an institutional support to the fashion industry and to the Catalan economy.
