RIP Jesus del Pozo


Jesus del Pozo, one of Spain´s  most influential fashion designers, has passed away due to lung failure at age 65.  He opened his first store in 1974, and unveiled his very first designer collection in 1976 in Paris.

Pozo is what I like to call a ´Madrid fashion founder´because he started and sustained his designs before the fall of Franco and all the way through the country´s turbulent change to democracy until now.  I imagine that must of been a difficult stage to be owning and running a business, designing, etc, so I think he must have worked very, very hard.   So RIP Jesus, you will be missed.
