La Moda es Sueño means ¨Fashion is a Dream¨ in English. That´s a pretty fierce name and gives the expo a lot to live up to-which it did! This exhibit was truly a dream!
The special exhibit paid homeage to iconic Spanish fashion designers by showcasing some of most famous and elaborate outfits in the Museo Cerrablo. Sounds pretty routine, no?
It wasn´t. If you have ever been to the ¨Museo¨Cerrablo, it is an absolutely stunning, antique mansion/palace decorated with vintage items, luxurious fabrics, chandeliers, and spanish art. The museum in itself is truly a sight for sore eyes. The details are impecible. Here a couple of the pictures of the museum so you can get an idea of it´s beauty.
Then you add in fashion specifically chosen to ¨match¨the vibe of each specific room and it basically makes for a art and fashion lovers paradise. I was in heaven!
I caught the exhibit on the last hour of the last day (sigh…procrastination!) and it is now over, but at least I can share my photos and experience with you if you weren´t able to see it yourself. I hope the photos do it justice! Designers and details come after the photos.
