Spain is the home of most successful mass market brands like Zara but it's also really rich with young, fresh designer talents many of which design, up cycle and create brand new artisan pieces. There is a fine balance between fast and slow fashion with the second one being really noticeable in the city of Barcelona where you can see more and more locals but especially tourist looking for unique (mostly leather) handmade artisan fashion pieces and accessory.

Independent fashion and accessory designers in Barcelona have a lot of talent, they design and hand make high quality, affordable, ready to wear fashion collections but are still learning how to properly do the business and promotional side of owning a business. Many don't speak English well or any other languages but Spanish and do not have hire professionals to do their promotion and wholesale side of business for them.

The vast talent was already visible the first day of 080 Barcelona Fashion, the event which is heavily supported by the city, it takes place in beautiful historic buildings and it's usually really well organized. 

CELIA VELA is a female Spanish designer based in Barcelona where she also has her own store. Celia is showing her seasonal collections on 080 Barcelona Fashion event. She is inspired with Japanese aesthetics while her trademarks are femininity, sophistication and an attention to details. Celia is also known by her gorgeous wedding collections with beautifully made artisan lace details.

Celia's Fall/Winter 16/17 collection features her signature bejeweled back detailing on knitwear and loose, wool black and white squared coats bejeweled with brooches which remind of Chanel suits. I particularly like marsala bejeweled velvet jumpsuits.
