Born in Cádiz, Ana Sánchez graduated in Fashion Design in the School of Applied Arts, Cádiz, and Industrial Design Pattern in Barcelona. Over the course of the last years Ana, always on a quest toward the latest impulses, felt compelled to experiment with new projects in the fashion and art world. She created and became the director of the SOUTH 36-32N THE NEW FASHION LATITUDE, a fashion festival that also incorporates international modern art tendencies. The festival features a more experimental approach to the emerging avant-garde fashion and a more open-minded commercial vision of the actual market of young Spanish fashion designers. These factors majorly influence the style of Ana´s recent collections which are slightly more risky yet equitable whilst respecting the calls of the recent fashion market.
Rosalía Zahíno embodies as no one else does the concept of “haute couture” within the Flamenco culture, which has been consolidated in Spain and abroad for the past few years. The fashion designer born in Huelva (Spain) knows the secret of how to combine tradition with innovation, by rescuing for today’s women aesthetics from the past that show up as “more in the present” than they ever did. It is about an ode to the more sensual femininity, to the Spanish character and to the overwhelming personality of feeling Andalusia.
My relationship with plastic arts started when I was a young girl, influenced by my mother, who studied at the Fine Arts Institue in Toulouse, and my father, who is a professional photographer. For my artistic work I like to use big physical supports (canvas or wood) and diverse techniques such as coal, pastel, collage, ink, watercolors and oil. I prefer mixed techniques. Until now I had the opportunity to show my works in the cities of Bordeaux and Pau.
I was born in Maó in 1967. I've been living in Ciutadella de Menorca since then. Until the age of 27, I worked in accounting while studying at the prestigious "La Massana" School of Fine Arts from Barcelona. During my art studies I lived between Menorca and Barcelona. Once I finished, I decided to dedicate myself completely to art. Currently I focus on painting and on commercializing my creations mainly through the renowned Londoner "Francis Kyle" gallery. I also dedicate part of my time to teaching in my work shop called "Passiflora" in Ciutadella de Menorca.
Dani Torrent is a painter and illustrator from Barcelona. He studied Art History, with a focus on Renaissance, 19th century art and history of cinema. Daniel Torrent's art is based on anatomical deformations through which he creates oneiric atmospheres full of symbols. His work seems to explore the psyche and reveal the duality between fables and tales in a world where innocence and darkness merge. Androgen characters and insects who mix together in ambiguous relationships in bright nights are some of the themes of his paintings and illustrations. (for more info, download the PDF above)

Entering Isidoro Hernández's jewellery shop is similar to entering a world full of color, creativity and design; every single piece is carefully studied, designed and created with special materials. Like a Renaissance artist, he does not only look for the intrinsic values the gems, but he explores their beauty, color, size, type and uniqueness, and blends them together in beautiful designs. Isidoro creates all his pieces from scratch - he conceives the jewel, does the sketches, searches the materials and carves the gems.
Artisanal, modern jewellery, with a contemporary, timeless touch. Exclusive, limited and spectacular designs.

She uses the pure and classical beauty of diamonds, her favourite gem, to illuminate most of her designs.
There is a kind of glass which only responds to the manipulation made by sensitive hands of a tranquil beauty, to the authentic emotion that comes from hidden universes, to the knowledge of a technique that opens paths, to the desire to explode in bubbles and buttons of happiness that wake up as gems in the body. A kind of glass that adapts to the necessities of an open project.
