Born in Badalona, Barcelona, from a very early stage he started to be interested in fashion, since he grew up among his mother's cords and patterns. At 18, he started to study at the Fashion Institute of Barcelona and immediately started working in his family's company, where he will later create his own line of clothes. He presented his first collection at the Mexico Fashion Week and Bread & Butter in 2007, showing a fresh and dynamic style, with outfits thought for the modern, urban and sophisticated woman.
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.
I chose to represent, speak of those images that move me and I will continue. Continuing the discovery of light reveals things and desires... I like beaches, fresh fruit and people dancing in Casamance. It’s great when I can catch the light and beauty of the Caribbean, Africa and Menorca in a painting. Everything you see and experience does my imagination. That’s why I like traveling and painting wherever I go, because I believe everything I see or experience is interesting enough to talk, and my tongue, I know now, is the color.

Nuri Negre was born in Girona in 1971. Judging by the main characteristics of her creations, we can define her style as aristic ceramics or ceramic sculpture. Her idyll with this material started early in life, when she was 18. After studying art and psychology, she dedicated herself to the latter, while ceramics became a hobby she did in her workshop. Years later, Nuri decided to switch to ceramics as a full-time job. After winning a provincial prize and organizing collective exhibitions, she had her first exhibition in Girona, the same time she gave birth to her first child. This was the beginning of her successful artistic career. Lately, Nuri has been exploring the worlds art-therapy and art pedagogy, which she has been teaching at a school close to her workshop. A new prize, the first prize at the Biennal Angelina Alós d'Esplugues, reinforced her career. Her creations, through heat-resistant clay, slips and rust, combined with her unique style, talk about living organisms, metamorphosis and movement. Each piece talks about what nature didn't do, but could have done.

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.
