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.
Sebi Subirós, engraver since 1986 As an engraver, my work oscilates between discipline, painting and visual poetry. The main theme of my creations is the "found object", I get very close to images, often times antique engravings, and also to objects that I find interesting and which I transform in order to give them a different meaning from their original one. I am interested in warm and closesupports, such as paper and wood, and forthe final result I always try to achieve a feeling of permanence, I want the work to transmit the feeling that it has always been there, in a stage in between its first creator and my alteration.
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.
Monique van Steen is a Dutch painter, living and working in Barcelona, Spain. Her main focus in art is exploring the boundaries of female beauty. The change of geographic place of living is easily recognizable in her work, especially the mediterranean light has made a great change on Monique’s color-palette. These outstanding colors combined with the contemporary, almost comic-style vision on the depicted makes her work relative to the neo-pop-art scene.

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.
