In Agatha Ruiz de la Prada's designs there is a constant that is always kept intact. Since her first fashion show in 1980, contemporary art has been a basic reference, not only in the conceptualization of ideas, fundamental in all of her collections, but in the way in which she introduced it to the world of clothing through her choice of silhouettes, materials, colors and the use of the house's classic icons, always falling back on a tug of war between lack/abundance of meaning. This reverts us directly to the use of graphic design, which in an almost omnipotent way is applied to all the branches of her design the first being, naturally, that of the textile printing.

Prof. Lubomir Stoykov’s new book World Fashion. Part Three: Italy is already a cultural and aesthetical fact. During its official premiere at Vitosha Park Hotel, it was presented by H.E. Stefano Benazzo – ambassador of Republic of Italy to Bulgaria who is also author of the introductory words. Mr. Benazzo notices: The work of Prof. Lubomir Stoykov has the merit to tell the story of the evolution of the Italian fashion through the stories of our biggest designers from the post-war period until the present, showing that fashion is most of all a result of the labour of really unusually people rather than of more or less inspired persons, more or less anti conformists. I am grateful to Prof. Stoykov, because thanks to him, many Bulgarians who love so much our country, will be able to "understand" the Italian fashion, will be able to explain its language and symbols, rather than only fall in love from first sight.

The Italian designer doesn't want to be like other designers and bask
in glory after debuting her collections.
She said: "I hate the cliche of fashion designers since the beginning.

And the first thing I didn't want to do was that."
Miuccia - whose celebrity fans include Tilda Swinton, Victoria Beckham and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen - also revealed she likes her designs to be ironic.
