“El Ansia” collection details by Rosa Copado

It wasn´t in my plans to interview María Escoté during Cibeles Fashion Week in Madrid, but what I experienced during her show was just breathtaking. I had to have an interview with her and discover the world behind her collections.

The people were applauding, literally, it was like a bullfight arena, you could hear Ole! Ole! while the models were in the catwalk, it was a sublime experience.

When she explained to me what was “El Ansia” about, I discovered she could describe precisely how I feel right know.

Heartbroken, but still hoping that things will just get better and better; “There s always a light after the dark tunnel”, she told me during our conversation, since this collection´s meaning was the transition from Honolulu Dark (her past collection) through a dark path that ends in a Renaissance that leads to “El Ansia”; a collection with a lighter aesthetic, more illuminated, transparent, brighter.

Mother of pearl laser stamp died hats with 50 s patterns, silk and organzas, printed transparencies over sequins, georgettes, heart shaped dresses, denim patchwork and knitting, hair, bright and shinny long hair. Maria´s world if full of textures and fantasies.

The conversation we had was a little bit blurry, it was just two days after she presented her collection in Cibeles Fashion week, I really had no formulated questions, I just wanted to get to know her and her fascinating mind, temperamental but gentle; charismatic and witty.

Now I can say I finally talked to the real Queen of spanish fashion, María Escoté, the Queen of hearts.
