“Resist and sell” is the objective of these three firms that reinvent themselves and adapt to the new times and wishes of the public, as seen in the presentation of their collections through videos and also “performance”.
Andres Sarda has heated the infinite meters of concrete of Ifema with an uninhibited collection that has helped to enliven the atmosphere diminished by the scarce influx of public to comply with the security measures.
“When we started to prepare the collection we did not know how we were going to be able to present it,” explained the director of the lingerie firm this Thursday to Efe, Nuria Sardá, happy that finally the health situation has allowed the catwalk to be held in a format hybrid, as in the previous edition.

He hopes that society has no memory of a fish and values nature, flavors, colors, smells, “ultimately quality.”
Verino is convinced that fashion generates a desire to enjoy, “in addition to making people feel good” and under this concept he has created a collection for women and men.

Pieces that are not aimed at a specific age and that taken out of context are very “wearable”, they can be adapted to any wardrobe and personality, at any time of the day, for a man who likes to “experiment without going crazy”.
