No … but I did have the opportunity to hide something inside a bikini. I was doing a bathroom collection and journalist Pedro Piqueras had a TV show and they asked me if I could put a hidden camera in one to see what the model saw when I was on the catwalk.

They say that all dresses have a message What do yours say?
They always talk about that aesthetic freedom that I think is good to keep remembering. When we started writing that story it was at the end of the 80s of the 90s.
