This year, one of our very own properties – Hotel ME Barcelona – is not only sponsoring this fabulous event, but is hosting the official exclusive 080 Barcelona Fashion Party on Thursday, September 3, 2009!
The hotel is close to Barcelona’s greatest architectural achievements including Agbar Tower, Sagrada Familia and the Olympic Port. We love this hotel’s relaxing and modern rooms that boast excellent views of the city. The clean and modern design is totally chic and makes this hotel a perfect venue for 080 Barcelona Fashion Week’s official party.
080 Barcelona Fashion is an element of the Catalan Fashion Action Plan 2007-2010, a project that the Government of Catalonia’s Ministry of Innovation, Universities and Enterprise in enacting. The Plan was drawn up to reviving the textile sector, creating synergies with Catalonia’s already-thriving fashion design sector, while at the same time responding to the difficulties that independent designers face in producing and marketing their collections both within the region and elsewhere.
The Fashion Action Plan is based on five lines of action: internationalisation, linking creativity and industry, financial support, support to emerging talent and the organisation of a fashion event in the city of Barcelona intended to launch the Catalan capital onto the international stage in the field of design and cutting-edge fashion.
080 Barcelona Fashion is part of this last line of action.
Aimed at filling a gap in the independent fashion circuit, the intention is that this event will turn Barcelona into one of the foremost showcases for fashion on an international level and an unmistakeable point of reference in the world of fashion and cutting-edge design. 080 Barcelona Fashion is therefore committed to the “culture of fashion” in a global sense, and is intended as more than just a fashion show.
