Walk the Spanish streets and the first thing you see are the colorful, well-groomed and, of course, busy talking people. Spanish fashion means being groomed and dressed for the occasion. If you are going to a wedding, then as a woman you put on a beautiful dress. In Spain there is still a lot of emphasis on the male and female forms. Spanish fashion is appropriate, but with creative outliers.

People are concerned with their appearance. They want to look good. That's what's great about Spanish fashion; Spaniards like to look well-groomed. Of course, you know Spanish fashion from the big store chains like Zara, Mango, Pull & Bear, Bershka, Stradivarius and Blanco. These stores are all known for their beautiful clothes at reasonable prices. All of them stores that I love to walk into... And also one of the reasons that make living in Spain even more fun.

But Spain has more. Successful and internationally known Spanish designers include Aldolfo Dominguez, Amaya Arzuaga, Antonio Miró and Paco Rabanne.

During fashion week, they and many others show a taste of their latest creations. The biggest fashion spectacle in Spain is Madrid Fashion Week. Or Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid, as Mercedes is the main sponsor of this event. Twice a year, designers from all over the world gather here to showcase their designs. The models walk in colorful creations from which the passion radiates. The clothes are draped around their bodies as if each show is their last.

During Madrid Fashion Week, new talent also gets a chance to show their faces! This is possible during the EGO shows. A way of self-expression is shown where there is a continuous search for new styles and innovative trends.

With Madrid being the fashion capital of Spain, this fashion week is among one of the most important in the world. This, of course, includes big sisters New York, London, Paris and Milan. Other major fashion events in Spain are 080 Barcelona Fashion and Valencia Fashion Week.

Spain has many successful brands, but the big Spanish success story is Zara. Originally started in Barcelona, Zara has grown into one of the world's biggest fashion brands. And with 1,659 stores, Zara continues to grow. Today, Zara also sells furniture and other accessories to decorate your home, or Zara Home.

Zara stores are full of the latest fashions. Zara participates in bold trends (like now the gothic influence and many different materials!) and is not afraid to show its creativity. This is one of the many reasons why we love Zara so much. Zara is unique and the clothes can be combined endlessly. The Spanish Zara stores are all equipped with beautiful design which makes for great shopping!
