I should really get a map of Spain and learn geography 101. Learn and travel. Too many places to go, I should be drafting a travel plan soon.
First stop, Pontevedra where the amazingly eccentric designer (Agatha Ruiz, meet you future match) Amai, Rodriguez is from.
Amai shocked Pasarela Cibeles with her collection based on parties and nightouts of a materialistic youth who want to shy away from reality.
Original, extravagant and outrageous, the collection was shown in three parts--before , during and after the party. Ms. Rodriguez received the L'oreal Paris Prize for best collection this year.
The pieces were wild, colorful with use of masks, hats of different shapes and sizes. More like a mixture of the Venice carnival meets Disneyland meets Willy Wonker and The Chocolate Factory.
Amai Rodriguez was born in Poio Pontevedra in 1985 and had her catwalk debut last year.
Pontevedra is based in Galicia which is famous for its superb seafood. Now they can add "fashion" to its list.
