Madrid Fashion Week brings its summer dates forward to June
today Jul 19, 2019
The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid has updated the dates of its 2020 summer edition: instead of being held in July as previously planned, the week will take place from June 23-28, the fashion week's director, Nuria de Miguel, announced . The decision was made in agreement with the designers.
The Madrid fashion week is keen to attract foreign interest, and its last two summer editions had already been brought forward to July from September.
Designers had requested that the former fashion week director Charo Izquierdo, who stepped down from her role a few weeks ago, change the dates of the fashion week. The change to the calendar was "formally put in place after several discussions with the new management," Modesto Lomba, president of Spanish fshion design association, L'Association des Créateurs de Mode d’Espagne (ACME), confirmed to news agency Efe.
At the last edition of the Madrid fashion week, over 40 designers showed and presented their offerings for spring/summer 2020. It's a decisive step forward for "the internationalisation of Spanish fashion," said an Ifema press release. The next Madrid fashion week will take place from 23-28 January 2020.
