In Agatha Ruiz de la Prada's designs there is a constant that is always kept intact. Since her first fashion show in 1980, contemporary art has been a basic reference, not only in the conceptualization of ideas, fundamental in all of her collections, but in the way in which she introduced it to the world of clothing through her choice of silhouettes, materials, colors and the use of the house's classic icons, always falling back on a tug of war between lack/abundance of meaning. This reverts us directly to the use of graphic design, which in an almost omnipotent way is applied to all the branches of her design the first being, naturally, that of the textile printing.
