Six designers  presented their collections on the catwalk. First of them was Alejandra Lopez, featuring “Sweet Summer” a collection inspired by Menorca:  embroidered fabrics from the XIX century. “It is a sophisticated and elegant collection designed for a nostalgic woman who likes to feel like those actresses who used to spent summer time by the sea, such as Grace Kelly or Elizabeth Taylor”, she says.
