In the 20’s Catalonia was closely connected to Paris, the capital of fashion, thanks to a textile industry that developed in Catalan cities such as Sabadell and Terrassa. During these years the bourgeoisie of the city stopped buying in Paris and began to encourage local production. The result was a golden era of genuine Catalan fashion with big names like Manuel Pertegaz, Pedro Rodríguez, Carmer Mir, Asunción Bastida, Rosser and Pedro Rovira among others.
To pay tribute to all these great designers Palau Robert have put together an exhibition that opened December 14 including more than 800 dresses made by these masters of haute couture. In addition, it also includes pieces from Balenciaga, Margarita Nuez and mythical stores from that era such as El Dique Flotante or Santa Eulalia itself. All creations come from the private collection of Antoni de Montpalau.
After a very successful exhibition at the Museum of Costume in Madrid, where over 40,000 people visited it and after passing through other cities such as Oviedo and Teruel, the collection is now to be seen in Barcelona for the first time in such a unique place as the Palau Robert until May 1.
