From evening gowns to beach wear to contemporary sportswear, you’ll find that Madrid is right on trend, up there with major fashion cities like Milan, London or New York. Check out some of spring’s best emerging fashion designers right here in Madrid.

Miguel Marinero

Once working only with fur, Miguel Marinero has expanded to include all sorts of fabrics and styles in this collection. Even the spring looks never lose that Marinero fur touch though – the design team always finds a way to incorporate different textures and fur into even the most summery of looks. While Marinero has been a staple on the Madrid fashion scene for years, it’s only recently that the brand has climbed to international heights, and it’s likely you’ll see the label in many shops around the world soon.

Hannibal Laguna

If you’re in need of evening wear, look no further than Hannibal Laguna. Specializing in wedding and special occasion wear, you’ll be the talk of the town if you show up in a Laguna design. Although the designer was born in Venezuela, he’s part Spanish and has made a huge name for himself here in Madrid. His designs are becoming more popular around Europe and Latin America, and with good reason: the evening wear is simply stunning. This spring, he focused on light colors and floral patterns.

The 2nd SKIN CO

Started in 2006 by Antonio Burillo and Juan Carlos Fernández, the 2nd SKIN CO has been growing in popularity ever since. With a sleek and feminine design aesthetic, these garments flatter the female figure, the essence of elegance. Their pastel and pink looks for Spring 2017 are especially intriguing, with bold, retro takes on traditional silhouettes.

Angel Schlesser

Formed by design duo Ángel Fernández Ovejero and Juan Rufete, Angel Schlesser’s been a part of the Madrid fashion scene since 1983. The brand has been showing its collections at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid since 1988 and not only designs clothes, but also perfume, home goods and even flight attendant uniforms. There are three Schlesser stores open in Madrid and the collection is also available nationally at the occasional El Corte Inglés department store, but we’re hoping this cool brand will soon take things international. Schlesser fabric choices are always on point, and for spring, we see lots of pink in velvet and shiny silk.
