His collection appeared in the official Paris Fashion Week calendar, sat between Loewe and Hermès. Quite the challenge for a young designer to sit alongside such big names, Arturo successfully rose to the challenge. He made his complete collection (and the video that accompanies it) in just 15 days. In Arturo’s theatrical creative universe art, history and today’s turbulent times converge. "Designers are becoming entertainers and sometimes it seems that a selfie counts more than all the hard work behind", he says, praising the discretion of master Balenciaga, one of his greatest references.
He speaks proudly of his roots and the young talent in his country. “I do believe there is a new wave of young Spanish designers coming really strong, promoting our culture and craftmanship”. Meanwhile, he works hard aware that effort and dedication is a prerequisite for success. He searches the soul of fashion, getting away from passing trends and knowing perfectly what his goal is. "I want to create unique and exclusive pieces that people can treasure forever."
