DESIGNS "OF BOOK" IN ISTANBUL
"12 suits for Istanbul" it is the title of the Sample that is exhibited in the Academy of the Fashion of Istanbul until next October 20, and that consists of the fact that several Spanish designers have dressed diverse personages of the Hispanic literature. The initiative has organized the Spanish Department of Culture with the impulse of the Creators' Association of Fashion of Spain, of which he is president Modesto Lomba, who certainly will take part soon also in the International Congress of Fashion (CIM2008) in Madrid.
The idea, as he tells the police station of the exhibition, Concha Hernández, is "to dress our big works of the literature", a project that was received by real enthusiasm" by the Spanish couturiers. From a text of a significant work of each of the chosen authors, the designers were employed at his suits. The designs are a fruit, in words of Modesto Lomba, president of the Association Creator of Fashion of Spain, of "two luminosities of those that the country informs: the one that gives him the Atlantic Ocean and the one that bathes the Mediterranean".
The literary authors on whom this exhibition is based are: Gabriel García Márquez, Antonio Gamoneda, Carlos Fuentes, Antonio Muñoz Molina, Carmen Martín Gaite and Maria Zambrano. Devotee and Lomba, for example, was inspired by a passage of "Hundred years of solitude", of the Colombian Nóbel Gabriel García Márquez to make a worn out garment by means of triangular creases; Ágatha Ruiz of the Prada identified with the protagonist of "Ilona comes with the rain", of the Colombian Álvaro Mutis to create the outfit of a woman to his 40 and so many people, sure but infantile; Alma Aguilar dresses in one of his suits the widow of "Five hours with Mario", of Miguel Delibes, with a black garment of a little high size and court princess; Ailanto based on the Mexican Carlos Fuentes of "The years with Laura Díaz"; the Spastor have been inspired by the poem "Latitude, Mandorla", of José Ángel Valente, creating a rigorous black overcoat; Francis Montesinos adorns Carlota Fainberg with an elaborated garment of flowers and frills, personage of Antonio Muñoz Molina; and Lydia Delgado gives an outfit with oriental reminiscences the young woman of "Quarter of marvels", of writer Rosa Chacel.
At the opening of the Sample there were present also representatives of the Department of Culture of Turkey, in addition to personages of the fashion and the Turkish arts.
