FAREWELL TO BREAD AND BUTTER
For: Writing ASMODA
Augustín Cordón/Karl-Heinz Müller
G-Star Show
The fair Bread and Butter, the German lounge of the urban fashion celebrated recently in Barcelona, has said goodbye seems that definitely of the city of a count. In his last July edition it had received 100.000 visitors who, according to estimation of the organizers, had left about 100 millions in three scarce days of duration. That's why the announcement that from now on it will be celebrated again in Germany, specifically in the ancient Tempelhof airport, has been like a shake inside the world of the Catalan fashion that has suffered in the latter years several oscillations and negative controversies for the image of Barcelona like capital of the fashion that it had shown with splendor in other epochs.

We all remember the "battles" between the footbridge Gaudi and the Footbridge Cibeles and the impossibility of the only footbridge that had fought insistently in the most significant fashionable ambiences. The Footbridge Gaudi creator of the formula – it began in 1984 one year rather than Cibeles - stopped existing for one we believe that wrong decision with the politics as fund. It was said then that Barcelona was betting for a younger and avant-garde fashion with presentations in which the art and the culture had an important role, but, although it has achieved some successes in this area, he has suffered the march of important designers who have decided on surer bets. Josep Font and Custo Barcelona have demolished to Paris and other designers of success like Lydia Delgado, Guillermina Baeza, Situated Murt and recently a name of so many roots in Catalonia like Antonio Miró they have enlisted in the Footbridge Cibeles.

We hope that the latter events should make reflect on the persons in charge of the Generalitat and the Town hall and should look for formulae more according to the reality and the solidarity that are capable of returning to Barcelona the prestige of a pioneering city inside the Spanish fashion, a prestige that should never have lost.
