That one is working to obtain a recognition at the first national level … because international it is already had sometimes. But here it is always difficult that they recognize you in ‘house‘. I feel lucky, because there are great those who bet for me and my collections.

Intrinsically not, it is true that a jewel is forever. But this does not mean that only one has to be had. We are evolving and changing, and that's why it is important to identify us being versatile, without he having to resign from something already acquired or slightly new. The past is ours and it is part of our present and our future but it does not indicate that we have to stick to ourselves to.

It depends, for that they understand it, they look for it and it comprises it. Those who do not have this artistic culture, value only the materials, do not know it and do not come to her. But it is changing little by little … does to him that cultural esthetics come to the people, and that they understand and value the art in general

If it had to do an exhibition: what Spanish and foreign designers would it select?
I realize exhibitions every month and a half … and we are always receiving new and innovative proposals. I have had big designers accompanying myself in my establishment and coming to my clients, and hope to keep on having to many other. It is one to flow of ideas, of art, of emotions and forms, in that to 'dress' all those persons that it seduces them feeling different and communicating something peculiar to the others.
Finally, many artists have accompanied me, many others accompany me and I hope that they should keep on realizing it, others, in the future. Both Spanish and foreign.
