Agatha Ruiz De La Prada is Spain’s most important living fashion designer. The Spanish people, and in fact the Spanish government, treat her as a national treasure. Her career began in the post-Franco glow of the La Movida cultural moment of the early 1980s and her revolutionary beginnings are fitting for a fashion designer who creates such radical designs. Her clothing is incandescent and filled with whimsy and joy, but to hear her speak is to know that she is a serious artist and a true champion of self-expression.
This is the second episode in the Dream To Seam interview series.
