Save the Date! Design+Crafts+Fashion = Al Hilo de Pertegaz

From 31 October to 30 November 2018 an amazing exhibition will take place at the Centro de Artesanía de Aragón, Monasterio de Samos s/n, Zaragoza (Spain). The exhibition brings together design, crafts and fashion in a complex exercise aimed at paying tribute to Spanish fashion designer Pertegaz on the occasion of the centenary of his birth.

As many other initiatives bridging crafts and design, the regional authorities of Aragon and professional association of artisans of the region have been working hard in the latest years with the aim of celebrating the excellence and unique beauty of handmade work.

In partnership with FITCA, they brought together several designers and artisans around Manuel Pertegaz heritage in order to design and create a collection of garments based on the marriage between artisanship, design and fashion. The result will be presented in this exhibition.
