Agatha Ruiz de la Prada
If there’s one thing that the Spanish designer has been characterised for, it’s looking at life in the most colourful way possible, and for creating designs that show her creativity and dedication to the world. Agatha Ruiz de la Prada is not just a designer.
Agatha Ruiz de la Prada turns her garments into art. Garments that blur the boundaries of design and that become authentic works of art. Art that has, since the very early days, been displayed in museums and galleries in cities across Europe, America and Asia.
Always at the forefront of the latest technology, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada works closely with the digital platform, Google Arts & Culture, for its international project We wear Culture. The platform exhibits two virtual exhibitions that pay tribute to Agatha’s singularity as a cultural heritage within the fashion world.
After gracing the world’s greatest catwalks in Paris, Milan or New York, the artist and designer lands in Lanzarote to present her latest collection in the volcanic backdrop of Jameos del Agua.
The designer has her own personal links with Lanzarote. Her father, Juan Manuel Ruiz de la Prada, was considered one of the advocates of Lanzarote architecture along with César Manrique. She wants to pay her own tribute to an island that was so important in her father’s life, and which nurtured her own interest for art and design from a very young age.
