Gateway 30 years
Three decades of experience, in which the Madrid catwalk has been demonstrated to be the essential platform for the promotion of Spanish fashion industry as a whole, making Madrid one of the major international fashion capitals. The creation in February 1985 of the Pasarela Cibeles (Cibeles Catwalk), now called Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid and organized by IFEMA, helped to lay the foundations for creativity and design in Spain and at the same time, to promote and publicize the emerging talent in our country.
