AGATHA RUIZ DE LA PRADA
Agatha Ruiz de la Prada (Madrid, 1960) studied in the School of Arts and Techniques of Fashion of Barcelona. When she was 20, she began working as an intern at the studio of designer Pepe Rubio in Madrid. Only a year after, her first collection was presented at the design center LOCAL in Madrid. Ever since, her designs have been shown in the most international capitals of fashion; Paris, Milan, Berlin, Madrid and Barcelona.
Agatha has been a guest of honor and representative of Spanish fashion at main catwalks around the world. Her designs have become a true medium of artistic expression, and her master pieces have been displayed in major galleries and museums from Europe, America and Asia.
Agatha has collaborated with numerous artists like Enrique Vega, Gloria García Lorca, Eduardo Chillida, Pep Guerrero, Luis Galliussi, Philippe Andrieux, Bárbara Juan, Ciuco Gutiérrez, Christopher Makos, Miguel Ángel Molina, Michel Bresson, Ramiro E., Orlan, Nicole Herzog, Karim Rashid…
In 2011, the Agatha Ruiz de la Prada Foundation was constituted, conserving an important representation of Agatha’s progression during her past thirty years of history in the world of fashion and creativity, with the purpose of classifying and diffusing her impressive documentary legacy.
