Agatha Ruiz De La Prada Greatest Hits by Agatha Ruiz de la Prada

Agatha Ruiz de la Prada began her career in fashion in Madrid in 1981, with the presentation of her first collection in Local, a Design Centre. In the early '80s she opened her studio-store in Madrid, located at No.8, Marques de Riscal Street. During this decade she held her first fashion shows in Barcelona and exhibited painted outfits and drawings in a number of art galleries in the Spanish capital. A leading figure in Madrid's trendy set, Agatha was involved in a vast number of cultural events during these years, including the rock concert-fashion show entitled 'Agatha for President', held at Madrid's Railway Museum. In 1986 she participated in her first collective fashion show in France, and also began to design a range of accessories including espadrilles and tights. In 1988 she participated in Madrid's fashion week Pasarela Cibeles for the first time ever and also presented her collection at Milan's Fashion Show. Early in 1990, Agatha presented her series entitled Trajes Inacabados (Unfinished Outfits) in Berlin and Madrid, before going on to Osaka to present an original collection of Agatha-style kimonos which she called Lady from Spain. Agatha's designs reflect a point of view full of love, humour and optimism, with extraordinary colours and forms as a basis for this world she has created. With this combination she obtains unique and organic components in all her artworks: textiles, furniture, crockery, technology, childcare, etc. Agatha Ruiz de la prada believes in a concept of life focused on the smallest details and a world composed of vitality.
