Valencia is in fashion!
Valencia is a city where you can breathe art, fashion and design in every step you take. Perhaps it is because of the Mediterranean essence and the light that inspired Sorolla, its 2,000 years of history and traditions that are still very much alive, its vibrant culture and its innovative spirit that makes us always look to the future.
This perfect combination of factors has allowed the city to be the birthplace of numerous talented designers such as Francis Montesinos, Hannibal Laguna and Dolores Cortés.
And as creativity in Valencia never stops, there are always outstanding events that serve as a showcase for Valencian fashion and design for the whole world. Would you like to get to know two of the most outstanding festivals?
