The mayor of Benidorm, Toni Pérez, has presented this morning a contest that aims to be "a great opportunity and a springboard for new designers of a very important sector for our industry, such as fashion", and stressed that this catwalk "has also a very solid base in the training of young creators who are currently studying in Spanish design schools "
The award, organized by Mediterranean Fashion Beach, under the tutelage of the Confederation of Fashion Companies Spain, has had professionals closely linked to the world of fashion who have been responsible for evaluating each of the collections that will be showed on the catwalk, according to Juan Matea and Enrique Trivaldos, members of MFB.
