9th edition of the exhibition

Since 2012, the Museo del Traje presents a new edition of the Mes del Diseño Emergente (Emerging Design Month) every year, which this 2023 has 12 design schools from different parts of our country.

According to Helena López de Hierro, the most interesting thing about this ninth edition is that we observe that this project has more quality every year and, above all, more involvement on the part of the schools, and we continue to really like the idea that we are involved in its school and curricular calendar, because that makes us feel part of all the creation processes and also implication with the new fashion creators.

El Mes del Diseño Emergente  proposes, both to participants and visitors, in the words of Helena: an exhibition made up of micro-exhibitions where the projects are very different and in which the rotation in space also allows us to play with the combination between them, which is the curating part carried out by the museum.

speech line & inspirations 

The freedom that the students of the participating schools is absolute, which is evident in each of the projects presented. However, each one of them has lines that converge, showing the concerns and questions that the new creators of Spanish fashion are asking themselves.

Helena comments that sustainability is something that is implicit in the creation of all young and non-young designers. Right now it is a fundamental line and at the same time, the theme of gender is something that is very implicit in the creations, which means that this year there are super creative designs in this sense. In addition, in this new edition of the Emerging Design Month of the Museo del Traje, the volume has a special relevance in the proposals created by the students and what is interesting is to observe the reinterpretation that each one of the schools has made of it and how they have done it. transformed when it came to being inspired to create the garments on display.
