A showcase of Fashion and Design from the Region of Valencia, Spain - one of the emerging style hubs of Europe - makes its debut this month in New York.
The Region of Valencia, Spain has established itself as an emerging center for Fashion and Design in Europe. Blending the vanguard and the traditional, modernity with craftsmanship its designers have made a name for themselves in the highly competitive world of European design, and have positioned themselves internationally as innovators and trend-setters.
This June, nineteen design-driven companies from the Region of Valencia that produce fashion, footwear, and accessories will present their latest collections in a 3,000 square foot showroom in the heart of the Soho district, creating a space where Valencian designers, some of whom are already well-established in the U.S., can demonstrate their native talent and creativity. The featured designers are:
Audley, Biviel, Chie Mihara, Eli, Garvalin, Gioseppo,
Hispanitas, Juan Antonio Lopez, Magrit, Oca

ACCESSORIES: Lladr Valencian Design is known for its bright, lively colors, evocative of the region's Mediterranean shores. It is born of a historically diverse cultural background that has produced an aesthetic of contrasts - a cosmopolitan, restless and energetic approach to design that draws on centuries of craftsmanship.
Over half of the shoes designed and manufactured in Spain come from the Valencia Region. Their top two export markets: France and Italy, both highly competitive markets that know a thing or two about stylish footwear, selling 8 million pairs of shoes last year in Italy alone.
