On November 15, a pioneering project with emerging designers will be presented at Sala BBK in Bilbao "BBK BIAAF FASHION LAB"

In this meeting, a group of young creators of BIAAF will share the experience and knowledge acquired in the BBK BIAAF FASHION LAB with emerging designers, teachers and design professionals of Bizkaia, exposing the whole process developed, (inspiration, creation, management and taking of decisions …) until successfully completing the design and placing on the market of its first capsule collection, in which they have reinterpreted their common roots and traditions, rooted in Basque cultural heritage.

Place: Sala BBK (Gran Vía 19, Bilbao)
Date: November 15 at 10.00am
Free registrations: 

Project Context:

From the forms of the popular costume, to the scenes and color palette of Basque artists as universal as Ignacio Zuloaga, Valentín de Zubiaurre, Aurelio Arteta or José Arruelva, of course going through the inevitable influence of maestro Cristóbal Balenciaga, these young people pay homage to a common cultural heritage, transporting it to the forefront of the emerging international fashion scene.


BILBAO BIZKAIA DESIGN WEEK is a project promoted by BIDC, Bilbao City Council and the Provincial Council of Bizkaia to promote creative and cultural industries in the Territory. Since 2014, every week in November a week is celebrated that pays tribute to the culture and makes visible the different projects that take place in Bizkaia. Check all the programming here.
