-Agatha Ruiz de la Prada-

As a designer I am always looking for inspiration that motivates me to keep pushing myself to think differently. I have recently started to design for younger crowds and I have to admit that my inner kid is more awake than ever. I love designing for them because no matter what, you know it will be fun! But FUN takes another level with Agatha Ruiz de la Prada. This Spanish designer, born in the 60's, entered fashion runways in the 80's with a women collection in Madrid; since then she has built a colorful, unpredictable empire. Her line expanded in the 90's to several products, and now she owns around 140 stores around the world. I mean she is a BIG deal! Make sure to check her out! Her use of color is smart, bold, spontaneous and playful. I really enjoy her work and admire her boldness. Hope you do as well! :)
