Barcelona is introducing new formats for its fashion weeks. Following the postponement to September of the Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week, which will adopt a hybrid format, Catalan fashion show 080 Barcelona Fashion has done the same, pushing back its dates and transitioning to a digital-only event.
“080 Barcelona Fashion, which in recent editions has strengthened its commitment to sustainability, new technology, and innovative show formats, has decided its next edition will be staged as a digital event, in order to respond to the industry's current needs, prompted by the health crisis, and at the same time to progress towards new scenarios for fashion,” said the event organizers in a press release. 080 Barcelona Fashion is backed by the Catalan government via Barcelona’s trade, crafts, and fashion council (CCAM).
The 26th edition of 080 Barcelona Fashion was due to be held between the end of June and the beginning of July but has now been postponed to September 14-17. In the same press release, the organizers indicated that a call for applications, with the terms and conditions for the participation of fashion designers and labels to the event, will be published shortly.
