Here on Sewing Divas, we are big fans of Paco Peralta, a fashion designer based in Barcelona. Paco is a master of his art, and his designs embody that wonderful Spanish flair for tailoring we all know from modern masters such as Balenciaga.
A rich history of Spanish court dress, ecclesiastical clothing, and matador costume is infused into Paco’s work, along with modern influences from Armani and Ralph Rucci. The end result is truly special. On his blog Paco shares his work and technique; he is generous with his knowledge and I have learned much from him in a very short time. His vidoes even have a musical soundtrack! His blog is in Spanish, but he has thoughtfully added a handy Google translator that works in several languages. His sister Isabel does his fabulous photpgraphy and videos, and we sewists can learn a lot from her as well when it comes to lighting and styling our projects.
We have a link to Paco on our blogroll, and if you have not yet checked him out please do so!
