Agatha Ruiz de la Prada in Chile
Both the municipality of Las Condes and the Agatha Ruiz de la Prada Foundation under the sponsorship of the Embassy of Spain presented the exhibition “AGATHA RUIZ DE LA PRADA EN CHILE” at Las Condes (Chile) which was opened in the presence of the artist and designer from Madrid, packed audiences.
The talent of this “pop girl” as she defines herself, does not go unnoticed, the person in charge of writing the catalog preface is a renown Chilean writer Jorge Edwards, who stated that “the known Chilean virtues—sensibility, balance, pragmatism— have a serious counterpart: the elderly gray. Agatha Ruiz de la Prada’s proposals bring us back to a deep, lost memory: essential colors, rhythms, dazzling, lively colorful explosions”.
Through 55 flagship dresses, specially chosen by Agatha Ruiz de la Prada because they are her favorite ones, the book compiles more than three decades of work in which the designer has been dedicated body and soul to an idea: transmitting optimism through the art, whether through a garment or through any everyday object.
