His journey began, as with many of us, with his mother. “She was high society, extremely elegant,” says creative director Josep Font. “So I was always around that type of dressing, style, and garments.”
However, when he told his father of his love of fashion, he replied, “What? That’s not a profession!” Font then chose to study architecture to appease his father. Near the end of his studies, he began designing on the side, sketching for his own enjoyment.
From there, things happened quite quickly – first sketches, then learning how to work with fabrics, winning awards and moving to Paris, followed by debuting his first collection as the head of the Spanish fashion house DELPOZO in Madrid three seasons ago with his New York Fashion Week debut just this past February.
DELPOZO began as the atelier of designer Jesús del Pozo in 1974 Madrid – built in the midst of “Movida”, both an economic upturn and the emergence of a new Spanish identity. While del Pozo was a driving force of this movement, his collections continue to thrive due to his dedication to luxury, creativity, and quality craftsmanship.
Now up for their second Fashion Week go-round, the DELPOZO team is more than prepared to live up to their founder’s values. Presenting Font’s second collection, one that is completely handcrafted and beautifully detailed, there’s no doubt that it will be a remarkable milestone on the journey of DELPOZO.
So much work goes into the production of a fashion show, here’s a peek at DELPOZO preparing for their day tomorrow at New York Fashion week…through hair and makeup tests, crews setting up the environment, and PR girls tweaking the seating charts, we know it will be a great show…
…and you know how much we love DELPOZO here at Ann Street Studio!
