”Montesinos. Las otras caras del mito”

Conference – 15 December  20:00 pm

Cines Lys, Valencia

Valencia World Design Capital 2022

Why did Almodóvar play Montesinos and recreate the emblematic Las Ventas fashion show for the film Matador? The skirt with which he dressed Miguel Bosé is earlier than the one Jean Paul Gaultier showed? His original handkerchief shirt was copied by Gianni Versace? Why was he the first designer to print denim clothes? Visionary, creative, innovative and always rebellious, his aesthetic proposals have set social, industrial and cultural standards, industrial and cultural guidelines. In short, an artist who deserved a documentary, because of his importance in the world of design.
