DEATH OF ANTONIO MIRÓ

The Catalan designer Antonio Miró, an emblematic figure of Spanish fashion, died at 74 years, after a career of half a century that took some of his creations with a resolutely « Barcelona » style to international catwalks, announced Thursday the Minister of Culture.

Son of a tailor, the Catalan designer opened his first store at the age of 20 in Barcelona in the late 60s. In 1986, he creates his brand which quickly acquires a very good notoriety which pushes him to present on the international podiums. He was one of the first designers to introduce people from the street in his shows.

In 1988 he received the Cristóbal Balenciaga award for the best Spanish designer.
In 1992, he made all the costumes for the Barcelona Olympic Games ceremony.
In 1997 he designed the new curtain for the reconstruction of the Gran Teatre de Liceu.
In 1999 he founded the Association of Fashion Designers of Spain with ten other designers, with the aim of improving the productivity and image of the sector outside the Spanish market.

In 2000, he received the Fad Medal, awarded by the Association of Industrial Design for the Promotion of Decorative Arts for his entire career.
In 2003 he was awarded the « Antoni Gaudi Barcelona Fashion » medal. Friends of Jacques Mouclier, we offer our sympathy to his family.
