Lydia Delgado Spring 2010MADRID, Oct 24, 2009 / — Ink green, violet, yellow and pink are the colors in Lydia Delgado’s latest collection. A different spirit of summer, gardens and sea airs.

Liberty prints in silhouetted bathrobe dresses stamp personality and freshness on whoever wears them. Vintage satin negligees are worn with men’s shirts replacing jackets. They contrast with waist-hugging bathrobe dresses with small corsets and spectacular skirts.

Liturgical shirt-waisters for the evening reveal the sexiest side of the girls playing with the alliance of opposites. Fantasy converges.

Extremely low necklines and drapées reveal shoulders and backs in a cocktail of light, moon, palm trees and music.

A native of Barcelona, Lydia Delgado was trained to be a dancer but a fortuitous encounter with the designer Antonio Miró, she discovered her talent for fashion design.

In 1987, Lydia Delgado opened her own atelier in downtown Barcelona on Calle Minerva, an intimate surrounding with a personality of its own, reminiscent of haute-couture. Briefly afterwards, she opened her store in Barcelona in time with her debut in Pasarela Gaudí.

In 1998, Lydia Delgado launched her prêt-à-porter line as a more accessible option, albeit without sacrificing her commitment to careful and painstaking craftsmanship.

In 2000, Lydia Delgado presented her bride collection at the Royal Palace of Pedralbes. In 2004 Lydia Delgado opened her Madrid store in the prestigious district of Barrio de Salamanca.

Today, Lydia Delgado is one of the most prestigious names in Spanish fashion. Her exclusive world has an identity all of its own as a result of her personal determination to preserve her original values throughout the years: a passion for quality, artistic creativity and visual strength, as well as a weakness for details and unostentatious elegance.
