Catch this week’s podcast with Hortense Giraud, the powerful woman behind MyBarrio. This week’s topic; innovative fashion concepts. Hortense is the founder of MyBarrio, an on and offline space and collective bringing together creative individuals and design lovers. The project is dedicated to connecting these people and to hunt local design treasures around the Barcelona area.
MyBarrio is a space for emerging contemporary and vintage design and lifestyle essences of Barcelona. MyBarrio is new to Barcelona, launching almost a year ago. Hortense is originally from Madrid, but has travelled all over the world from North to South America, Africa. She ended up here in Barcelona, Spain because it “has everything”, and is a perfect place to start a business, because of the fusion of local and creative.
Starting off in the luxury world, before moving to a department store and then to the fast fashion world. Spending her whole career in different perspectives of the fashion industry with a 360-degree view has given Hortense a competitive edge. Hortense shares her thoughts on the local brands in Barcelona; there is something for any kind of taste, style, and so on.
Barrio is Spanish translates to Neighbourhood. So MyBarrio is My Neighbourhood, which adds a personal element to the business. Does fashion change in different barrios? This knowledge has resulted in the formation of a design label that curates and promotes local aesthetic fashion, objects art and is also a growing community of design lovers and creatives; curating, promoting and indulging in the products.
This weekend; May 6th and 7th, MyBarrio will be hosting it’s 4th PopUp Event at Soho house in Barcelona. Click here for event details!
