This interdisciplinary course invites students to explore the most daring, creative, and artistic cultural movements of the late 80´s in Spain, including the world of fashion. Clothing, how we dress and what we wear, has always been a mirror of the society we live-in and this is also the case of Spain during that time. Fashion became a social and cultural statement breaking away from the conservative and grey image of Spain’s past.

Students will learn about the social, cultural, and political context of Spain throughout the 80´s by exploring the new artistic and cultural movements of fashion, photography, film, and music. Fashion has not only played an important role in shaping the Spanish identity, image, and aesthetic, but it has also lifted the Spanish textile industries to amongst the top 10 in the world. Madrid and Barcelona are now recognized international centers for major world fashion shows and events. Spanish designers are globally recognized, and Spanish fashion is sold all over the world.

Students will also learn about the industry, visit different companies, meet with designers and professionals, visit fashion shows and events, and learn about the different sectors of the industry. They will also study the case of Zara and how its success has influenced the whole Spanish fashion scene today.

Talking about Infinite Spur is referring to one of the world´s greatest Alpine challenges. Reaching the top is an extraordinary task and provides great satisfaction. 
Our dreams are somehow similar. Only those who are willing to commit and to continue working towards their goals despite the difficulties, will be able to achieve them.
