This year Agatha Ruiz de la Prada presents her collection in Milan Fashion Week spring-summer 2009, inspirated in the “meninas” of the spanish painter, Velázquez.
Few minutes after the show started, the english comedian Sacha Baron Cohen -actor de 'Borat'- burst onto catwalk until the designer ordered to turn off the lights and police arrested him.
Agatha Ruiz de la Prada’s offer for this season is a collection full of voluptous shapes with folkloric complements as spanish combs and fans, always full of colours as usual in her designs.
