Agatha Ruiz de la Prada first stepped into the fashion world in 1981. The collection proved to be such a success that she soon opened her first studio-shop in the Spanish capital and started to participate in fashion shows in Madrid and Barcelona.
Although Agatha gained a certain level of recognition early on in her career, her true fashion breakthrough came when she allied forces with one of Spain’ s most important department stores, El Corte Inglés. Thanks to this partnership, the designer ’ s collections were soon distributed throughout the entire national territory. Having conquered Spain, Agatha little by little started to cross borders and gain international recognition by means of her fashion shows and exhibitions and then expanded the family of products: clothes, furniture, perfumes.
