WGSN Womenswear editor Robbie Sinclair forms part of this year’s judging panel for 080 Barcelona Fashion Week S/S 17, a five day fashion event.
Running from June 27th- July 1st, the fashion event is all about celebrating design talent. A key calendar date for buyers and fashion fans alike, Barcelona Fashion Week delivers over 40 catwalk shows over the five days, as well as trend panels, panel discussions about textile industry, art exhibitions, and fashion awards.
This year WGSN’s Robbie joins other fashion industries experts, Vogue’s Lynn Yaeger and Paper Magazine’s Mickey Boardman to judge the catwalk shows. Lynn and Mickey will also be delivering a keynote talk entitled “Eccentric Lives in Fashion”.
Speaking about judging the shows, Robbie said: “It’s a total pleasure to be invited to such a fantastic industry event, and see first hand the new and exciting talent coming through. It’s been great to observe up close everything from the innovative designs, exciting embroidery, how the designers are interpreting gender neutrality and the cool ways each show is being styled by this new talent,” he added.
