Teresa Helbig and Pertegaz Excellence on the Catwalk

Teresa Helbig and Pertegaz have presented designs to celebrate full of details.

Excellent sewing, craftsmanship and the presence in each stitch of the desire for a woman to feel confident and willing to take over the world with her garments is Teresa Helbig‘s hallmark in each of her collections.

Thank you for watching

The designer has closed the day this Friday of the 74th edition of the Madrid catwalk, where she has celebrated the twenty-fifth anniversary of the birth of her firm and has taken the opportunity to make some winks to that first collection in which she herself was the model on the one from which the designs were tested. “They were all very short,” she recalls between smiles.

Her passion for fashion began when she was a child and the cinema opened the doors to a world of “wonderful women” that she wanted to be part of, a memory that has led her to present a collection “very ‘celebrity’, super short, to celebrate “This anniversary, a proposal with touches of the sixties and seventies” a la Faye Dunaway “.

A girl’s dream that Helbig has come true: she is one of the most successful designers on red carpets. Her clothes have been worn by Ursula Corbero, Macarena Gomez, Halle Berry, Olivia Wilde or Priyanka Chopra.

In this collection he renounces the heels, “enough already, I see them stale,” she says, while showing elaborate raffia garments, meticulously created by hand, with which each of the contours of a jacket  is shaped. a skirt.

Investing in Amazon or other stocks could …
She proudly displays a new collaboration, made with a Galician weaver that combines velvet, raffia and metal applications. “If Coco (Chanel) had her tweed, we had to create ours.”
On the catwalk they have been seen, delicate silk dresses embroidered with care, fur bombers with rabbit hair, leather jackets in wool crepe with a flamingo as a print.

They catch the eye, minimal skirts, which actually hide shorts and the suede game with python leather inlays, with timelessness and quality as a flag.

“A moment of freedom”
Along the same lines, Jorge Vazquez, creative director of Pertegaz, has made pieces for a contemporary woman revisiting the decade of the ’70s, “a moment of freedom”, which moves, with an eye on Africa, to tunics with bibs of fantasy studded with beads, kaftans.

There is no shortage of impeccable tailored suits in “animal print” of zebra and leopard, combined with a blouse with large collars with frills in intense fuchsia, a trademark tone of the house.


Vazquez, who has dressed the actress of the moment Zendaya and Sharon Stone, recalls that in the 70s fashion was revolutionized and sewing was put aside to opt for more urban garments “as it happens now that events have been reduced Pertegaz also knew how to adapt to the times “and evolved towards a tailoring with marked shoulders and even transparencies.

The Galician creator has winked to that stage of the house by reproducing on a dress, a psychedelic pattern of waves in fuchsia, coral, brown and white, although the pants have a marked role in this collection.
