In 2002 he instantly became one of Spain’s most provocative designers by covering models’ faces with hoods and putting nooses around their necks at the Pasarela Cibeles fashion show.

He went on to win several international awards and earned Spain’s National Award for Fashion Design in 2016.

He was praised for ‘developing his own avant-garde universe.’
