Madrid is the capital of fashion, and has been since as far back as the reigns of Charles V and his son Philip II during the 16th century. A walk through the central alleyways of Madrid de los Austrias proves it, with its numerous fabric shops, tailors, boutiques offering elegant and unique clothing, which stand between entertainment venues and flamenco bars. Indeed, Madrid is where a 100-year-old tailor’s shop, Peris Costumes, has prepared some of the costumes for productions such as Bridgerton, Emily in Paris or The Queen’s Gambit. Their work has put Spanish fashion in the spotlight as an international fashion hub, whose work graces the small and the big screen alike, not to mention catwalks all over the world.
