Borne’s admirable dozen is my uniquely designed tour on the best independent designers’ showrooms and local brands’ shops that this part of the old city can offer. I will show you a rarely featured Barcelona, the city of sustainable design and local business rather than the glamorous, over exposed noisy Barcelona of standard shopping choices. Avant-guard, atemporal feminine style, casual and edgy, not only I will show you best shops and showrooms and tell you their story, I will work with you as a stylist guiding you through the trends and tendencies, helping you to make best choices for your personal style or gifts. We will meet at the cafe (coffee, tea or a glass of wine are included in the tour price) to get into the right mood for the tour that is 2 - 2.5 hours long. After that I’ll give you the map of our tour in case you will want to come back and have another look.
I live in Barcelona and consult on fashion, style and consumer habits. Occasionally, I do fashion editorials for printed editions. I also do wardrobe cleans-up, and shopping for particular clients. I believe that clothes and personal style are skilful means of self-expression and self-discovery, that working with one's wardrobe & style is, first and foremost, a technique of self-care. Fashion and current trends play their role as well, but we start with wellbeing. I explored Born and can promise you that here’s more to shopping in Barcelona than popular shopping routes and cosy little craftshops. That’s why I came up with this tour: to to help you get new experience, that is in many ways sustainable and authentic. I speak English, Russian and Castellano, so I can guide the tour in either of them.
One coffee, tea or glass of wine is included into the price
We'll visit designer showrooms and local brands shops - the best that Born can offer. The price tag is from 80 to 400 euros per item. The brands specialise in women's clothing and accessories.
Since the clothes, shoes and accessories I selected for this tour are female or unisex, I believe this tour is rather more interesting for women.
