Today it’s the turn of one of the mentees of the Met Community program, which I have talked to you about more than once, and one of the projects that she has created. This mentee is Arancha Guerrero and the project is called ParaPUPAS. Do you want to know about it?

Today I want to introduce you an innovative fashion initiative. Some months ago, I talked to you about the brand and concept called Banhüs, from my friend Tamara. Today I want to tell you something about MOSSTO, another brand I found out a few weeks ago while I was visiting an entrepreneurs’ event in Yimby Bilbao. In that occasion, I came across a peculiar product, designed by Tanya Heath. (more…)
