Rafael (1974). Designer born in Aguilas, Spain, now working in London. He graduated from the fashion Academy of Murcia, took a first Master’s degree at the Marangoni Institute in Milan, and then a second at the Central Saint Martin’s College in London. He worked as designer for several ateliers such as Oscar Suleyman in Paris, and Les Copains in Italy. He launched his own brand in 2000 in London, immediately winning awards and getting sponsorships for his shows from important brands, such as Mario Boselli for fabrics and Saga Furs for furs. He presented an almost couture style for an elegant woman who does not turn her nose up at a luxury fur coat. His clothes are on sale in department stores and fashion boutiques in Europe, Japan, and USA.
