The promenade of the Grava beach Xàbia (Paseo Joaquín Sorolla) hosts a fashion show with dresses inspired by the works of the brilliant painter Joaquín Sorolla designed by Alba García of Cache Croche.
The parade, titled 'Sorolla, sea and light' will be on Saturday, September 16, starting at 19:00 p.m. and has the collaboration of the Departments of Culture and Economic Development, as well as the Rotary Club Jávea, the Xàbia Port Merchants Association, the local artist, Tony Mari and other entities of Xàbia.
Alba García has captured in the designs some of the most representative paintings of the Valencian painter whose death marks 100 years in 2023. It was on August 10, 1923 when the Valencian painter, who visited Xàbia five times, died.
There are 15 pieces made with recycled materials and sustainable fabric by students from the Cànem Fashion School, Artisan Schools, UPV and San Juan Bosco in Valencia, as well as professional painters such as Toni López, Daniel González, Alberto Ruslan, Nieves Puente , Rosana Martí, María Fragoso and Nacho Climent.
The models will parade with hats and headdresses made by the EASD of Valencia and traditional Doña Alpargata footwear.
The parade will take place next to the bronze sculpture of the Valencian painter that presides over the promenade that gives its name and is open to all residents, as well as visitors and tourists.
