LR- How do you feel in Miami?
“I feel like a queen, everybody is treating me so well. I had come to Miami 4 or 5 years ago because I won an award, but this time we have come with a group of Spanish people and we are having a blast,” added Ruiz de la Prada. “Miami is the perfect place to present my collection. I’m here in a hotel with beautiful architecture and decor. The Miami style is very fashionable, it has now been imitated everywhere.”

LR- Could you give us a sneak peek about your collection?
“I can tell you that some fabrics are hand-painted by myself. Before being a fashion designer I wanted to be a painter. I used to buy fabrics and paint myself. I can tell you the colors of my collection go well with the Miami style too,” added Ruiz de la Prada.
LR- Tell us about your Foundation.
“We had to put everything in order to make the beginning of the foundation. Then, we did a fashion show to commemorate the occasion. It was sensational for my taste. As sensational as last year, we made an exhibition with my 50 favorite designs for two months at the “Correr” Museum in Venice. The same exhibition has been in Lima, Peru and Santiago de Chile,” added Ruiz de la Prada.
