Street parades in the streets of Barcelona

The fashion parade, called ’BCN Moda en la Calle’, began last Friday with a catwalk in La Pedrera in Barcelona, situated in the Passeig de Gracia. Other shows will be able to see: the 23th of October in the Tajo Street and 30th of October in the Rambla Fabra i Puig. Each parade will contain proposals for stores near the areas where they are held, ranging in price between 30 and 1,500 euros. All are free and open to all citizens. The initiative is proving a success, not only in number of visitors, but also for businesses in areas as stated the president of the Foundation, Joan Mateu. The initiative aims to show the public the latest trends that are sold in stores in the city closest to the parade, so that attendees can purchase items of clothing and accessories that show the models near the parades. The Fundació Barcelona Comerç is a nonprofit organization whose goal and purpose is to promote all types of projects and activities aimed at promoting the development of urban commerce in Barcelona Shopping Areas.
