No, we are not talking about the crisis. We don’t know if Madrid also felt the lean of this crisis which is on everyone’s lips, but what is certain is that we will see cows. Indeed, Madrid suffers, from January 16 through March 21, a stampede of cows colorists made life-size fiberglass, designed by artists like Victor Ochoa, Alfonso Berridi, are Mackaoui or Antonio Alvarado: the Cow Parade. The ruminant pastaran quietly through the main streets of the districts of Salamanca, Centro and Retiro. Dropbox may not feel the same. This artistic exposure outdoors, which aims to underline the importance of art as a right for all, has already held in other 50 capitals of the world and ends with a charity auction whose fundraising will go to non-profit organizations. Nothing like the cows will be what we see in the international Madrid fashion show (SIMM) and the Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week (12-14 and 20-24 February, respectively), that will present proposals for fashion fall/winter 2009/10 on campus IFEMA trade fair. This biannual event, the evolution of the old footbridge Cibeles, already celebrates its 49th Edition, and promises to not leave indifferent to public or media, which have echoed in past editions of the controversy surrounding the thinness of the models. The happy conjunction of so fascinating and contrasting events makes it advisable to search and book hotels in Madrid as soon as possible.. Source: Jim Crane.
