What do you do?
I study art.

What have been some of your favorite runway shows?
Chromosome Residence, of course, and Maria ke Fisherman.

What does Madrid have that no other city has?
Madrid is super cool. There are tons of Humana stores and, once in awhile, I take the Humana Madrid tour, which involves going around everywhere. And of course, there's the ham and the tapas.

Charlie McCosker, 19 years old

Where are you from?
From Donegal, Ireland.

What have been some of your favorite runway shows?
I loved the global idea of everything that surrounded Maria ke Fisherman; it was a fun show. But I felt completely transported by Hotel Palomo and its energy throughout the whole event. When it ended, it was electrifying. It conveyed a feeling of change.

What does Madrid have that no other city has?
This was the first time that I traveled to Madrid and I'm hooked. I want to come back and I want to live here. The energy is new and electrifying.

María Simun, 22 years old

What do you do?
I design clothes and I'm a stylist.

What have been your favorite shows?
I couldn't choose one, but my favorite moments were the bags of ManéMané, the closing of Agatha Ruiz de la Prada with the incredible wedding dress while they played "Resistiré", and boarding a boat to see the show of Maria ke Fisherman.

What does Madrid have that no other city has?
It's charming and has great vibes. I don't know—in Madrid, all the creative people from Spain seem to meet and no one judges anyone. It's all cool.
