Nuria Sarda received by Queen Letizia of Spain

Her Majesty the queen of Spain, Letizia, received Nuria Sarda, in name of ANDRES SARDA last April 12th. 

The Queen was very interested in meeting Spanish Designers, especially those granted with the “Premio Nacional de la Moda”, like Andres Sarda.  The reception took place at the Zarzuela Palace in Madrid. The “Premio Nacional de la Moda” recognises the professional career or work of a couturier or a designer. The panel of judges takes several things into account: originality, quality, innovation or an outstanding contribution.

We are extremely proud of Nuria Sarda and her team for their amazing work and this great honor.

The first Van de Velde Employee Day

We believe it is important that all of our employees know where we want to go with our company. Therefore we changed the formula of the annual staff party. The very first Van de Velde ‘Employee Day’ consisted of two parts. In the morning we informed everybody about the company's future plans. Colleagues of different departments presented today and tomorow's projects. In the afternoon it was time for some true ‘#vandeveldefun’. Everybody could participate in several active and fun workshops.

150 years and counting - PrimaDonna, the very best fit for large breasts

Lingerie brand PrimaDonna celebrates 150 years of craftsmanship with an exhibition and a fashion show at Bozar

Curvy women have luxuriated in the craftsmanship of PrimaDonna for 150 years. The Belgian lingerie brand for women who take a large cup celebrates that anniversary with a dazzling exhibition and a curvy fashion show at the Centre for Fine Arts (Bozar) in Brussels. ‘La mémoire de l’intime’ reveals and captivates with head-turning lingerie from past to present, providing insight into the production process of perhaps the most refined of fashion disciplines.

La mémoire de l’intime was part of the wider story of Belgian fashion, an exhibition you could see at the Centre for Fine Arts from June to September 2015. As a purveyor of lingerie for women who take a large cup, PrimaDonna is an expert in surely one of fashion’s most refined disciplines. The brand’s very mission is to create bang-on-trend lingerie that fits large breasts perfectly. PrimaDonna has been doing that for 150 years and plans to continue to do so for many more years: breathtakingly gorgeous, perfect-fitting lingerie for every woman who takes a large cup.
