Jesus Del Pozo
Jesus Del Pozo was a Spanish fashion designer born in Madrid in 1946. He opened his first boutique in 1974, Del Pozo was embarking on his career at the same time as Spain was beginning to transition from the dictatorship of Franco to democracy. The change in politics coincided with a change in social values now described as La Movida. Del Pozo, as an artist and designer, played an important part in this “Movement” and was regarded as a key influence in the modernization of Spanish style.
A 2010 quote sums up his philosophy: “I love women and I love promoting the positive. I do not want uniformity. It is important that each person brings something of his personality, so I try to do flexible and adaptive fashion.”
Perfumes became an important piece of the Del Pozo brand’s offering, with Halloween (1997) becoming an international best-seller and spinning off a series of limited editions and flankers in future years.
Del Pozo passed away in August 2011
