Suite magazine

Suit
Suite magazine, started as a music publication, in one point they wanted to expand their reach and add a fashion section and invite me to become the Fashion Editor.

I've created new sections as the trend topic “Je T’M” and commission the editorial content for example the Renown fashion photographer Daniel Sanwald published his first fashion editorial in Suite. Other collaborators' names are Daniel Riera, Luis Vengas and Nacho Alegre. After a year I move to Paris and partner with Carlos Ramirez to expand all the fashion and lifestyle content in the magazine. What started as a local Barcelona base publication end up gaining international recognition to the point of being on the shelves of top taste maker shops as Colette in Paris.
