The Basque fashion designer Ion Fiz, announced by Cibeles as one of the most renowned names of the country's fashion scene, is an enfants terribles of Spanish fashion. Ion Fiz entitles his collection 'My Way' in respond to Diana Vreeland's approach to perfection which lies in authenticity and in the differentiation to others. Ion Fiz works elegantly on 'geometria-asimetrica' like a mathematician who tries to find a new formula for calculating perspective. He is breaking the common forms to evoke the impression of volume.
Ion Fiz' colors which are described with culinaric words such as champagne or chocolate are inspired by classical master painters like Velázquez and Goya.

The world of the designer reflects her political activities for 'Green' themes; the globally understandable flowers and organic forms express love and optimism.
