|Nice creations on sale at Ivori|
December 2012, Catalan designer Carola Alexandre, opened a very special shop in the trendiest area of Barcelona, the Born, the place where young designers are starting to show off: IVORI, a charming corner with all “made in Barcelona”.
Ivori is the dream of a young Catalan designer that has materialized in the hardest time of this crisis. Brave and enterprising, once she found the place that suited her desire, she did not hesitate to take a chance and here she is, offering a high quality product in terms of materials and tailoring but affordable considering that it is about original designs 100% made in Barcelona.

The opening night, a mostly young , eclectic and modern audience, met at 7th, Mirallers Street, just opposite to the famous Lomography photo shop in Spain Lomography and next to the exclusive La Clinique. Acclaimed designers (fashion, graphic and interior) bloggers, artists, clients of the different brands and friends from many parts of Europe, gathered to join Carola on that special day. A cup of wine (Catalonia D.O.) and the delicious cup-cakes made by Ercilia for Dollopi Barcelona were offered to all people joining while they admired the beautiful Ivori collections on sale.

And a memory of the event related to Christmas: Pinecones painted in white, silver and gold with a commemorative label. Why cones? besides being so appropriate at this time ....
IVORI is an adventure I undertake with great enthusiasm, the same with which my great-grandfather bought a vineyard that after many years giving an exquisite fruit, my grandfather turned to a lush pine forest.
This is what I share with you today offering you one of these pinecones, the fruit of the efforts of my ancestors with my touch of enthusiasm for adventure.
