Totem is pleased to announce its collaboration with the talented designer Arturo Obegero for the organization of its first fashion show during the Paris Women’s Fashion Week in March 2020.
Born in a bohemian family of surfers, in Tapia de Casariego, a fishing village in northern Spain, Arturo Obegero grew up surrounded by nature. He spent his childhood and teenage years in the melancholic town, which left a significant impact on him.
He describes his hometown as “captivating, poetic and aggressively beautiful”, epithets also attributed to his personal aesthetic.
Obegero’s mother encouraged him to pursue the performing arts, which nurtured his sensitivity. Obegero rigorously acquired skills including pattern-cutting before enrolling in the prestigious MA programme at Central Saint Martins, London, where he developed his creative narrative.
Stimulated by the world of dance, the surrealist and neo-noir movements, Arturo Obegero creates a romantic, sensual, and severe wardrobe for men and woman.
