A very special event took place in Mallorca this week: the presentation of the newly reformed, emblematic, C&A shop. The local Press, the company’s Directors, friends and other invited guests, all attended this event which unveiled the new Spring-Summer 2016 Collection.
C&A was founded in Sneek (The Netherlands) in 1841, by brothers Clemens and August Brenninkmeijer. After the company’s expansion to Germany in 1911 and to England in 1920, a big international leap was made in the 1960’s with C&A finally reaching Spain in 1983.
This event paid tribute to the clothes chain through fashion. Old photographs from the first years of business, together with posters displaying the chain’s most important historical accomplishments, were on display. Models wore different styles of clothing characteristic to each era, ranging from the beginning of the XX Century, through to the 1980’s and finishing with the fashion trends of today.
The setting was spectacular, special and cosy, with ambience music in the background and candles decorating the ground floor. Of course, our catering service added flavour to the event and caused a sensation amongst the guests. We served, as always, the newest and most avant-garde dishes to the guests for their enjoyment. It was a day where fashion and flavour blended together to turn this special event into a spectacular one.
