Agatha Ruiz de la Prada

I was googling some facts and Q&A about Karim Rashid, and found it in Washington Post.
The article was spoke about his 6-foot-4 tale and facts that he pretty much wears only white or pink.
~He's the one with the pink suitcase shuttling from Belgrade to Dubai..and so on. Moreover, I find
that he was did collaboration with Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, he designed it's small boutique in Tribeca.

Laterly I'm searching about Agatha and find her official site. Which is strikingly vibrant, brilliant colors and
funny layouts. It brought your eyes to a rich color pallete world, seduce you more than that scandinavian-design websites. Although she's a fashion designer, she designing everyday objects and collabs with many famous global brands and events, from Nestle to Audi, Lacoste to Tour de France. Here's little profile about Agatha Ruiz de la Prada,

'Agatha Ruiz de la Prada started her fashion career in 1980 and has since mantained her style thoughout the international fashion movement. She has designed her own global language of fashion- an authentic revolution against the already established. Agatha's designs reflect love, humor and optimism which she achieves through her extraordinary use of colors and shapes as the basis for the world she has created. From this, Agatha obtains a unique and organic component in all of her works: textiles, furniture, dishes, children´s products, etc.
Agatha Ruiz de la Prada´s concept is that life should embrace the smallest details to compose a world full of color and vitality.'

Sorrounded by her father paintings since little, she always attracted into visual arts and contemporary paintings.  In 2005 she did her retrospective exhibitions in Milan Triennale with Keith Haring. Here are some quotes from her,

'To create something, you need to destroy something..'
'I think my process of deconstruction in order to create, bothers and hurts people..
so when I make a dress with a huge silver ball, people are offended and tell me: 
"Why would I wear this?"
'In fashion, I break peoples bourgeois and conservative mentalities.."
