In addition, BCool will take Hotel Tequendama’s floor 17, specifically the Presidential Suite, and there will be placed around 12 designers/brands with a cutting-edge identity and will show their products to the visitor so this one can buy the exhibited pieces within the Pop Up Store, while they live experiences in charge of the participant brands.
Hotel Tequendama, an iconic place to live Bcapital
Historically the Hotel Tequendama has been an emblematic stage for Bogota where the political, social and cultural leadership has been highlighted on its path. Fashion has taken place in this scenario, as in this great room key pages for Colombian fashion have been written, like in 1954 when Parisian models paraded some of the creations of the designer Christian Dior; and also in 1966 in this same place and looking forward, a group of Colombians answered to the question about how the fashion was going to be in the future, bringing an era called La Moda del Año 2000.
BCapital will be in Hotel Tequendama to continue with the Country’s Fashion history. In this place, authentic ideas from the Colombian design will be exploited and furthermore, art, design, and fashion sinergies that emerged in 1966 will continue.
During October 17-18, Bogota will receive fashion, that one characterized for being distinct and unique, making Colombia to be in the vanguard and to be a world referent because of its differentiating talents. BCapital will be the place where established conventions will be questioned and challenged in order to take fashion to new limits.
