Freedom: Spain

We asked creators around the world to interpret the meaning of latitude through the ultimate language of self-expression: fashion. The result? A global tapestry depicting modern-day culture and identity, woven together by threads that feel as universal as they do unique. Check back each week for a new installment of the series.

Sabadell, Spain

“Freedom today is about small personal choices as consumers and as creative people that want to integrate all aspects of being, since all is interconnected. The group of people we photographed are consumers of Makeo, a store that offers hand-selected vintage clothing from local sources. In less than two years, there has grown a vast list of people in the area who don’t want to consume fast fashion. The setting is Sabadell, an industrial city with a large textile heritage that was swept away by other, cheaper sources of production.” Daniel Riera
