Joshua, the Canarian apprentice, rose last night as the winner of the third edition of “Maestros de la Costura” in a close contest. After perfectly copying one of Karl Lagerfeld’s designs, he surprised everyone in the final duel with Begoña in an impressive red carpet dress that made him the winner of the talent produced by RTVE in collaboration with Shine Iberia.
Lorenzo Caprile, María Escoté and Alejandro G. Palomo had been asking him for weeks to lose his fear of taking risks. In the final great duel he left everyone with their mouths open. “The cut is super elegant and the idea you have had for this dress is beautiful. It is very elegant, very sophisticated and very chic. It shows that you enjoy the feminine body and I love that it is so discreet in the front and so sexy behind. It has a perfect balance, ”said Alejandro G. Palomo.
Thanks to his effort, dedication and passion, Joshua received the gold mannequin, 50,000 euros and a specialized training course in Fashion Design at the Madrid Higher Fashion Center at the Polytechnic University of Madrid.
Begoña, second classified, will continue her training with a Vogue Diploma in Styling and Fashion Production, taught by Condé Nast College Spain in collaboration with the Carlos III University of Madrid.
For her part, Margarita, third classified, was rewarded with the training program Immersion in the Fashion Industry, taught by the ISEM Fashion Business School of the University of Navarra in Madrid and, while the course lasts, she will stay in a hotel in the Room Mate chain. In addition, Margarita and David (fourth classified) will have the opportunity to receive the avant-garde pattern-making method of superior garments from the master pattern maker and designer Estanislao, which is taught in workshop format at the Eometric center in Barcelona.
Before revealing the name of the winner, the jury dedicated a few words to the apprentices of this promotion: “We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts because, with some exceptions, you have made it easy for us to teach you. Although very difficult to value you. You have given everything in this workshop. You are the best formed promotion to date ”.
“There is a lot of craftsmanship here, lots of love, some refined finishes and this neckline is a triple somersault without a net. I think you have solved it wonderfully well, it is an impeccable job ”, applauded Lorenzo Caprile. María Escoté highlighted the touch of the guipure, “leaving the neck and covering the hand a little”, because it brought “sophistication” and “sensuality”. “Both at the design and clothing level, I think you have done a great job,” he congratulated him.
