Production Designer: Carlos de Dorremochea, Jorge Soto.

Set in 1958, when fashion in Spain underwent an important change with the appearance of prêt-à-porter. This series revolves around a fashion boutique, or gallery, with seamstresses and saleswomen. The Márquez family manages this shop and consists of the patriarch, Don Rafael Márquez (Tito Valverde), his wife, Doña Gloria (Natalia Millán), Don Rafael’s son (Doña Gloria’s step-son), Alberto (Miguel Ángel Silvestre), and Patricia Márquez (Miriam Giovanelli), Gloria’s daughter.

However, the central plot thread of the series is the love between the two stars. Ana (Paula Echevarría) is a seamstress in the boutique, beautiful, pleasant and courageous. Her parents died when she was little and so she decided to go to Madrid with her uncle Emilio (José Sacristán), who also works at the gallery. From the time she was little she was always in love with Alberto, but she knows they could never be together because of the different classes they belong to; but this is a love that both of them are prepared to fight for. Besides all that, Alberto has a fiancée, Cristina Otegui (Manuela Velasco), whom he doesn’t love.

Inside Antena 3’s Studio 8, which measures 2,000 square meters, plus 400 square meters of mezzanine, we built five complexes: the galleries, the workshops, the offices, the workers’ bedrooms and a cafeteria. Outside the set we built the Galleries’ façade, a dead-end street and a luxurious attic terrace overlooking Madrid’s Gran Via.

Among the most notable factors conditioning the décor was the height of the set, almost 9 meters, the ceilings with their illumination pits, a mezzanine measuring more than 400 square meters and, above all, the materials and finishes required – sculpted alabaster, travertine marbles, red marble from Alicante, Venetian stucco, lots of wood on the walls, paneling, woodwork and tons of carpentry, two-meter-high lights illuminating alabaster figures, inlaid Higuerilla marquetry-style soffits and exclusive, one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. The wrought iron columns were also one-of-a-kind, custom-made pieces especially for this production.
