Grados combined studying at university with experimentating and learning as a stylist on his own. As a result of his wealth of experience, he has had the opportunity to collaborate with important digital magazines in the Catalan fashion scene.
In his third year at university, he was chosen to represent his institution in Who’s Next in Paris, one of the most recognised fashion trend exhibitions in Europe, in order to showcase the Catalan design in the French capital.
He graduated in 2014 in Fashion Design from the Escola Superior de Disseny i Art Llotja in Barcelona. With his final year Project “Fractum” he was selected to take part in MODAFAD Projecte-T, celebrated within the 080 Barcelona Fashion in July of the same year.
With his design conception, Xavi Grados attempts to make his city, Igualada, his emblem, by using knitwear and incorporating materials such as leather into his pieces, guaranteeing the best quality. He thus, aims to create a product 100% Catalan, with Igualada certificate of origin.
