HERIDADEGATO is a Spanish brand founded in Madrid in 2013 by María Rosenfeldt.
María was born in Madrid sourrounded by pencils and papers within a family related to the art world. She got a degree in fashion at the only fashion school in Madrid and started to work in the Agatha Ruiz de la Prada studio, where she enhace experience on how to build a brand and collections.
HERIDADEGATO is a special case where they pull all their references from art, music and icons like Sinéad O’Connor, Winona Ryder, Björk, Tori Amos or Enya. Music bands like Nirvana, The Smiths, The Replacements and Joy Division and contemporary artists as Sarah Lucas, Tracey Emin, Luciano Fabro, Jannis Kounellis and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.
Trying to give some sanity to the world, HERIDADEGATO avoids producing new fabrics, working mostly with deadstock materials, introducing high quality fake leather and faux fur in the winter collections and they also producing sustainable fabrics with organic non GMO cotton Made in Spain. In every collection they like to work traditional crafts from Spain, researching for experts in laces, knitwear and wool work.
For HERIDADEGATO fashion is everything but nothing. It’s a hard working machine that can change the world, the society and create a new way of combustion.
The line has been worn by the likes of Solange and is stocked internationally in H.Lorenzo, Las Cruxes and The Feathered.
