Occupation
Designer

Antonio Miro was born in Sabadell (Barcelona) in 1947. From his father, a salesman of high quality fabrics, he inherited his taste for clothes and his knowledge of high class tailoring. At the age of 19, together with his brother Esteban, he opened a clothes shop in the trendy place of the 60s in Spain: Platja d’Aro on the Costa Brava. In the shop, called Groc (Yellow in Catalan), the brothers put on a show of the latest fashions, occasionally together with items designed by them. During the two years it was open, Groc was the place to go in all of Europe.

Later on, Antonio and Esteban Miró were able to open another shop in Barcelona, which slowly established itself among the high society in the city.

In 1977, the designer registered the Antonio Miró brand for men and women, which allowed him to begin exporting and to take part in the most prestigious international fashion shows.

In 1987, he received the Cristóbal Balenciaga Award as the best Spanish designer. Five years later, he was responsible for the creation of the wardrobe for the Barcelona Olympic Games. Another highlight on his CV is the design of the curtain for the recently reconstructed Gran Teatre del Liceu (Opera House) in Barcelona.
