There are several charming streets of El Born that form a kind of a local designers’ area, where you can find clothing, art and design made in Barcelona. Some of the places are small workshops while others are concept stores, like Ozz.
Ozz is a selection of local trends that are combined in the same space with exhibitions of urban artists from around the world, illustrations, jewelry and accessories. They also have products with recycled materials made in Barcelona and a proprietary brand produced with ecological materials.
At Ozz they carefully choose resident designers in Barcelona and exhibit their pieces to sell. They work with emerging designers as a dissemination platform and with brands that follow the principles of slow fashion of zero-waste, upcycling or the use of organic fabrics of fair trade.
The store is like a fashion gallery where each designer has got their own space and a short written presentation that states the essential about their brand and their concept.
Ozz also include multipurpose areas for Pop-Ups and exhibitions of photography, fashion, video-art, fashions films and a coworking space for digital creatives of Barcelona.Ika (above) is a handcrafted clothing and accessories brand.
