Antonio Burillo studied fashion design in Marangoni Institute in Milan, while Juan Carlos Fernández qualified in Economics before working in advertising. When they met, it was a meeting of minds. "The day we began sharing our inspirations, tastes and dreams was an exciting and mutually motivational meeting," says Fernández. "We shared the absolute need to unite our dreams to forge something together." They founded their label, The 2nd Skin Co. in Madrid in 2006. "The Second Skin Co. wins when it's up close. Our creations have to be touched, tried on and worn. That's where the importance of the detail can really be appreciated."
