Agatha Ruiz de la Prada began her career in fashion in Madrid in 1981, with the presentation of her first collection in Local, a Design Centre. In the early '80s she opened her studio-store in Madrid, located at No.8, Marqués de Riscal Street. During this decade she held her first fashion shows in Barcelona and exhibited painted outfits and drawings in a number of art galleries in the Spanish capital. A leading figure in Madrid's trendy set, Agatha was involved in a vast number of cultural events during these years, including the rock concert-fashion show entitled Agatha for President, held at Madrid's Railway Museum. In 1986 she participated in her first collective fashion show in France, and also began to design a range of accessories including espadrilles and tights.
