Cosentino Group took part once again in the world of fashion and haute couture, this time with its latest Dekton XGloss collection of ultra-compact surfaces. The five colours of this new series created a catwalk at the 2016 Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Madrid for the Barcelona firm Ailanto to show its collection for this coming Autumn/Winter.
This 96 m² design, which was 30m long and 3.2m wide, was created from a mosaic of pieces in the colours Halo, Splendor, Lumina, Blaze and Spectra, and resulted in a unique catwalk.
For the Solid XGloss collection Cosentino Group´s R&D department spent almost two years developing a pioneering and revolutionary treatment based on a nanotechnology called the „Nanocoating Process”. This allows glossiness, radiance, bright solid colours and high levels of durability.
Thanks to this new partnership, Cosentino strengthens its links to the world of fashion. In 2010, with a catwalk made from Silestone, the company also took part in the Pasarela Cibeles, on that occasion with the Madrid designer Juan Duyos whose inspiration for his „Colorama” collection came from the Life series of this global leader’s brand of quartz surfaces.
Other unique actions have been the collaboration in 2011 with the most prestigious modelling competition in the sector, the „Elite Model Look”, and the annual „The New Generation by Francina” competition where this modelling agency chooses the new and promising new faces of fashion.
