Printed silk and polyester wadding dress from the collection "Chic chèque choc" presented at a fashion show during Madrid's fashion week on September 1986. "A woman must have three men, always. Un marquis pour le chic, un banquier pour le chèque et un gigolo pour le choc. The first purpose of the collection was to have the three well-differentiated ingredients. The silks are the chic; the inventions, the prototypes, the toiles with different materials, not to sell or wear, the cubes, Marcel Duchamp... are the choc; and the more comercial dresses made by cotton to sell by the millions, those are the chèque. They all mix up together by themselves."
