PERTEGAZ made his first trip to the US in 1953, presenting his collection in New York, Boston, Atlanta and Philadelphia. In the sixties he started his adventure with VOGUE PATTERNS. In his designs for VOGUE you can appreciate the unmistakable modern and refined style of the designer, and the unbeatable craftsmanship typical of mid-century Spanish couture houses.
