Born in Sabadell, Spain, in 1947, Antonio Miró began his career at a young age, opening his first store, Groc, on Barcelona’s Rambla Catalunya when he was only twenty years old. His remarkable success led him to launch his own fashion brand in 1979, presenting collections on international catwalks in fashion capitals such as Paris, Milan, and New York.

A significant milestone in his illustrious career was when he was appointed as the official designer for the outfits worn during the ceremonies of the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. During the 1990s, Antonio Miró collaborated with prestigious fashion brands like Ermenegildo Zegna, expanding his creative projects beyond clothing. His brand diversified its product offerings, including jewelry, accessories, perfumes, and even furniture, showcasing his versatile design talents.

Throughout his career, Antonio Miró also made significant contributions to costume design for theater, film, and television productions. His notable works include designing costumes for productions such as «Carta al padre,» «La muerte del escorpión,» «Ultimas tardes con Teresa,» «Tatuaje,» and «El largo invierno.»

Antonio Miró received numerous awards and recognitions during his illustrious career, including the prestigious Cristóbal Balenciaga prize for «best Spanish designer» in 1988 and the FAD medal for his outstanding professional career in 2000. His impact on the fashion industry was further acknowledged with the «Antoni Gaudí, Moda Barcelona» Medal, awarded by the Gaudí Fashion Show in 2003.

Despite temporarily stepping away from the fashion industry to focus on interior design, Antonio Miró’s brand remained active under the creative direction of Albert Villagrasa. This allowed the brand to continue presenting collections at renowned fashion events, including the 080 Barcelona Fashion event.

The passing of Antonio Miró marks the loss of a visionary designer whose creativity, innovation, and versatile design career have left an indelible mark on the fashion and design world. His contributions will continue to inspire future generations of designers and artists.
