Mango has celebrated International Women’s Day with a great dinner to present its alliance with Save the Children, with whom she will work to promote education and sports among children and women in Bangladesh. Alexia Putellas, Mango ambassador and best soccer player in the world, as well as a benchmark in the fight for equality, is also the ambassador of this project.
The footballer has also co-designed a solidarity shirt with the brand with the message Girls should play with dolls whatever they want to, which went on sale this week in selected stores in Spain, Portugal, France, Turkey and the United States, and through its Mango.com website in more than 80 markets around the world. The benefits derived from its sale will go entirely to Save the Children for the future development of the project.
The dinner, held in Madrid, was attended by the ambassador, Alexia Putellas, who was accompanied by members of the Mango community such as Gala González, Sofía Sánchez de Betak, Sofia Moser, Gemma Galán, Nuria Val, Clara Sans, Pol monenMiguel Carrizo and Marc Forne.
The event took place at the Fernando de Castro Foundation, a place full of meaning. This foundation, located in a 19th century mansion, includes the initiatives of Fernando de Castro himself, who in 1870 founded the Association for the Education of Women, which provided formal and practical education to many women.
Mango guests were also able to enjoy the exhibition of the German-born Brazilian artist Eleonore Koch (1926-2018) at the Foundation, whose sensory work evokes the memory of everyday objects by exploring the tension between planes of color and lines. The exhibition is organized by Galería Travesía Cuatro, a gallery also led by two women: Inés López-Quesada and Silvia Ortiz.
Dinner was provided by Ver Aguas, a gastronomic project created by two women who felt the need to renew their gaze towards the plant world and their intelligence to transform it into social food. Laura and Andrea created Ver Aguas to dedicate themselves to approaching, sharing and re-educating through gastronomy. They do it with passion, influenced by different artistic trends and always oriented towards the organic, natural and pure that surrounds them.
And joining the group of women who shaped the event, the singer and songwriter from Cádiz, Judeline, offered the guests an intimate concert. The very young singer has become one of the most interesting emerging voices on the national music scene with a deeply personal style.
