What is Rec.0?
Rec.0 is the eclectic festival of fashion, culture and gastronomy that is held twice a year, and for only four days, in the Rec district of Igualada.
The old factories and tanneries of the old industrial district of the city are temporarily transformed into fashion pop-up stores where major local and international brands and independent and emerging fashion designers sell their stocks and samplers at unique prices.
Each edition of Rec.0 is different. New spaces are opened, many of them unknown, and new brands are also incorporated, so that an essentially changing circuit is configured. A visit to Rec.0 is a good opportunity to find discounted garments from prestigious brands or learn about new proposals that are revolutionizing the world of fashion in a metamorphic setting. After the four days of Rec.0, the neighborhood returns to normal, with an activity that mixes the leather industry with design studios and other professions.
But Rec.0 is much more than fashion. Cuina de carrer, is the street gastronomy festival that in each edition, gives flavor with hundreds of proposals and with more than 40 food trucks and pop-up bars. Culture and, especially, music, also have their space with a careful and constant program of concerts with local and national artists, of diverse and contemporary styles, distributed in different spaces of the Rec.0 circuit.
Rec.0 was born in November 2009 by a group of six people committed to the Rec neighborhood, who wanted to make it known to as many people as possible and link it with the creativity of the fashion world. After several editions, Rec.0 has become a benchmark fashion, heritage and culture event in Catalonia that is organized twice a year.
