“Made for Spain was founded by Madrid native Virginia Irurita, a former event planner, who uses her connections with Spain’s socialites to arrange style-driven excursions. Among the highlights: tours of Madrid’s boutiques led by designer Lorenzo Caprile and walks through the city’s hidden antiques stores with Mercedes Urquijo, a Spanish aristocrat with her own furniture shop.”
“In Spain, as in the rest of the world, it helps to have friends in the right places. That’s what Madrid-based Made for Spain has to offer.”
