The Master Matador Tailor
If you find yourself in the direct path of a charging 1,300-pound-bull, you had better be well dressed. That’s Antonio Lopez Fuentes’ philosophy. The Madrid-based tailor and owner of the Fermin Tailor Shop creates custom suits, or “trajes de luces” (literally “dresses of light”) for matadors. Fuentes’ is a family business that boasts 55 years of expertise in fashioning the finest handmade matador costumes. As you can imagine, each suit requires months of preparation, loads of material and no small amount of hard work. It’s a tough job, but only the finest will do for the brave few in this death-defying profession.
