Beginning in its glitzy flagship store in Ibiza to its current headquarters in Barcelona, the company has become an empire with 300 colorful, light-filled boutiques in 72 countries throughout the globe, with a multicultural workforce of more than 2,900 enthusiastic clothing experts. Each store’s labyrinth of styles includes printed tees, sharp men’s jackets, flattering dresses, hoodies, and inventive kids’ wear.
Flashy belts, handbags, jewelry, and wallets top off ensembles, complementing clothing from lines such as Cirque du Soleil and Desigual by L. In addition to innovating examples of quirky, trendsetting clothing, Desigual shows off its youthful vibrancy through atypical marketing campaigns built around artwork, live music, parties, and online solitaire matches.

The Women's International Film & Arts Festival is a nonprofit organization that features the work of talented females each year during women's history month. With women representing only 7% of film directors, this creative collaboration exposes unheard artists by showing 50 films over the course of five days. Pull at your heartstrings by attaching a puppeteer to your body or by catching Forget Me Not, a modern-day love story about a free-spirited woman and a passionate musician with a tragic secret. The gripping tale of In The Name of Freedom, by Isabel Cueva, chronicles the tale of an American soldier in captivity who's life changes forever after meeting another prisoner. This women-centric film festival is sure to send visitors on an artistic rollycoaster that's infinitely preferable to the abstract rollycoasters featured at avant-garde amusement parks, which are mostly just picnic tables.
