Dolores Cortés is the successor of a family tradition of more than seventy years in the manufacture and design of women’s swimwear, dating back to a time before the existence of current elastic fabrics.
Picking up this tradition, Dolores Font Cortés, began in the 80s to design swimwear collections. She produces her models in her own workshop, adopting the name Dolores Cortés as the signature of her designs, in homage to her mother. This experimental vision is evident in the firm’s swimsuits, whose origins date back to the 1950s, when the designer’s mother, Dolores Cortés, designed and created these pieces by hand.
Thus begins a new stage for the designer, with the aim of assimilating fashion thinking to the technical requirements of the product, creating and designing innovative collections in which the swimsuit is a trend product.
In this new collection presented in pavilion 14 of Ifema within the framework of Madrid Fashion Week, the juxtaposition of graphics and abstract motifs stands out. The designer has presented this new swimwear collection with prints conceived as pictorial fabrics or textile paintings in their most luminous version, as opposed to the mixtures between black and white and the play of shades of warm and cold tones, establishing a rich and varied colorimetry.
The term swim couture is present in the crochet details that adorn many pieces, which achieve a renewed aesthetic. In addition, the accessories (large bracelets and earrings) designed in resin, are colorful and complete the swimwear look, impregnated with a boho aesthetic through the printed scarves that adorn the hair of the models.

Today, Dolores Cortés’s designs are present in the national and international market through warehouses and her own stores. In 2017, the company Dolores Font Cortés S.A was awarded the National Award for Small and Medium Enterprises in the Fashion Industry, given by Queen Letizia of Spain.
