The Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2002 Show, « The Dance of the Twisted Bull » (« El baile del toro retorcido »), referenced Spain’s traditional bullfighting.

Some Spain-inspired collections : Balenciaga (Cristóbal Balenciaga referenced Spain in some of his designs ; this influence was highlighted in the « Balenciaga : Spanish Master » exhibition, presented at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute, in New York, from November 19, 2010 to February 19, 2011, which was an Oscar de la Renta’s initiative, curated by Hamish Bowles), Christian Lacroix Couture Spring/Summer 1985, Christian Lacroix Couture Autumn/Winter 2003-2004 (influenced by the Flemish at Charles V’s court), Christian Lacroix Couture Spring/Summer 2006 (especially for the matador pieces and the infant dress), Dior Couture Autumn/Winter 2007-2008 (in part, particularly for dresses inspired by El Greco and Diego Velázquez), Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Autumn/Winter 2001-2002 (collection based on Spain and China), Missoni Spring/Summer 2012 (in part), Moschino Spring/Summer 2012 (some pieces echoed Franco Moschino’s matador outfit, dubbed « Bull Chic »), Oscar de la Renta (since the ’60s, the couturier has often been influenced by Spain’s heritage), Paco Rabanne Couture Autumn/Winter 1996-1997, Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2013 (the matador outfits, fringes, hats and ruffles reference Spain), Yves Saint Laurent Couture Spring/Summer 1977 (the Spain of Diego Velázquez), Yves Saint Laurent Couture Autumn/Winter 1995-1996 (infant dresses), Yves Saint Laurent by Stefano Pilati Spring/Summer 2006 (partly, especially for the boleros and the torero pants).
