All about the history of Fashion and Moda Adlib of Ibiza

As characteristic for Ibiza as her white-washed fincas, is today's distinctive style of clothing by her multi-cultural inhabitants.
On the beautiful White island, temperatures rise high in Summer and people try to feel the smallest breeze, wearing as little as permissible.
Already in the 30s some of the most wealthy and elegant people in the world, the then jet set and trendsetters, spent their mega-yacht holidays, in the marina of Ibiza Town, bringing elegance and sophistication to the still undiscovered Mediterranean island.

It was like that the in the late 50s and early 60s, when the first artists, freethinkers and hippies arrived on an island, rich in nature and culture, with a population poor in wealth.
In contradiction to the back-to-love-and-nature lifestyle of the hippies with a clothing style that left nothing to the imagination, the authentic islanders 'payesa' were covered in simple handmade, peasant clothes of coarse fabrics. Their cloths came from their own hands, similar to the accessories that belonged to their general attire, such as espadrilles, straw hats, bags and shawls.
Although it took a while before the native inhabitants got used to their hippy neighbours, it was their common, unceasing preference for a simple lifestyle and creativity that united them.
Back than, many of the Ibicenco women 'pagesas' were mainly dressed in black, while the dresses and skirts of the new islanders were short  and non concealing, and in all colours of the rainbow.

The first hippy market of Ibiza was born in the fifties and both locals and hippies started creating a fusion of the indigenous 'Ibicenco' clothing style with characteristic hippy aesthetics, that would result in the birth of the ADLIB fashion in the early 70s.

Hippy icon Mora Schroeder influenced Ibiza fashion with remarkable crochet designs
Back in those days it were individuals such as the colourful, former club owner, Mora Schröder, who came to Ibiza in 1965, to live with the hippies, while introducing Ibiza to her fantasy look of crochet dresses. Mora and Djin, her husband, whom she met in Ibiza, both had a distinctive appearance, and together with their hippy tribe they were much sought after guests at any party on the island, because of their outspokenly controversial garb and artsy performances.
Mora's innovatory urge made her decide to design and create her own outfits from there on, and over the years her characteristic crochet designs not only very much influenced and inspired the nascent fashion of Ibiza, but the rest of the world was also admiring her hippie apparel and eye catching designs. Although tried many times over the years, Mora could not be persuaded to commercialize her 'small' fashion business.
Until today this remarkable Hippy Icon enjoys a simple lifestyle and is happily selling her colourful, hand crafted crochet fashion on the Hippy market Las Dalias on Saturdays.
LA MODA ADLIB IBIZA > Adlib Fashion Ibiza was founded in 1971

LA MODA ADLIB IBIZA
Adlib
, from Latin 'Ad Libitum', translation 'freely',
meaning "Dress as you like, but with style"

From 27 to 31 May 1971 the first Pasarela de Moda Adlib or Adlib Fashion Show took place at the Portal Nou in Ibiza, and it was in 1972, when the unconventional and liberated Yugoslavian jet set princess Smilja Mihailovitch, brought international recognition to the Adlib fashion style by posing barefoot with flowers in her hair, wearing the innovatory, ethereal white garments from Ibiza that expressed both simplicity and craftsmanship, but more strikingly, they highlighted each body shape's natural beauty.

It was Smilja, she affectionately referred to Adlib as 'the freedom’s fashion', who convinced the local politicians to financially support this new industry bringing economic prosperity for the islanders. As a result the foundation of the Patronat de la Moda d'Eivissa i Formentera was implemented.And it was Princess Smilja, who in 1975 inspired renowned Vogue fashion magazine to come to Ibiza with famous actress Ursula Andress to report on Adlib and  in 1976 French brands Dior and Yves Saint Laurent embraced the Adlib feel.
Moda Adlib
turned out to be the answer to an overwrought international fashion industry, presenting a timeless 'Ibiza style' fashion with respect for the body and its convenience and emphasizing the island's bohemian and cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Showcasing a preference for white, light and natural fabrics while expressing individuality with lavish embroidery, crochet, lace and adornments, Moda Adlib was settled in the world-of fashion and became one of Ibiza's main tourists attractions and industries.

The Paserela de Moda Adlib started off small, with fashion designers from day one: Maru García (close friend of Smilja), Luis Ferrer, Marta Raffo and jet set fashion designer Dora Herbst.
Over the years the Adlib catwalk saw the creations of fashion designers and labels, such as: Ishvara, Triana, Gloria Bendita, Elena Deudero, Cáñamo, De Bois, Melania Piris, Claudie Noëll, Zarabanda, Ibimoda, Francisca Ferrer, Moleke and Charo Ruiz united in their fashion label AdLibitum, Perlotti & Giannini, Eva Cardona, Lopeta, Tres Ibiza and MapaMundi.
Later additions to Adlib Fashion Ibiza were: Beatrice San Francisco; Dira Moda Ibiza; Isabel Castellar; Ivanna Mestres; Jannine Helbling; Piluca Bayarri; Tanit Jeans; Tony Bonet; Elisa Pomar and l’ Escola d’Art.

Each year an exceptional model casting takes place for this fashion event, Adlib also achieved collaboration with other important fashion events, and there is the Balearic Young Designers Contest to support the work of promising fashion creators living and working on the island.
And of course Ibiza, island wide, has the most wonderful locations that form the perfect backdrop for each photo shoot.
