Arturo Obegero was born to a bohemian family of surfers in Tapia De Casariego, Asturias, a fishing village in northern Spain.
He spent his childhood in the “melancholic and poetic town” surrounded by nature, which both inspired him and awoke his dreams of escapism. His mother encouraged him to pursue the performing arts, which further nurtured his sensibility.
Obegero rigorously acquired skills, including pattern-cutting, before enrolling in the prestigious MA programme at Central Saint Martins, London, where he developed his creative narrative.
Stimulated by the world of the performing arts, the surrealist and neo-noir movements and Spanish culture, Arturo Obegero creates a romantic, seductive and sophisticated wardrobe for men and women.
Arturo Obegero launched AO in March 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic and presented his first collection on the official Paris Fashion Week calendar in January 2021.
