70 ANNIVERSARY OF MENKES. 70 YEARS SHARING HISTORY
2020 has been a year full of news that has changed the world and the way we relate to our families, friends or coworkers. A year in which we have had to live as the pandemic caused by COVID-19 forced us all to stay in our homes, and made many historic businesses have to close their doors.
All the people who dedicate ourselves to the world of the show have seen how the concerts were ending, the shows of dance, flamenco or theatrical performances, and for many months we have had to fight, and we continue to do so, against the difficulties that this generalized stoppage has caused.
But even so, 2020 has been the year in which we have celebrated our 70th anniversary. 70 years dressing universal artists of the stature of Ava Gardner, Vivien Leigh, Joaquín Cortés or Michael Douglas, but also alongside many other companies and people who have trusted Menkes for their wardrobe: dance schools, rhythmic gymnastics teams, theme parks or organizing entities in charge of organize parades and parades of floats.
And of course, it has been 70 years watching how children and adults enjoyed dressing up every year for Carnival or Halloween, visiting our stores to choose that costume as a superhero, a warrior or a prince and princess for that special day.
Walt Disney used to say that dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them, and for 70 years at Menkes we have had a dream; continue to seek perfection through artisan work with the same passion that our founder and patriarch, Marcos Menkes, started his in 1950, and that has taken us to cities such as New York, Moscow or around the world
And if we can proudly say that we have come this far, it is thanks to all those people who have supported us during these 7 decades, and who have trusted Menkes to buy or rent your suits and costumes.
To all of you, we can only dedicate words of thanks and say thank you very much for being by our side. We toast for many more years together.
