After graduating, she thought of a professional path that would allow her to exploit her two passions: form an concept. She made several graphic exhibitions but at the end decided to get involved in the fashion world.

All her collections intend to transmit an intellectual concept and to achieve this, she is constantly searching for inspiration in art, literature, music and cinema, with references to Duchamp, Faulkner, Kafka, Dostoievski, Bergman, … Complementing it with fashion, Txell Miras develops an intense activity in graphic art, installations and short films where she reflects her subtly unnerving and enigmatic language.
