The Civil War forced a temporary hiatus in the development of fashion in Spain. The solid careers of two important figures – Cristóbal Balenciaga and Pedro Rodríguez – paved the way for other workshops of unquestionable quality. Although fashion got off to a slow start, the creation in 1940 of the Cooperativa de la Alta Costura (“Haute Couture Cooperative”), founded by Pedro Rodríguez and chaired by the designer at the request of his colleagues until his death, was one of the great initiatives that helped launch a refined, high-quality couture. In Barcelona the Cooperative brought together Pedro Rodríguez, El Dique Flotante, Santa Eulalia, Asunción Bastida and Pertegaz, the “big five of fashion” as they were called in the magazines of the time.
