Barcelona Export participates at the meeting of Teixidores d’Idees, a meeting aimed to entrepreneurs or directors women of the Maresme region, organized by the Fagem at the hotel Atenea de Mataró on Thursday 11/23/2017.

What did we discover during this day?

During the session, we attended the presentation of Toton Comella, the highest representative of intimate women’s fashion in Spain. A woman that knows how to revolutionize the world of swimwear and feminine intimate clothing by incorporating combinations of textiles that until now no one had dared to work with: lycra-cotton. She changed the intimate fashion patterns, creating a powerful international brand of recognized prestige as it has been with TCN. These fabrics are today fully integrated into our everyday uses.

After having sold the company and having been director and owner of her company during her whole professional career, she offers us a series of discussions about the woman role in the business life and the price they have to pay to hold responsibilities as well in the professional life as in the private life and about how hard it is to combine both to find the right balance.

This type of meeting promotes women’s networking, besides putting in common the issues that professional women face in today’s society:

  • Work-life balance
  • Sexual harassment
  • Discrimination for gender reasons
  • Lack of equal pay for the same tasks
  • Same education, etc.
