MADRID - Agatha Ruiz de la Prada opened Madrid fashion week Monday by taking a swipe at the rivalry between the capital and Barcelona.

One of Spain's top designers, Ruiz de la Prada said the rivalry between the cities had harmed her fortunes in the past.

At one time the Madrid association of professional designers prevented her from displaying her wares.

She arrives in the capital to present her woman's collection having just presented her fourth men's collection in Barcelona.

Madrid Fashion Week is considered the more important show in Spain, though the organisers of the Barcelona show claim to the contrary.
