Behind-the-Scenes at the MANGO Headquarters in Spain

Today I toured the MANGO headquarters in Barcelona, Spain - surprise! Aside from the fact that I'm exhausted and totally jet lagged, I am so excited and happy to finally be here in beautiful Barcelona - the final stop of my MNG by MANGO Mission - along with 9 other fabulous bloggers and the winner of the ELLE Sweepstakes. It all kinda feels like a dream. Ya know what else must be a dream? Working for MANGO! Today we toured their enviable headquarters where over 2,000 employees work to design all the looks you see in Mango stores and MNG by MANGO in-store boutiques at JCPenney (yes, MNG is designed exclusively for JCPenney right here in Spain and it's all authentic MANGO).

We couldn't take photos in all parts of the sprawling, state-of-the-art building but I'll have more photos from our official photographers soon. The MANGO hq boasts a large rotating art collection that adorn the well-lit walls. Employees work in what seems like perfect harmony at long, communal desks. In one space, we saw where patterns are made; in another, where samples are constructed and fine-tuned; in yet another, a library of books and fashion mags for inspiration. It was a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse at a global fast-fashion chain that I won't soon forget.

Just a little housekeeping note: Please bear with me while I'm traveling, I'll do my best to post updates whenever possible. Oh and I probably won't get to check Twitter very often, if at all. Thanks! xoBB
