" Entrepreneur. As the head of the family-run company Loewe since the 1980s, he is one of the most famous Spanish fashion entrepreneurs."

Born in Madrid in 1941, he is the great-grandson of the founder of the luxury goods company Loewe. His great-grandfather, Enrique Loewe Roessberg, a German artisan, came to Madrid in 1846 and became associated with renowned Madrid oil companies. That was the beginning of a prosperous company specialised in luxury items. Enrique Loewe began to work in the family company around the end of the 1960s, when Loewe already enjoyed great international prestige. He played an important role in the national and international expansion of the company during the 1970s, particularly in the Asian market, where the company has an excellent reputation. Loewe has belonged to the French group LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) since 1996. In 1999 he was named spokesman and honorary president of the of the Spanish Fashion Creators' Association.
