Replace his father’s ethnicity with Catalan. Fernando’s maternal family name is Bertrán. His Catalan name is Ferran Casablancas i Bertran. He was the son of Fernando Casablancas Planell (or Ferran Casablancas i Planell in Catalan) Josefa Bertrán Oliú (or Josepa Bertran i Oliu in Catalan). Correct that Fernando Casablancas Bertrán was not a textile businessman. It was his own father’s occupation.

Correct his paternal grandmother’s name to Antonia Ubach (or Antònia Ubach in Catalan), who was from Palma, Majorca.

His paternal grandmother was named Antonia. I don’t know Antonia’s maiden name, but she was a model for Balenciaga.
