In short, two years may seem like a lot, but when writing about something you like, as is everything related to the world of Flamenco fashion, time flies by. Therefore, today we invite you to remember some of the best posts dedicated to flamenco dresses and accessories, do you feel like joining us?
The origins of Flemish fashion
To start at the beginning, we should mention the first post that, as it could not be otherwise, was dedicated to the origins of flamenco dress and, in it referred to the typical costumes that women wore the cattle fairs and that, thanks to their skirts with ruffles, looked very good when the Andalusians danced flamenco.
Flamenco dresses: trends
From those humble origins of the flamenco dress and its accessories, was born a suit that became the regional costume of Andalusia. However, it has a unique feature that no other Spanish regional costume has: it adapts to new trends. Therefore, in the blog we have made many references to the SIMOF catwalk, where the news of each season in flamenco fashion are shown.
Flamenco and gypsy dress are closely linked, although if there is a place where flamenco fashion can be seen in all its fullness, that is the Seville Fair, the best known of the Andalusian fairs. How to choose the perfect dress, the mistakes to avoid with flamenco dresses for fairs and, definitely, to give tips to choose the perfect flamenco dress.
Although it is true that the flamenco dress adapts to new trends, prints, colors, or fabrics, there is always classic that is infallible to wear in an Andalusian celebration: canastero dress, ideal for both fairs, as for pilgrimage and that, of course, can be customized with seasonal trends in flamenco fashion.
Flamenco: a worldwide artistic expression
Beyond being an Andalusian regional costume, flamenco dress is also related to flamenco dancing, which arouses interest throughout the world. We have dedicated several posts to flamenco, in fact, we have the basics of flamenco dance, music, hand movements and much more …
And it would be difficult to think of flamenco dancing without a good gypsy dress that accompanies the dancer !
