The ‘Flamenco’ dress is a Spanish inspired evening gown made with a fitted dress under a full tulle fishtail top layer. The design features a dramatic low back and full sleeve in a shear black body net and complemented with satin covered buttons and a stunning gold embroidered lace on the neckline and hem. The gold metallic belt finishes the look giving the dress a modern couture touch.
The traje de flamenca (“flamenco outfit”) is the dress traditionally worn by women at traditional Spanish festivals. There are two forms: one worn by dancers and the other worn as a day dress. The day dress is body-hugging to mid-thigh, and then continues in multiple layers of ruffles to the ankle. The dancers’ version flares out from higher on the hip to allow freedom of movement.
The ‘Flamenco’ dress in this collection is fitted over the body like the traditional dancers dress but instead of ruffles, the skirt features the beautiful bold gold lace edging, reflecting the dramatic style of this type of dance. The traditional dresses worn by the Spanish dancers always feature bold patterns, normally polka dots, however more modern versions feature lace and flowers.
