Typical Spanish dresses

Flamenca Dress - Andalucía
The flamenca dress originated between the late 19th and early 20th century when gypsy women vendors, dressed in modest gowns adorned with ruffles, came to the fairs along with livestock traders. The wealthy women of the time started to imitate these outfits.
Generally thought the typical Spanish dress, it really represents more Andalusia and it is particularly associated with Andalusian festivals such as the Seville Fair. Every region of Spain has its own traditional dress; the most lavish and richly embelished is, in my opinion, the fallera outfit from Valencia.

El traje de flamenca nace a finales del siglo 19 y  principios del 20 cuando las mujeres gitanas se vestian con trajes adornados de volantes para acudir a las ferias de ganado. Las mujeres acaudaladas de la época comenzaron a imitarlas.
Se considera el traje típico español cuando en realidad representa más a la estética andaluza y se asocia con festividades y ferias, sobre todo La feria de Sevilla.
Cada región española tiene su propio traje; el más lujoso rico en bordados y adornos, en mi opinión, es sin duda el traje de fallera valenciana.

  5. I have had a crush on this traditional costume since I was a child and dressed up in a black and red flamenco dress. Ahaha today I disabled the word verification, I had to enable it for a while because I was getting some very nasty comments! I don't like it either, now it's off!

  15. Los trajes de volantes me encantan, igual que Ava Gardner que siempre me ha parecido guapísima. El traje de fallera es divino, pero el de huertana de Murcia no tiene nada que envidiarle. Besos.
