In Seville, you’ll discover an extensive network of stores where you can buy costumes and accessories linked to the world of flamenco, made with the same care and dedication as they were centuries ago.
Did you know that the flamenco dress is the only regional clothing that evolves according to fashion? It is, so to speak, a folk costume that doesn’t renounce glamor, and every year is renewed with the contributions of excellent designers from the flamenco fashion industry. The combination, you’ll see, is absolutely irresistible.
Many people come from all over the world to acquire these costumes and wear them at traditional parties or on special occasions. The general opinion is that the flamenco dress, with its sophistication, visibility, and silhouette, shines like few other dresses can.
The accessories, made to enhance the dress, also have these qualities: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches, shawls, shoes, flowers, combs, etc.
Every year at the beginning of February, Seville celebrates the SIMOF International Flamenco Fashion Show at FIBES, a flamenco design industry event that attracts the attention of the whole country.

The shawls are a widely used garment in Seville at special events. We see them not only at the Feria or in the Maestranza, but also at many other social events.

And, finally, marvel at all the accessories that will highlight your flamenco look: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches, shawls, shoes, flowers or combs.
