The traje de flamenca is the dress traditionally worn by women at Ferias (festivals) in Andalusia, Spain. This traditional women‘s costume has undergone changes over the century or more that it has been in widespread use. The skirts became shorter and after few years dropped back to the ankle again. Patterns and colors of materials are constantly changing During traditional festivities, women wearing these dresses still inspire a number of works of art. When I was asking these women in portraits in the Spring Fair, why they adore to dress in these dresses- all as one said, that traje de falmenca is very beautiful, their mothers and grandmothers were dressing like this long time ago, and the traditions of Andalusia are wonderful and it’s a matter of honor to keep and protect them.
