SIMOF 2010 Begins! New Designer’s Contest, the designers to come

corte de cintaThe XVI edition of the International Flamenco Fashion Salon began strongly today with proof that there is a lot of flamenco fashion, that it’s of interest and that despite the economic crisis, it mobilizes a growing number of consumers in search of new fashion, trends and ideas for what to wear at Spain’s next ferias... that flamenco fashion definitely sells. As in years past, SIMOF was inaugurated by the new designers, 9 promising young designers that presented their imaginative and daring collections.
The competition began with the designs of the Sevillana, Lourdes Bermejo, who presented a conceptual collection based on the relationship between the evocative power of the polka dot in flamenco fashion and that of the moon as a symbol. Deconstructed garments, ample and even 80’s shapes, open backs and a curious study of ruffles for an unconventional collection.

Following the classical lines of flamenco dress was the collection by Ana Vidal, from Lebrija, who demonstrated excellent dressmaking work and sensationalism with a collection full of color and references to the Muslim world. Her ruffles and patchwork are of note.

Antonio Jiménez’s line brought back the technique of fabric dying. His work, done on natural dark linen, was a success; especially the ruffled dresses with fading colors over a beige background, with a classical design and a bohemian tie die finish on his more modern pieces.

El colorido fue también protagonista y leit motiv de la colección de Vidal Carballo. Los colores... y el fútbol, ya que los tonos protagonistas de la colección rendían homenaje a los clubes de balompié de las 8 provincias andaluzas: rojo, blanco, verde, amarillo, turquesa, añil, pistacho, cardenal y naranja, tonos alegres sobre popelín satinado y, esta vez sí, cortes muy clásicos, mangas largas y estrechas y volantes al hilo fruncidos de gran volumen.
Para efectistas, los diseños de Labajo Yuste. Flamenco y África Negra materializados en una colección mestiza y exótica llena de escotes y espaldas de vértigo, siluetas sirena y guiños a la tradición tribal africana en los detalles de estilo, como los cuellos redondos que interpretan la orfebrería masai, o la elección de los típicos tejidos estampados de algodón tradicionales de la zona en convivencia con popelines y raso. Imaginativo trabajo en los volantes, al bies y al hilo, dispuestos en vertical.
Rafael Valverde se alineó con las propuestas más originales de la jornada con un bonito trabajo de fusión entre la moda urbana de los 70 y el traje de flamenca: camisas anchas, grandes escotes, camisetas de diseño propio... Muy buen trabajo de estilismo, para tomar nota: nuevos materiales para pendientes, pulseras y flores, texturas de espejo y formas exuberantes
El jurado tenía ante sí el reto de premiar únicamente dos colecciones, con sendos premios de 5000 y 1000 euros respectivamente. Y el gato al agua se lo llevó el almeriense Antonio Egea, con una colección hiperfemenina y juvenil muy favorecedora en clave de blanco, negro y rojo llena de cortes originales, asimetrías y aires de elegancia clásica que dejan entrever la versatilidad del diseñador.
Muy destacable, y también premiado, el trabajo de Daniel Lora, de líneas clásicas y sin estridencias, una lección de discreción y buena costura de aires retro, ajustadas cinturas y gran profusión de volantes. 
Estos son los diseñadores que vienen... para quedarse.

Color and the leit motif were the protagonists of Vidal Carballo’s collection. The colors... and football (soccer), as the colors paid homage to the footie clubs in the 8 Andalucian provinces: red, white, green, yellow, turquoise, indigo, pistachio and orange, joyful colors on satin poplin and classic cuts, long, narrow sleeves and voluminous ruffles. Labajo Yuste’s designs attract the sensationalist. Flamenco and Africa materialize in an exotic collection full of plunging necklines and backs, with nods to the African tribal tradition, such as round necklines of the Masai, and the choice of traditional patterned cotton cloth, along with poplins and satin. Imaginative work with ruffles.

Rafael Valverde presented the most original line, with a pretty fusion of urban 70’s and the typical flamenco dress: baggy shirts, low necklines, T-shirts of his own design... An excellent and noteworthy stylistic presentation: new materials for earrings, bracelets and flowers, mirror textures and exuberant shapes.

 

Antonio Egea
The jury had the very hard task of awarding only two collections with a 5000 and 1000 euro prize respectively. First prize went to the designer from Almeria, Antonio Egea, with a hyper feminine and youthful collection, with a white, black and red color scheme, full of original cuts, a-symmetries and classical elegance that demonstrated the designer’s versatility.

The second prize winner, Daniel Lora’s collection was made up of classic lines without stridency, a lesson in discretion and good retro needlework, tight waistlines and lots of ruffles.
