Marqués de Cáceres has been sponsoring the Salón Internacional de la Moda Flamenca SIMOF (international fair for Flamenco fashion) since 2012, combining the expertise, tradition, design and singularity shared by wine and haute couture flamenco fashion.
For this partnership, the Bodega launched a premium limited edition wine, MC, that every year shows a new design, specially created for the event, reflecting the latest tendencies in Flamenco fashion.
A committee of experts evaluates the proposals put forward by the Flamenco fashion designers who participate in SIMOF and chooses the name that will appear on the special edition of MC. This committee includes exhibitors, some of the event organisers and reputed designers including Virginia Vargas who puts the design to paper to finalise the label. Cristina Forner, President of Marqués de Cáceres supervises the selection process.
For SIMOF 2018, Loli Vera’s design has been selected for MC Limited Edition 2015. Born in Puebla de los Infantes, Seville, Loli’s passion for dressmaking awoke at the early age of 11 and she now has her own company, backed by a solid professional career during which her creative instinct has produced innovative designs. Present at the SIMOF catwalk for more than a decade, Loli comments as follows: “My designs are classic in style and I can identify the elements that make this one so special. The fringes, the lace and especially the polka dots have been missing in my creations for many years and I brought them back eye-catchingly at last year’s edition of Simof.”
