Dress and the Importance of Red
Traditional flamenco dresses (above picture) are typically fitted at the top, and filled out at the bottom. Multiple layers of brightly-colored ruffles are common. These dresses come from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and is credited to Spanish gypsies and Andalusian culture. Within flamenco, while other colors are used, the color red can represent strength, vitality, and passion.
