One of the highlights was a dress featuring a fitted bodice with a scoop neckline, emphasizing a structured and elegant silhouette. The skirt of the dress transitions into layers of intricate ruffles, reminiscent of the ruffles seen in traditional Spanish flamenco dresses. The ruffles clearly draw inspiration from the dramatic and expressive nature of tango and flamenco dance costumes, which are known for their voluminous and flowing designs.
