Who is Candela Solo Flamenco?... A little
bit of history
My name is Pilar Trueba and since I was a child, I have inherited the passion for fashion and
flamenco that my mother passed on to me. This led me to study as a stylist, designer and
pattern designer in the city where I was born, Seville. My adventure began in 1995, when I
participated as a new designer in the first International Flamenco Fashion Show (SIMOF). Since
then, I have not stopped doing flamenco: first in my shop in Harinas Street in Seville and
currently in El Puerto de Santa Maria, Cadiz.
Together with my friend Carmen Bellido we created Candela Solo Flamenco in 1999. Our idea
was to renew the image of flamenco students, as at that time everything was red, white and
black. There was not any kind of designing, variety and colors in the rehearsal clothes.
In 2003, I had the opportunity to participate in the Yokohama Fashion Week in Japan, with a
colorful flamenco rehearsal collection with innovative designs. The acceptance was so good
that since then Japan has become a very important selling point for our company and clearly
opened the doors to international trade.
Since then, I have not stopped producing different lines of work, rehearsal outfit, outfits for
last year’s academies performances, special costumes for companies and artists, and during
the Feria season, flamenco dresses were a must.
