Pilar Vera is a pioneer designer within the flamenco fashion sector, an unique product closely linked to Andalusian folklore. The flamenco dress is the official regional garment in Andalusia and the only one in the world evolving over time. This attire is frequently used by women to attend Andalusian regional celebrations as Seville April’s Fair.
Pilar Vera was one of the first designers who decided to give a twist to the flamenco dress. She made this evolution happen by imposing trends and a personal style to this special garment. Now her creations are known worldwide by taking part in main flamenco events and performances.
For over 30 years of experience and devoted work Pilar Vera has been researching the strong Spanish textile tradition and innovating shapes and styles to make a fashionable flamenco dress without losing sight of its identity.
In 1989 the Spanish representative in the Miss World contest chose Pilar Vera as her official designer. During the Universal Exposition of Seville, she’s invited to join the official couture parade of Spanish dressmakers. For 15 years she has been dressing the candidates of Miss Seville Contest and Miss Spain on international commitments. Every year her runway becomes one the main attractions at SIMOF, the international showcase of flamenco fashion. Many celebrities and well-known faces in the artistic world choose Pilar Vera to attend important social events.
Currently the brand exports not only within Europe but also to Japan, USA and Latin America. Pilar Vera has been awarded by the Andalusian Regional Government for her role of business woman and entrepreneur. She’s also chairwoman of the first Flamenco Fashion Designers Society (Mof & ART).

Model and fashion show producer Jessica Minh Anh is an expert in transforming the world’s most iconic venues into phenomenal catwalks. Jessica is the one and only event organiser who has gained exclusive permission to produce fashion phenomena at national symbols such as the Eiffel Tower, London’s Tower Bridge, One World Trade Center, and PETRONAS Twin Towers’ Skybridge among many others. Most impressively, she produced the world’s highest fashion show on the Grand Canyon Skywalk at 4,000 feet above the Colorado River. Besides sky-high catwalks where she created an illusion of "models walking in the sky", Jessica is also recognised for her “catwalks on water” when she turned Seine River in Paris and Hudson River in New York into the world’s newest runways. Thanks to her excellent track record of flawless productions and her reputation as a representative of the new generation, she was entrusted to bring a positive image to America’s new symbol of hope and freedom, One World Trade Center, 6 months before it was officially open to the public at the end of last year. According to ABC New York, Jessica Minh Anh is special in many ways, one of which is that she has successfully "combined art, architecture, culture, and fashion.” Fox5 New York positioned her catwalks above the common hypes stating, “Fashion Week may be fabulous, but it pales in comparison with Jessica Minh Anh’s history making catwalk on top of America.” Jessica Minh Anh’s seasonal catwalks have been featured on the BBC, FOX5, ABC, CBS, ITV, CNBC, MBC1, Canale 5, MTV, FashionTV, Dubai TV, The Independent, The National, Wall Street Journal, The Times of India, Daily Telegraph, The Globe & Mail, Le Nouvel Observateur, Le Parisien, La Repubblica, Il Messaggero, Condé Nast Traveller, Robb Report, Travel + Leisure, Vogue Italia, Harper’s Bazaar, L’Officiel, WWD, ELLE, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, and various inflight magazines among others. Jessica was mentioned as the ‘Leader of the new generation of innovative entrepreneurs' by Le Nouvel Observateur and 'Global fashion mover and shaker’ by Canale 5 Italia. In her latest interview with Marie Claire Brazil, Jessica Minh Anh mentioned that she has worked non-stop to prove that, “you do not have to be privileged to find your place in the world.” Jessica Minh Anh currently resides in Paris, France and continues to travel internationally to produce 3 history-making catwalks per year.
