Talking about Seville is talking about flamenco. For this reason, the city of light hosts the most important international flamenco fashion event: SIMOF, Salón Internacional de Moda Flamenca (the International Flamenco Fashion Show).
The Salón Internacional de Moda Flamenca (SIMOF) is the name given to the most important international flamenco fashion event. It takes place every year between 30th January and 2nd February at the Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones de Sevilla, also known as FIBES, an architectural space located in the East Seville neighbourhood and its headquarters are at the Fundación Cajasol.

Therefore, if you are planning to visit the Andalusian capital on that date and you are passionate about flamenco, you cannot miss this landmark.
Here are some tips to make the most of a parade:
In addition to the spectacular parades, SIMOF offers a series of parallel activities, including the SIMOF EGO space, a consolidated exhibition area where alternative activities to the auditorium’s own parades take place, such as the presentation of the winner of the SIMOF poster competition of the year, numerous professional and children’s parades with designers from Mexico, Miami, Galicia, Huelva, Malaga, Granada, Coria del Río, Utrera and Los Palacios.
Also scheduled is the parade of the winner of the Young Designers’ Contest, a Master Class in flamenco dress pattern making.
In addition, the venue has a commercial area where 128 exhibitors are located, including the designers who will be showing their work on the catwalk and other firms of flamenco fashion, accessories, footwear, fabrics, make-up and other auxiliary companies and those related to the sector.
