EL CAPOTE, is a tribute, a memory to two bullfighters who lost their lives on the road on a fateful May 24, 1969, and to a "Bullfighter of life". They were my father, the Venezuelan bullfighter Héctor Alvarez (26 years old) and my grandfather Rafael Vega de los Reyes "Gitanillo de Triana" (54 years old). Unfortunately, I was not lucky enough to meet them, I had 6 months left to jump into the ring of life, a life full of joy despite everything, thanks to my dear mother Pastora Vega, bullfighter of life, of those who come close and They go out through the Puerta Grande, raising their two children alone and showing their flamenco art all over the world, always with a smile on their faces and the energy to stop a train. She has taught me everything, and everything that I am, I owe to her. My great-grandmother "Pastora Imperio", completes the task of this genealogical tree full of art
art of OUR, FLAMENCO AND BULLS, yes sir, with capital letters, proud of our folklore and customs because we firmly believe that "IT IS TIME TO SHOW ABOUT OURS" We cannot finish this section called "Inspiration" without naming a person outside of series, the teacher Juan José Padilla, he cannot better represent the philosophy of this brand: Honor, Humility, Courage, Generosity, Sacrifice, strength and Fellowship ..., there is a before and after meeting him. For my wife and partner in this adventure, Carolina López and for me, it is a pleasure and an honor to share with all of you this heartfelt tribute transformed into garments, made, as you can imagine, with the greatest love and interest in the world. It's for you! Rafael Dona Vega.
