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 (aged 26) and my grandfather Rafael Vega de los Reyes "Gitanillo de Triana" (aged 54). Unfortunately, I did not have the luck to meet them, I had 6 months to jump into the arena of life, a life full of joy despite everything, thanks to my dear mother Pastora Vega, bullfighter of life, of whom they get closer and They go out the Puerta Grande, raising their two children alone and showing their flamenco art around the world, always with a smile on their faces and energy to stop a train. She has taught me everything, and everything I am, I owe to her. My great-grandmother "Pastora Imperio" finishes the job of this family 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'S TIME TO PRESUME OF WHAT IS OUR" We cannot finish this section called "Inspiration" without naming a person out of series, the teacher Juan José Padilla, he cannot better represent the philosophy of this brand: Honor, Humility, Courage, Generosity, Sacrifice, strength and Companionship ..., 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 you all this heartfelt tribute transformed into clothing, made, as you can imagine, with the utmost love and interest in the world. It goes for you! Rafael Dona Vega.
