On visiting ‘Pinazo y Burlay’ a beautiful energy and atmosphere was apparent, as I entered the studio. It is a unique place in Valencia, somewhere to explore and admire what is displayed around the shop. The ‘Fallera’ costumes are breathtaking silhouettes of pattern, colour and texture but another captivating thing about the shop is the sheer array of fabrics to browse too. ‘Pinazo y Burlay’ have made hundreds of Fallera costumes for their clients. They are always taking care to know the taste of their clientele and advise properly in choosing the best fabrics (along with accessories of all kinds) ensuring that each fallera costume has an abundance of detail. ‘Pinazo y Burlay’ also offer Fallera costume rentals with all their accessories so, year after year, you can wear new looks too.

Since the early 1950s, ‘Pinazo y Burlay’ has worked on Valencian clothing in an artisanal way, being one of the first establishments to do so and is the first shop to include the rental option in its services. In 2005, Alisa Burlay obtained the title of master crafter in Valencian clothing

Valencian clothing is the richest in Spain not only for the colour and quality of its fabrics but also for its decorative accessories. Dressings, footwear, mantillas, underwear, hair and combs and many more elements that complete the costume for both women and men. There are a wide variety of accessories that you can use to complete your rental or purchase dresses and  suits. A abundance of possibilities for your fallera, huertana, saragüell and torrentí costumes.

Entering the studio is truly an experience of transformation for the individual as the shop is adorned with volumes of colour and decorative jewels. This is an elegant look and used for special occasions. Indeed, the current Fallera costume is the party clothing that Valencian women wore centuries ago. It is a reflection of family traditions and and a rich cultural heritage too. The array of decorative jewellery and some delicate pieces and other more statement pieces truly elevate the look. As a whole, this shop has an abundance of clothing to truly cherish for a long time.
