Curiosity Shop: Menkes

Menkes was inaugurated in Madrid in 1950, initially as a modest establishment that only sold typical regional costumes from all around Spain, including of course the famous flamenco dresses. Since then, it has become one of the most famous fancy dress shops in the city and was visited by Hollywood stars such as Vivien Leigh and Ava Gardner during the fifties.
