Storyline

Alberto (Miguel Ángel Silvestre) has been left to run a store called Velvet, one of the most prestigious fashion stores in Spain, by his late father. Velvet is a Spanish television series (English subtitles available on Netflix). It takes place in the 50's / 60's and displays the beautiful clothing and cars from that era. The main storyline of the show is the business decisions surrounding the continuation of the fashion store and the steamy love story of Alberto, heir of Galerías Velvet, and Ana (Paula Echevarría), who works as a seamstress there.

Trivia

Even though the show is set in the 1950s, the wardrobe stylists goofed up in season 3, episode 4. In the elevator scene with Clara and Victor at the end of the day, Clara is inviting Victor out for drinks. If one looks closely at Clara's headband, she is wearing a 2012 Tory Burch headband.

"Velvet", this show to me is one of the best TV series out there.
12 January 2015 | by msladoSee all my reviews

This show is wonderful and I just love it. I finished watching the episodes of the first season on Netflix and I re-watched them again. Although I don't speak or understand Spanish and just rely on the subtitles, I still really enjoy this show tremendously. The story line about true love, social class differences, sacrifices and other hurdles make this series very interesting, (and educational to me). I am hooked on watching this series that I can hardly wait for more seasons to come. I even started looking bits and pieces of the second season online. I wish the episodes that I found had subtitles on them so I could understand what they were saying, regardless, I watched them and still loved it. (I just used my own imagination and the actors' gestures to kind of figure out what they were saying or what is going on). The actors on this show are just amazing and they are all perfect for their given characters. Another interesting thing about this show was that although there are lead characters, the writers and producers managed to give everyone their own story line which really keep the series worth watching. Now, I am motivated to learn Spanish (hopefully, I could) just so I can re-watch this show again and again in the future. Please continue doing more episodes and more seasons. I thank you and more power to all the actors, writers, producers and everyone involve in creating this show. I salute you!
