Flans were a Mexican pop group consisting of Ilse Maria Olivo Schweinfurth (Caracas, Venezuela, November 27, 1965), Ivonne Margarita Guevara Garcia (Mexico City, October 31, 1961) and Irma Angélica Hernández Ochoa, the latter better known as Mimi (Monterrey, Nuevo León, December 28, 1962) during the second half of the eighties to early nineties.
The creator of this group was Mildred Villafañe who became their representative. Mildred Villafane was the daughter of Puerto Rican millionaire living in Mexico, Joaquin Villafañe, owner of the famous "Sal de Uvas Picot" (the equivalent of Alka-Seltzer Mexican). The idea first conceived in 1984 by Mildred was a television program aimed at young people and was named Fans. Fans narrated the adventures of a group of teenagers who would find it impossible to get autographs from their favorite artists, and curious detail, the title song Flans contained in the band's first record was the opening theme for the television pilot. The program was comprised of Mimi and Michelle (members of Flans), Pedro Maras and Amparín (member of the defunct duo Crescent) among others. The program never aired and returned to form as a band in the concept of Flans. In its initial concept Mimi Ivonne and Amparín would be Mildred members but later decided to replace the latter by a new value: Ilse. Mildred also be added that auditioned over a thousand young women for this project, including a very young Alejandra Guzman and Sasha Sokol.
