Like all best traditions, the Elle Spose Christmas Party took place again this year at the Baglioni Hotel in Milan.

The latest issue of the magazine directed by Michela Gattermayer will be out at the end of December with all the news, styles, and trends for the next season.

And to raise their glasses to the new year and say goodbye to the past year, more than 80 guests including designers, wedding planners, floral designers, press, and industry experts have enthusiastically accepted the invitation by Elle Spose.

After a short introductory speech by Maria Elena Viola, director of Elle Italia, Michela Gattermayer presented the new issue and the most relevant coming events, including the Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week that will take place from 20 to 26 April.

Always committed to creativity and craftsmanship, the fair will host once more the Elle International Bridal Awards this year. !
Among the new features, there will be two new awards: one dedicated to the ‘Best Bridal Boutique‘, in recognition of the best workshop/point of sale in each country where participating ELLE editions are present and a ‘Sustainability Award’, reminding everyone that 22 April is Earth day and we celebrate the protection of our world!

Estermaria Laruccia, Director of VBBFW, spoke about caring for and respecting the planet, and will present cross sustainability projects for the entire sector in the coming months.

Winners of the last edition will also attend the event, including stylist Antonio Riva and wedding planner Anna Frascisco, and of course Elisabetta Polignano, Elisabetta Delogu, Le Spose di Gio, Poesie Spose, and many others!

In addition to the enjoyment and pleasure of celebrating together, the event always proves to be precious in terms of exchanging ideas and building new synergies in a dynamic and fascinating sector like the bridal world.
