The jury of the fourth edition of the ELLE International Bridal Awards has presented the awards to the winning firms during last night’s ceremony which was broadcast on the Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week Digital Experience platform. The show, organised by Fira de Barcelona and international leader in bridal fashion, has launched this new format with the aim of supporting the industry at a particularly complex time, ratifying its role as host and collaborator of international events such as the EIBAs, as well as being a driving force for business and connections between the different agencies in this field, such as companies, professionals and the end customers on a global level.
The 12 awards presented at the ELLE International Bridal Awards 2020, organised by the ELLE magazine in collaboration with Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week, were awarded yesterday during a gala ceremony which, for the first time ever, was broadcast online on the VBBFW App.
The jury was composed of eleven editors at ELLE from various countries: Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, South Korea, the Middle East, Spain, Sweden, Russia and Turkey, as well as the Director of Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week, Estermaria Laruccia.
