The major Barcelona event, an international sector benchmark, will again be the privileged stage for 22 large bridal fashion firms that will officially present their 2015 season collections to buyers and professionals from the five continents. From May 6th to 9th, the catwalk will provide the setting for the latest creations of leading firms in this sector that enjoys enormous success worldwide and proposes multiple styles, shapes and colours to make brides feel unique and special on their big day.
Rosa Clará, Jesús Peiró, Victorio & Lucchino, Yolan Cris, Inmaculada García, M&M, Cymbeline, Isabel Zapardiez, Jordi Dalmau, Hannibal Laguna, Ana Torres, Franc Sarabia, Manualvarez, Matilde Cano, Patricia Avedaño, Sonia Peña, Miquel Suay, Juana Martín, Carla Ruiz, Fuetecapala, Cabotine by Gema Nicolás and Pronovias are some of the brands that will grace the catwalk with the maximum expression of bridal wear elegance and style. The shows, which will be inaugurated by the firm Rosa Clará on the first day of the event, will take place over four days in Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Via Exhibition Centre, except for Pronovias that will close the catwalk on May 9th in the Italian Pavilion (Z6) in the Montjuïc exhibition centre.
The names of the collections, such as “La vie en rose” by Cymbeline, “True Love” by Carla Ruiz, “Perfume” by Jesús Peiró and “Bohemia” by Matilde Cano evoke the magic atmospheres that the designers capture in their creations. In order to do so, they use personalised patterns, sophisticated fabrics and very diverse colour schemes.
The general trends are for wedding dresses to share a certain vintage air, spring details and a romantic touch. Designers will achieve this by using exclusive fabrics, such as Chantilly lace, chiffon, tulle, organza, crepe and Mikado silk with flower embroidery and applications made from crystal, mother of pearl and sequins. These fabrics are used alone or superimposed to created very diverse shapes: from minimal models with refined lines to very voluminous oversized skirts, in both 1920s-inspired bohemian style and 60s boho-chic.
The colours will complete the definition of each design’s personality, giving touches of nuage, pearl, pink, beige, pale blue and grey. Nonetheless, different hues of white will continue to reign on the catwalk giving splendour to the most radiant dresses.
