BARCELONA — A new sobriety with pared-down shapes and minimal glitz worked its way into Pronovias’ wide-ranging bridal collections for 2010, and international buyers here said it was right for the times.
“The caught-up ball skirts — and there was a serious grouping of them — are fine for early to mid-20-year-olds, but we have more of a demand for slimmer silhouettes for destination weddings and outdoor bridal events,” said Karen Jones, owner of Gowns by Design in Mechanicsburg, Pa. “We’re seeing a lot of older, over-30 brides and they’re beyond the big skirts.”
