BARCELONA — If Pronovias has its way, delicate hand-embroideries, lace, sheer illusion overlays and especially flower-power will be key fashion trends for next year’s brides.
The Barcelona-based manufacturer’s two-day bridal presentation kicked off with a nighttime catwalk show in the Catalan National Art Museum’s Oval Room. Featuring 78 styles by resident designer and creative director Manuel Mota and Elie Saab, the only outsider line in Pronovias’ stable, dresses ranged from shapely fit-and-flare silhouettes to full-skirted gowns in layers of finely embroidered lace on tulle or chiffon with oversize flowers, petals, beading and mother-of-pearl trim, feathers, sleeves and a bevy of transparent cover-ups including boleros and a voluminous cape effect. There was not the suggestion of color.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
