Which type of wedding dress would you like to choose for your wedding?

Many of the wedding dresses featured A-line or princess-line designs, creating a voluminous look. The dress by JULIA KONTOGRUNI stood out with its decorative Swarovski crystal embellishments, voluminous princess line, and intricate floral lace decorations, setting it apart from other brands.

Various type of runways

During each brand’s runway, a typical pattern emerged with ceremonial dress displays preceding showcases of wedding dresses. While some brands focused exclusively on wedding dresses, others featured groom attire. Furthermore, the Barcelona Bridal Night, including an evening party, took place at the historic Llotja de Mar building. It hosted a special runway show by Italian designer GIAMBATTISTA VALLI, which was attended by over 450 people eventually. This annual event featured a different brand showcase each year.




PRONOVIAS Special fashion show

This time, PRONOVIAS hosted a unique show at the nearby Museu de Catalunya, attended by BBFW director Albasari Caro, Ed Westwick from the popular US series Gossip Girl, and celebrity Olivia Palermo.

PRONOVIAS represents more than just wedding attire; it embodies a modern, futuristic aesthetic that merges innovative design.

The audience was surrounded by blackout curtains and large circular roller blinds hanging from the ceiling, resembling wedding dress fabric. Initially serving as a projection screen, they were later raised, casting an ambiance akin to Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2024 haute couture show, “THE BUTTON”.
