The next and imminent appointment for the bridal world is October 14 in Barcelona. In collaboration with the Catalan Department of Business and Work, the international bridal fair of Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week has organized a happening to celebrate the sector in this delicate historical moment.
The claim of the event: The new beginning. It will be a special occasion to bring together, before the 2022 edition, designers, brands, and operators in the bridal sector. The objective? Reconnect and give visibility to the industry after a difficult season for everyone. And so what better opportunity to talk about some lines bride a bit unusual to the classics that we all know.
1. VERA WANG: Since 1990, New York fashion designer Vera Wang has been offering innovative and eye-catching wedding dresses on the international scene, reinterpreting the idea of the classic bride. It remains the dream of every bride: modern, romantic, elegant, refined, wide and not, in sparkling tulle, silk organza, and lace. The dresses are soft, the skirts voluminous, and the detail becomes cool: the black belt and blush color highlight the waist’s extreme femininity. Corsets are inspired by lingerie. It gives all brides a sense of importance and grandeur.
2.GIAMBATTISTA VALLI: Giambattista Valli said yes. Yes, to the first long-awaited collection of wedding dresses. After dressing celebrities like Amal Clooney or Jessica Biel and royalties like Charlotte Casiraghi on their fateful day, the designer decided to launch the first bridal capsule collection on September 9, 2021. It began with Bloomingdales, New York, and then moved to luxury retailers around the world.
3. CHANEL: Their names are Inès de la Fressange, Claudia Schiffer, Natalia Vodianova, Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner. The names of the supermodels that, from the eighties to today, have made history. They can say that they had the privilege of being accompanied on the profane altar of the catwalks by the most famous designer in the world, in person. And, finally, to have worn, albeit fake, fabulous wedding dresses. Karl Lagerfeld, who, during his long career at the head of the House, gave us spectacular wedding dresses. Since its inception as a creative leader in 1983, the Kaiser has shown particular attention to its high fashion shows. But the highlight of every fashion show Chanel Haute Couture, thanks to him, has become the one in which he went out, on the end, the bride. A rite still respected today by his successor, creative director Virginie Viard.
4. VIVIENNE WESTWOOD: The name of Vivienne Westwood needs no introduction: it is preceded by fame and glory. But Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding dress in Sex & The City deserves a clarification. Volumetric, scenic, pompous, simply unforgettable. The dress that actress Sarah Jessica Parker wears in the famous 2008 film became iconic, to the point that luxury shopping giant Net-a-porter proposed a shorter version. It was sold out in a few hours. The designer designs wedding dresses with their impeccable strong and punk touch from the 2000s.
5. ZUHAIR MURAD: Born in 1971, Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad is among the most loved creatives by Hollywood stars. Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, and Ivana Trump are just some of the most loyal customers who choose it for that sensual but princely style. Inspired, especially in the preciousness of embroidery, is the tradition of his homeland, Lebanon. The style of Zuhair Murad is easily recognizable. Even the least fond of the catwalks recognizes, at first sight, a creation. The designer’s watchword is to amaze, and he creates dream clothes, refined and precious, which enchant those who wear them and look at them like real works of art. The fabrics are opulent and special: organza, satin, silk, tulle, voile, chiffon, all finely embroidered as a reference to exclusivity.
