May is a key month for brides: not only does it mark the start of high season for weddings, but also 2015 collections begin to come out of the closet, revealing all the new designs of bridal dresses for the following year. …
Manuel Mota for Pronovias 2010
We’ve already mentioned that many celebrities have picked Manuel Mota designs for their celebrity weddings, but what about the 2010 preview of this Spanish designer’s new collection? Let’s take a look at Manuel Mota for Pronovias 2010.
Just like its close relation, the Pronovias 2010 collection, Manuel Mota for Pronovias 2010 is a collection that embraces the female figure.
Described as “sober” by the company, the dresses are characterised by the amazing attention to detail, including perfect creases, folds and gathered material.
The Greek-style, so in fashion at the moment, is also present in this collection. Small and large features, like floral appliques, bows and the use of lace all make for a stylish collection that will surely draw the attention of celebrity brides, as in the past.
The collection, currently made up of 18 dresses, can be viewed on the Pronovias website. Here are some of our favourites:
Chabela is a bodice and skirt with a long train. Classic lines and a perfect cut in the skirt is complemented by a structured bodice full of layered folds. A similar design is Chester, which this time integrates the folded bodice with a dropped waist and long train.
Then you have Chalet. This one-shoulder wedding dress, with a floral appliqué on the shoulder, is gathered tight at the waist in order to highlight the bride’s more feminine features. A sash from the shoulder to the floor makes for an interesting Greek-style back, complemented by a loose bustle decorated, again with flowers (perhaps a reminder of Mota’s early influences, which included Audrey Hepburn’s look in My Fair Lady).
And our third favourite is Okapi, which combines the beauty and delicacy of Mota’s use of lace with our favourite halterneck style.
