As a key international event for the bridal industry, Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week 2019 saw some of the leading names in bridal showcase their latest collections. Here are the key wedding dress trends that emerged during the event.
A key trend to emerge from Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week was capes. Some of the leading names in bridal such as Demetrios, Maggie Sottero and Pronovias featured this trend in their catwalk shows.
Capes were first introduced on the catwalk a few years ago but this season's collections prove that they are back better than ever. Offering a glamorous addition to the simple silhouette, this trend is perfect for brides who want to make a statement look.
Colour was once again very popular on the runway with the likes of Randy Fenoli, Maggie Sottero and The Atelier all showcasing their take on the current trend. Maggie Sottero stunned on the runway with a dramatic black gown whilst Randy Fenoli and The Atelier opted for a more subtle take with light pink and blue gowns.
A new trend to emerge from the catwalks at Barcelona Fashion Week was ruffles. Predicted as the ‘it’ trend for 2019, many designers including Pronovias, The Atelier and Marchesa incorporated this in their latest collections.
Pronovias and The Atelier both showcased gowns with dramatic ruffles for maximum impact whereas Marchesa opted for a more subtle approach.
Bows were also prominent this season, with many brands being playful and creative with the trend. Jesus Peiro, Pronovias and Marchesa were among those who stunned on the runway with their designs.
Pronovias and Jesus Peiro showcased gowns with bows on the waist while Marchesa revealed a spectacular gown with a soft bow hanging off the shoulder.
Dramatic sleeves have been an upcoming trend for some time now but this season saw the trend in all its glory. BEBA’S, Jesus Peiro and Demetrios all had different takes with BEBA’S featuring a remarkable low cut gown with ruffles sleeves, creating a sultry yet elegant look.
Jesus Peiro were dramatic in their approach with an ’80s inspired puffed sleeve gown. Demetrios’ fashion show showcased several gowns with dramatic sleeves but a standout gown was an off the shoulder design that was stylish and graceful.
