The world’s largest bridal brand, Pronovias, was celebrating its 50th anniversary last year – and to mark the occasion, the Barcelona-based label created a traveling retrospective of its designs. Fifty Love Stories - an exhibit that started in the Catalonia capital and then moved on to New York, Pronovias in Dubai and Milan - not only traces the history of Pronovias, but also of wedding wear as a whole.
From princess gowns to cocktail dresses, visitors can see how the practice of ready-to-wear wedding dresses has evolved over time – along with the vision of an ideal bride. Pronovias's 50-year retrospective traces the evolution of bridal wear from the Sixties to modern day. The family-owned brand, which was founded in 1964 and is currently run by patriarch Alberto Palatchi, began to use embellishments, lace and more complicated silhouettes in the Seventies. By the Eighties, Pronovias’s techniques had clearly evolved - with styles that are indicative of the decade’s preference for a more-is-more aesthetic.
The Nineties brought the rise of the Julia Roberts-type bride – natural, feminine, and ethereal, like the many lace gowns sported by her character in Runaway Bride.
The exhibit’s other half portrays the best of Pronovias’s custom atelier services. There are even two gowns that were produced in homage to the marriage of Kate Middleton and Prince William.
Pronovias's modern day looks are defined by clean lines, sumptuous fabrics, and streamlined silhouettes with personal details.
Pronovias offers bridal gowns; bridal accessories, such as veils, headpieces, shoes, lingerie, and other accessories; ceremony, bridesmaid, and cocktail party dresses; and party accessories, including bags and shoes.
