The Pronovias Group is a Spanish organization that was formed in 1964, with its headquarters in Barcelona and subsidiaries in four other countries, including the United States. Unlike most wedding designers, this is a family owned international organization of more than 700 employees and 150 stores around the world.
Way ahead of the game, the Pronovias Group had its first launching wedding dress show in 1964, and wowed the world. Many of their gowns seem to take traditional styles and enhance them with international flair, and the results are absolutely stunning. Though wedding dress aren’t all they make, it certainly seems to be its specialty.
Their 2010 collection is a great example of their work. There’s not a single dog in the bunch, and every dress, though different in style, is not only flattering in bodice but flowing in silhouette and train. Luxurious to a fault, one can see many traditional Spanish touches in them, which isn’t totally surprising.
This company loves using a mixture of silk and lace most of the time, and it works wonderfully, whether the dresses are strapless or not. Even those dresses with corset style bodices seemed like they would be comfortable for any bride to wear, and the mixture of either mermaid or princess style silhouettes were all very feminine and magnificently presented. Some of the mermaid silhouettes flared from the waist, while others flared from the hips; both styles worked great.
One thing that enhanced almost every single dress was the train, most of which were long and flowing, mainly lace but a couple of times more silk. You don’t see as many long trains with today’s modern designers, so this was a nice touch.
But strapless is where it’s at for these designers, and though most of the bodices were corset, they also sported some wrap style bodices that blended will with lacy princess silhouettes. One dress in particular that caught my eye was a strapless form fitting and embroidery-looking gown that blended the corset bodice and empire waist completely, easily a one piece looking gown instead of looking like two or three pieces sewn together, which was definitely glamorous. It also had a long train in the back, and the entire dress kept the same pattern throughout. This was elegance supreme.
A word you don’t hear all that often as it regards wedding dresses definitely applies here; sexy. Every single wedding dress displayed sexuality, and would make it difficult to take your eyes away from the bride. Even the dresses with straps were sexy. One, the only one I remember displaying any color other than white, had touches of silver sewn into the straps and around the top of the neckline and was gorgeous. Another sported a choker styled halter top, but if you looked closely you noticed that it was only for stylistic purposes, as it was really more of a strapless corset and would have stayed up on the bride without the stylist touch added. Yet, for some reason, the addition just enhanced the sexiness of the dress.and shown in this description is a spectacular collection of wedding dresses at Pronovias group, where the shape of a sexy and comfortable to wear.
