This year’s Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week 2020 was like no other. Despite the challenges the bridal industry has faced during the pandemic, this year’s event showed us how determined we are stick with the motto, “the show must go on” to keep business and a future bride’s dreams alive.
Out of the 24 fashion shows presented online and on the VBBF app, Bridal Times was able to identify with new “Stand Out” or concurrently running trends showcased on this year’s runway.
We saw a variety of puff sleeve types from designers and manufacturers this year. The puff sleeve looks were incorporated in almost every style from classic bridal looks to boho. We even spotted the puff sleeve trend in short sleeves versions or even in the very popular “removable sleeve trend”, for those who are willing to change up their looks on the wedding day.
Fluted and Removable Sleeves
Brides in 2021 will also have the choice of the beloved fluted sleeve on their wedding day.
Below is another example of the “removable sleeve” providing brides with 2 looks in 1 option.
Separates have been appearing on the runway as early as 2016, and we can expect to see more styles in year 2021. Perfect for beach weddings or brides with a great sense of self-confidence, there will be plenty options to choose from in 2021.
A feature that never fails to catch attention every year are the various bursts of colours on the catwalk. Besides the “Go-To” nudes, beiges and champagne colors, we saw pastel pinks, stunning reds and blacks, golds and even a light blue wedding dress! Coloured “accents” were also incorporated on wedding gowns from black belts, pink lace-up backs or blue bows.
Cascading ruffles was a key feature on the catwalk this year. Ruffles were added to a variety of different styles, creating for a waterfall eye-catcher on the runway.
Deep V-Neck cuts on wedding gowns are still very much a trend but for brides who are looking for a bit more coverage or the modest “Grace Kelly” royal look, there were plenty of high necklines appearing on stunning gowns on the runway.
Here to stay for 2021 are the stunning bridal capes, sexy transparent cut-outs, 3-D Floral applications, deep plunging necklines, and if course the long cathedral style veils that adds drama to any bridal look.
Congratulations to the Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week Team for putting on such a great bridal event.
