One collection that really stood out for us at Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week recently was the Isabel Zapardiez 2016 bridal range. This beautiful collection somehow combines well structured gowns with a dreamlike quality. There are fairy-tale princess gowns, mythological goddesses and action heroines- these are dresses with attitude. Isabel Zapardiez started out designing ready to wear fashion, and in 2002 entered the world of haute couture. Isabel opened her first studio in 2002 in Spain’s San Sebastian supplying wedding dresses and special occasion clothing. Her bridal collection is feminine and diverse with a great range of looks; there are voluminous skirts, mermaid style dresses and smooth A-line designs. She also uses a great range of materials: light natural silk chiffons balance heavier draped fabrics, incorporating intricate beadwork, lace and feathers to name a few. With the yellow-toned ivory often seen here, Isabel mimics the sunrise as well as tipping her cap to the past: yellow was the colour worn by brides in ancient Greece and Rome.
