We have been so lucky, that we've actually been able to visit Barcelona, Spain and see where your Pronovias wedding dresses are made. We've toured the factory as the seamstresses were sewing away, and all the magic was happening. Little did we know the entire process behind the magic of these incredible gowns.
In fact it takes a team of designers, pattern-makers and seamstresses to bring each and every dress to life. All led by Creative Director, Herve Moreau. Read on to learn how your Pronovias wedding dress comes to life.
Everything starts with the first drafts of the dresses that come from the Pronovias design team. They are responsible for sketching the designs and explaining to the model makers what the dress will be like and the materials with which it will be made.
It is now when all the experience of Pronovias pattern-makers comes into play to create all the pieces of the dress, which are then assembled like a puzzle and tried on the mannequin for the first time. The technical name for this testing of the garment is a toile. This is not normally done with the real fabrics. Similar materials are used to check the proportions and whether or not the result is a suitable interpretation of the initial design.
From the initial design to the wedding dress coming to life.
Around 80 hours are invested in the final dress pattern, a very laborious, hand-crafted process, which is, without a doubt, one of the keys to the success of Pronovias´ dresses.
Moreover, Pronovias is already known for innovation and the development of new fabrics, patterns, and techniques, a trait that is now part of our DNA as a bridal house. As you can clearly see the detail put into each dress is an intricate and time consuming process.
