Up & Down...
There seemed to be a lot of ‘I-Want-It-All’ going on at Barcelona Bridal Week 2016; designers couldn’t quite seem to decide which of two extremes they wanted and so opulently combined both to satisfy their creative cravings. Nowhere was this trend more visible than in hi-lo hemlines, sweeping dramatically to the floor at the back and climbing daringly high at the front to reveal the season’s sexiest shoes.

...Down & Up!
Taking the waist as low as they could go was getting designers all excited, combined with a skirt that took volume to the extreme. Some of the most beautiful silhouettes seen on the catwalk used this flattering juxtaposition.

Fiery passion is in the Spanish Blood and enriches all aspects of the culture from the spicy, colourful foods to the stirring, dramatic traditional music. Raging unbridled throughout the couture world as well, the drama was in full evidence with some of the hugest skirts we have seen - some of the catwalks seemed in danger of not being able to contain the swishing, sashaying expanses of divine wedding dress fabrics.

Mid-length dresses were all over the catwalks, as the best-of-both-worlds trend continued. The tea-length dress is making a real comeback and looked the best when combined with vintage lace and wedding dress embellishments.
