Malta Fashion Week- Pronovias, The Bridal Show

Hi Guys!

Day Two of the  Malta Fashion Week kicked off with a Bridal & Cocktail Dresses show sponsored by the renowned brand Pronovias.

Today we were hit by Wedding Fever BIG TIME, Denise had a wedding last night whilst Martina rushed over from a wedding to enjoy the stunning show put on by Malta Fashion Week and Pronovias.

We were joined by one of our biggest supporters Anthony, Martina's boyfriend who (for once) wanted us to share his OOTD alongside our OOTD.

The show was held at Casino Maltese in the heart of Valletta. The setting was mostly on white and the main spotlight was given to the models who trailed the hallways looking stunning in various wedding gowns and cocktail dresses.

Overhearing various people talking, we realised that not only were we joined by other fashion enthusiasts but many of the people in attendance were in fact brides to be.

Not only did brides to be have the opportunity to view various wedding dresses from the collection but they could also get hair and make up ideas for their big day. 

Hair (by Marielle of Prive) had a very romantic feel were a variety of hair styles including up styles and gentle curls were chosen to compliment each dress whilst the Make Up (by Elaine Galea) was kept as natural as possible for the bridal models whilst the other models had a more smoky/ evening eye look.

What we enjoyed from this show is that it catered for each different style of wedding dresses. You could see sheer dresses which give a modern twist to the Cinderella ball gown type of dress to the lace details made famous by Grace Kelly to various embellishments perfect for an evening wedding!

As I grew up I always had that ideal wedding dress in mind since from a young age I have always had a guilty pleasure for wedding dresses always peeking in shop windows and always building up my idea of the ideal wedding dress. This show however ,has put many different styles into perspective for me that come my wedding day I know I will definitely have various options from where to choose from.

Apart from having various wedding dresses to choose from, one could also see a number of cocktail dresses which one could wear when attending a wedding. A comment which struck me by a person in the audience was that she was thinking of using said cocktail dresses for her bridesmaids and adapting them to her needs, as one can see from the below pictures these dresses were in fact both ideal for guests and bridesmaids.

Our good friend Gaby from Supernova Models posed for us to get a closer look at her make up. Gaby wore two dresses in the show which were an evening bridal dress and an evening cocktail dress therefore her make up was a subtle smoky eye to compliment both outfits.
