Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week (VBBFW) is always hotly anticipated, bringing together the world’s designers and buyers in what is arguably the capital of bridal fashion. You’ll find a who’s who of top designers alongside new and exciting names. With hundreds of gowns and separates premiering on the runways, there is plenty of choice for the 2020 bride. But clear trends are also evident across the designer collections. Glitter and metallics are big news for 2020 – in some cases with a Deco twist while other designs are pure Hollywood red carpet. We are also seeing a return of the big sleeve, ranging from puffed and Victorian-style leg-of-mutton to 1980s Dynasty-style statement. Tailored elements are creeping into many collections, with tuxedos in the mix alongside neat jackets, glamorous long coats and more relaxed gowns with shirt-collar details. The belt is part of this tailored trend – it ranges from neat to chunky, but often with a distinctive buckle. And finally, all hail the ballgown – many designs that caught our eye are super-glam and distinctly regal.

It’s always hard to choose just 20 designs, but here’s our shortlist of looks set to be big news in bridal in 2020 and beyond.
