Runway shows are one of the highlights of the bridal season – and this season more hotly anticipated than ever. While the show didn’t go on in spring, as it usually would, Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week took to the stage in early autumn in digital format and, over five days, delivered some spectacular trends for the season to come. Here are six of our favourite runway looks for 2021.

1. Sparkle twist – Isabel Sanchis

Isabel Sanchis’ elegant slimline gown has sparkle trim

Chic and slimline gowns are popular across new season collections but Valencia designer Isabel Sanchis can always be relied on to give this elegant style a super- sophisticated twist. We love this column off-the-shoulder design for its clean lines, and sparkling trim designed to draw the eye to neckline and arms.

2. Top tiers – Rembo Styling

Rembo Styling’s tiered gown has relaxed glamour

Tiers are adding a lighthearted twist to 2021 bridal collections and design house Marylise gave us a classic look for the high-summer or beach bride. In pure white, it has bootlace straps, a bandeau neckline and layered tiers to give plenty of movement to the skirt.

3. Mini marvel – Poesie Sposa

Poesie Sposa’s mini is an alternative bridal take

We’ve seen a few bold minis on the runway this year but this delicious babydoll-style design by Poesie Sposa tops our list for its fun take on bridal traditions. With a round embellished illusion panel neckline, it has a frothy spotted skirt with silk frill hem – the perfect choice for brides who want to make a statement.

4. Deco belle – Jesus Peiro

Jesus Peiro’s column gown has a deco twist

The Amalia collection from Jesus Peiro offered dresses for every style of celebration. One of our favourites was this classic plunge-neck dress is in stretch crepe and Chantilly lace with fabulous bejewelled tassels to add a bold Deco twist. It’s a versatile number for day-to-evening parties – especially when you add one of the designer’s glitter tulle capes.

5. Yolancris – Lounge luxe

Yolancris’ fluid gown has on-trend sleeves

Glamorous lounge-style dresses and separates are key trends for 2021 and this flowing number from modern-boho designer Yolancris is just perfect for poolside or relaxed gathering. On-trend elements include bold feature sleeves with smart button cuffs, a split front and soft bow detail at the neckline.

6. Princess line – Vestal

A newcomer to Valmont Barcelona Bridal Week runway, couturier Vestal showed a glittering collection full of intricate details in sparkling crystal. This silver-hued dress stood out for its refined and regal flavour, with simple round neckine, scalloped short sleeves and flowing skirt with train.
