Brides isn't the only brand celebrating a landmark anniversary; Spanish bridal powerhouse Pronovias is marking their 50th with the publication of their first-ever book.
Dedicated "to all the brides of the world," 50 Years Dressing Dreams commemorates half a century of their couture-like dresses, their exquisite detail work, evocative campaigns and legendary catwalks. Not to mention, the famous faces that have walked and modelled for them: Bar Rafaeli, Francesca Eastwood, Petra Nemcova, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes and cover girl Karolina Kurkova, to name but a few.
The book isn't all pretty pictures though; written by historian and journalist Charo Mora, fourteen separate chapters guide readers through the creation and evolution of the firm, from its humble origins as a lace- and silk-shop called 'El Suizo' in 1922 through to modern day international powerhouse status. Wedding dress traditions, practices and customs are also beautifully brought to life.
To ensure that as many brides can celebrate with them, Pronovias are sharing the book, free of charge, here. Here's to the next 50 years!
