When Olive first contacted me she knew exactly what kind of dress she wanted for her wedding. She’d chosen a boho chic model from Yolancris’ collection. She knew all Pronovias dresses by heart and also was willing to try some of the amazing dresses of Oscar de la Renta. However the dress of Yolancris was first on the list of favourites.

The day she landed in Barcelona our first appointment was at Yolancris to tryon the amazing dress, however it turned out to be a disappointment. It looked so breathtaking on the model but even though Olive has a very nice figure, the dress did not fit her, it just did not look nice on her… Neither did any of Pronovias dresses, we never had the “This is the one” feeling so we ended up in another shop in Barcelona trying on dresses by Oscar de la Renta & Vera Wang. 

Oscar de la Renta’s creations were amazing. The fabric, the shape… everything about them makes you look elegant, glamourous, sophisticated…

In the end the chosen one was a Vera Wang dress made of silk on tulle (and Olive originally said she did not like tulle)! 

Olive looked absolutely breathtaking in this dress, glamorous, sophisticated with a romantic back, this dress has the perfect combination of all a bride can dream of…!!!


She choose the colour white, so in some weeks time she will be back in Barcelona for the final trial. I can not wait to see her in that dress!!

This is a good example of the reason I always recommend my clients to try on differnet styles and fabrics. You never know, which one will be the perfect dress for you so do not close your mind to some specific model and fabrics as you can get very surprised about how gorgeous you look with models, which may be in your mind were not favourites!! Another essential factor is the importance of feeling comfortable,  being able to breath, to sit and to dance!!!
