Thursday 14th October Sophie et Voilà presented the new ‘Black label’ collection at the Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week Gala, a key and internationally renowned catwalk in the field of bridal fashion.
“Although black was always crouched in all of our collections, in each fashion show, in each photo shoot, this time it takes full prominence,” says Sofia Arribas, founder and creative director of the label.
The event showed once again how deeply the brand is rooted in Basque traditions inviting Jon Maya, renowned Basque dancer and National Dance Award winner, to perform an “aurresku de honor”, a traditional dance that represents respect for those to whom it’s dedicated.
The music has been provided by the Cor de Noies de l’Orfeó Català.
Margarita Ruyra de Andrade and her daughter Valentina Suárez-Zuloaga, founders of the Spanish fashion creators community ES Fascinante, have been modelling on the catwalk.
“The past months served to rediscover many things, including the importance of our culture. That Basque culture on which Sophie et Voilà has always based its philosophy is something extensive that encompasses all areas of art and that is how we wanted to demonstrate it at this event ”, Arribas explains.
This event also had a charitable purpose in support of the Stop Child Marriage project of Save the Children.
Thus, the dresses that make up ‘Black label’ are completely, magically and impeccably dark. Elegant, sophisticated and very flattering. From the representative designs of the cut out trend that we see so much in casual fashion to the satin designs adorned with feathers.
