Wedding Ideas would like to express their deepest sympathies at the passing of Pronovias’ creative director Manuel Mota, who died yesterday, aged just 46.
Mota worked for the luxury Spanish bridal dress company for 23 years, and is widely credited as the man who made Pronovias the exceptional brand it is today.
He created three collections a year – the Pronovias mainline, a luxury collection for high end brides, and a selection of cocktail and bridesmaid dresses.
“The Pronovias family has lost one of its best loved members,” explained Pronovias’ president, Alberto Palatchi in a statement to WWD. “We are left with the memory of so many collections, so many catwalk shows, so much effort and talent. Manuel was a great partner, a great artist and above all, a great person. We will never forget him.”
