Lovella Bridal is saddened by the news that Pronovias creative director Manuel Mota has passed away.

For twenty-three years, Mr. Mota served as Spanish fashion house Pronovias’ creative director, designing countless memorable high fashion bridal gowns for models, celebrities and women in general.

Alberto Palatchi, President of Pronovias Fashion Group, released the following statement in light of Mota’s death: “The Pronovias Family has lost one of their most beloved members. The memory of his collections, his shows, his hard work, his talent and his passion will remain with us forever.”

As recent as May, Lovella was in Barcelona for Barcelona Bridal Week. We toured the Pronovias showroom and met with the amazing Manuel Mota (below). He was hot on the heals of showing yet another exquisite bridal collection.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends and loved ones at this very difficult time.
