Atelier Pronovias 2018 Preview Collection

Atelier Pronovias Raciela at Leonie Claire Hove

May is hugely exciting for me as a boutique owner for two reasons. Firstly, I visit the trade shows both in London and Barcelona to see what our fabulous designers have created for the season ahead (shopping for a shop owner). One of our designers works by splitting the season into two parts, which means I have actually already chosen some new styles from their 2018 preview collection that I saw in January. The second reason for my May excitement is that these gowns are just starting to arrive in the boutique!

We adore Atelier Pronovias at Leonie Claire because it has a beautiful balance of classic bride with modern twist. As a personal preference I tend to choose the more minimal styles for us so that we can cater for the bride who really craves chic and sharp. For the 2018 season I have broken away from that slightly and selected a few incredibly beautiful styles with lace and full soft chiffon.

Raciela is already with us and I am seriously in love. To date our collection of crepe Atelier gowns have been purely soft fit but Raciela breaks that tradition and actually has a structured internal corset. For the bride that wants minimalism but needs support this could well be the answer.

Our 6 preview styles are arriving throughout the month. I will be sharing on social media as and when they come to us so don’t forget to follow our Instagram and Facebook accounts.

Welcome 2018 Atelier Preview!
