Nadia Manjarrez spent her entire life surrounded by fashion, so it’s no wonder that she's an up-and-coming designer taking the bridal fashion industry by storm. While she was growing up in Mexico, she watched her mother design clothes for her and her siblings, and she even learned how to sew at age 6. She quickly fell in love with the creative process and decided to pursue a career in fashion. 

Nadia received a degree in Fashion and Textile Design from the University of Monterrey and went on to work for fashion powerhouses, such as Badgley Mischka, Marchesa, and David Messier. In 2017, the young designer launched her own non-traditional evening wear brand called Flor et.al.

After the tragic loss of her father due to Covid, Nadia was inspired to launch Nadia Manjarrez Studio Bridal, her bridal atelier based in Mexico, to pick up the broken pieces in her life and create something meaningful. “Throughout 2020, I have learned that life is short and fragile,” she says. “We are meant to do something impactful that we love, to make up for the many things that we are not able to choose in life.” Her brand is full of versatile, modular, and customizable gowns that radiate hope and beauty in a time of despair and unpredictability.

Below, take a look at the latest collection from Nadia Manjarrez. 

Nadia Manjarrez 2021 Collection

In her debut collection, Nadia created 12 original looks that were each handcrafted in Mexico. Every design is a convertible dress that features detachable trains, skirts, sleeves, or overlays to help brides easily transform their looks and transition from the ceremony to the reception to the after-party without needing to buy multiple dresses. Her wedding gowns are intended to be worn for more than one occasion, so they emphasize versatility, functionality, and wearability.

The sleek and elegant collection features a range of flowing silk, chiffon, lace, organza, and tulle fabrics and romantic silhouettes. Irregular cuts, metallic touches, beaded appliques, and fringe edges also add an unexpected flair to the designs. Inspired by Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing porcelain with metal, Nadia decided to use beauty to mend her broken heart after her father’s death. Take a look at the breathtaking collection below.

In accordance with our diversity pledge, it's our duty to note that at the time of publishing, this brand/designer did not include BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) in their 2021 campaign imagery. We have since reached out to this brand/designer to encourage them to include BIPOC imagery in not only this season’s campaign but in future campaigns as well.
