Barcelona's famous bridal designer Rosa Clará is known for her elegant, figure-flattering shapes and exquisite detailing. Following her last collection, which channeled the decadent details of the Roaring Twenties, the 2015 Rosa Clará collection is an homage to the most iconic movie stars of our time. We sat down with the designer to hear about her celebrity inspiration, her top styling tips, and her favorite bridal trends.
If you view your walk down the aisle as your own red carpet moment, the 2015 Rosa Clará collection was made for you.
"The 2015 Rosa Clará collection pays tribute to the iconic Hollywood actresses who have been the muses of the greatest fashion designers of the past several decades," says the designer. "We were inspired by Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. The setting of the runway show was inspired by the streets of New York City, as the location of so many memorable scenes from film and TV; from the protagonists of Sex and the City to Woody Allen's Annie Hall."
Rosa Clará isn't afraid of trends — in fact, she embraces them.
"My favorite bridal trends at the moment are spectacular backs and light volumes, or big structured skirts with couture details," says the designer of her dreamy fabrics. "In terms of silhouette, I like simple, elegant lines — dresses with classic cuts that are adapted to the times and fashion trends that mark each season. I like to present a great variety of styles because every bride is unique and special, so all the trends are important to me when I am designing."

Her top tip? Think about the big picture when creating your wedding-day look.
"My top three styling tips for a bride on her wedding day are not to disguise who she is," explains the designer. "The dress should emphasize her natural beauty. She should always think about the ceremony — the location, the feel, the time of day — and it's very important to make the right choice when it comes to accessories."
