Eleven island designers will exhibit their latest collections in a runway show at 6.00pm, Friday, 27 October.
This weekend, Adlib Moda Ibiza is heading back to Madrid for ‘1001 Bodas’. Aimed at freewheeling brides-to-be around the world, the wedding products and services expo will feature designs from the likes of Piluca Bayarri, Tony Bonet, Isabel Castellar, Ibimoda, Linnea Ibiza, Vintage Ibiza, Ivanna Mestres, Dira Moda Ibiza, Elisa Pomar, Luisa Tur Adlib and Virginia Vald. Espardenyes Torres will also collaborate.
27, 28 and 29 October, as Spain’s mammoth wedding trade show takes over the IFEMA convention centre, the model brides-to-be of Adlib Moda Ibiza will be wearing more than just white. “Designs,” assures Marta Díaz, “will be colourful”. Ibiza’s secretary of interior, trade and industry trumpets “romantic dresses combined with trousers and versatile pieces which, while designed for brides of all stripes —hippies, bohemians, rockers and classic-fashion fiends—, still remain true to the island’s tradition of exclusive, handcrafted and locally-made style. To that point, the Ibiza Council is promoting a fashion show that will take place on Friday, 27 October, at 6.00pm, where crowds will be treated to the latest haute-couture creations of the expo’s eleven designers.
Meanwhile, all weekend long in pavilion 6, stand E04 of IFEMA, Adlib Moda Ibiza bridal gowns will be on exhibit as part of a display by local firm ‘Events in Ibiza’. Sponsors like Hierbas Familia Marí Mayans and Hierbas de Ibiza will also be on hand to spotlight all their most original wedding gift ideas.
