Internationally acclaimed bridalwear designer ROSA CLARÁ was entrusted with designing the wedding dress Mery Perelló wore to say “I will” to Rafa Nadal.
Mery Perelló was not alone in trusting Rosa Clará for such a special occasion. Ana María Parera (Rafa Nadal’s mother), María Pascual (Mery Perelló’s mother) and Maribel Nadal (the groom’s sister), all wore stand-out designs from the Rosa Clará Cocktail Collection.
After several visits to the designer’s atelier in Barcelona, Rosa Clará created two bespoke gowns for Mery Perelló. Describing the emotions such a special moment evokes, Rosa Clará said, “I feel very fortunate to have met Mery and to have designed the wedding dress she had always dreamt of. Being part of this moment is thrilling and a little scary — the responsibility that comes with a wedding like this that receives so much international attention is enormous. The connection with Mery was immediate, as it was with her mother and Rafa’s mother and sister. They’re an extraordinary family and it has been a pleasure to work with them.”
The ceremony took place just hours ago at a military fortress in Pollensa called, “Sa Fortalesa,”
After the ceremony, the bride changed into another Rosa Clará creation.
Rosa Clará burst into the bridal fashion scene in 1995 when she opened her first boutique, in Barcelona. Drawing deeply on her own femininity, fashion design experience and business sense, she brought a breath of fresh air to traditional bridal styling, directly connecting with a new generation of women who wanted more individuality and contemporaneity on their big day. Her innovative creations and commitment to premium-quality fabrics and finishes, strengthened by partnerships with renowned haute couture designers of the stature of Karl Lagerfeld and Christian Lacroix, provided the springboard for the brand’s national and international expansion. A global benchmark today, Rosa Clará gowns are currently available at over 140 own-brand stores and 4,000 outlets in 80 countries.
Rosa Clará, who next year will celebrate 25 years in the bridalwear sector, has created the gowns for a host of internationally famous brides.
