About Rosa Clará
Rosa Clará founded her brand in 1995, when she opened her first store selling wedding dresses in Paseo de Gracia, Barcelona. This marked the beginning of an exciting story during which the Spanish fashion designer and entrepreneur changed the rules of bridal fashion for ever, delighting brides the world over with cutting-edge designs that celebrate individuality, romanticism and elegance.
International presence of
Her innovative spirit and commitment to the highest-quality fabrics and production techniques, in each wedding dress that bears her signature, continue to be the hallmark of Rosa Clará today, now a world leader with upwards of 4,000 points of sale in 83 countries.
Having defined its own style, in 2002 the firm began a new chapter via its first collaboration with an international designer: haute couture icon Christian Lacroix. This partnership, followed by other successful relationships with renowned designers, such as Karl Lagerfeld and Zuhair Murad, was a decisive leap forward for the firm.
A benchmark in bridal fashion
With her own collection, Rosa Clará went on to launch each edition of the Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week, the leading international wedding fashion show, surprising attendees with dresses packed with creativity and magic, and introducing new trends designed to make the dreams of every bride come true.
The eagerly-awaited yearly show contributed – and continues to contribute – to consolidating the firm as a benchmark in the sector, both for professionals and for women all over the world. This is reflected in the number of familiar faces, friends of the firm, who look to the designer to dress their most important events: Antonela Roccuzzo for her wedding to Leo Messi in 2017, Marie Chevallier who married Louis Ducruet in Monaco in 2019, and Mery Perelló, when she tied the knot with tennis player Rafa Nadal in 2019.
Wedding dresses and cocktail dresses
With the same aim as when the firm was founded, making women happy with a bespoke design, in 2007 the Rosa Clará Group launched a comprehensive service for brides and their guests with the creation of the Rosa Clará Cocktail collection . And, always thinking of women and their needs on special occasions, the group also introduced collections of bridal accessories and party accessories to help them achieve a total, flawless Rosa Clará look.
