Paloma Cerezal is back in telademoda.com. And she is back because she is a classic example in this field. You all know what they say about the trends being passing by, and the fashion is eternal. Paloma took the helm from her father, Petete Cerezal, and continued the saga of a family that has known how to put the quality mark to all their work. Today we are going to a wedding with her, because “a wedding is like a play, everything has to match”, she says in her atelier in Plaza de la Concordia, in the very heart of the city of Seville.
Paloma, the weddings of the year make the diference or not? Of course they do, there we have Meghan Markle’s, duchess of Sussex. The design was all simpliciy, pure lines. She wasn’t wearing a costume; she was dressing in line with her personality. But it is true that a wedding is needed to be seen as a whole; a play where everybody has to represent its role with dignity. Lately the “anything goes” has been imposed, but harmony must rule”.
“There are certain guests who wear black or long dresses to a wedding in the daylight, without having in consideration the place of the ceremony, the time, the context. Not to mention the glitz in certain headdresses…”. Paloma follows her father’s teachings when she claims that the key figures of a weddings are the bride, the godmother and the bride’s mother. The three of them are dressed in her atelier, such as the rest of the guests.
The godmather usually wears a long dress with plain colour, because she also wears the shawl. The bride’s mother is able to play more with her look. But the current bride has changed, she is trying out different dresses, specially those which have movement. The trend now is wearing dresses that adjusts to the body and play with the volumes. They are airy, not so rigid, because the secret is on the fabric: tulle silk and muslin are very used”.
Paloma says that each time we can find more brides getting married in winter. “A winter wedding is very stylish, the fabric normally is white velvet, sober, but you can play with the fur on the guests and the result is very “chic”. In Seville there’s no such thing as bad weather, a very important factor when it’s time to arrange the date. The ceremonies are shining, I know that because I got married in winter”.
She tells brides that they make contact with her the first time eight to ten months before the wedding. The last fitting is one week before the wedding and, following the traditions of the saga, they go and dress their in their places. She advises that they choose a Good fabric. “There is a lot of difference between a good and a bad fabric. The shape, the light… Moreover, the fabric and the good sewing are the bases of my work”.
