Finally after 12 years of absence from the catwalk, Pedro Palmas chose GCMCBridal to stage his impressive comeback. Now in its third year of operation, GCMCBridal presents the fabulous bridal and evening wear collections of both local Canarian and national designers. This year the event also featured a special section showcasing new and emerging talent.
As for Pedro Palmas; his collections have always shown his interest in geometric cuts and volumes and his capsule collection at GCMCBridal was no different. At the over packed show, Palmas gave us a taste of his classic femininity, punched with that wow factor that only he knows how to produce.
The first three romantic nude coloured pieces in silk Lycra had a definitive 'Hellenic' look, and were followed by six more pieces ranging in colours from delicious aubergine cotton to almost claret red satin. The stunning gowns were accentuated with high thigh cuts, off the shoulder decoltes and 50's style suits and trains.
But for me it's in the bridal and red carpet pieces where Palmas’ fastidious workmanship really shines through. You can see it in the selection of harlequin sequinned geometric cut dresses floating on quasi see through black mesh; and you can see it in the pearled guipure french lace on voile, in cut away tops and the final elegant wedding piece.
With individuality in mind it's worth noting the collection’s unique customisable vests. Like the LBD or the 'Marron' of Balenciaga, this vest is a wardrobe staple that Palmas will make customisable with fringing, zips, different colours – we can't wait!
Palmas accessorised the collection with earring and cuffs from Flori Gomez's collection as well as spectacular brooches from his own studio.
