Bachelor of Fashion Design alum, Maria D’Ocon (2016), debuts her first official bridal collection at The Modern Bride Fashion Show organized by The Bridal Project on May 25, 2017 at 7pm in Miami’s Design District at Gibson Guitars Showroom. “The Modern Bride” collection is her most recent work inspired by the contemporary, eclectic and creative bride who enjoys and appreciates mixing and matching different styles. The designs go from crepes, Chantilly laces, Spanish embroidery, to silk fabrics. This collection is for a bride who wants a sophisticated style while retaining a fresh and natural look. “Every day is a special occasion and I believe this collection can be worn even if you are not exchanging vows,” shares Maria D’Ocon. Her collection will be exclusively available at The Bridal Project Showroom located at 2751 North Miami Avenue, Suite 9, Miami, FL 33127.

Maria D’Ocon’s 2018 Spring/Summer bridal collection shapes an original and different bride ‘who lives life in her own way’. A brave, beautiful and independent bride eager for adventure and new exciting travel destinations, while confident and determined to marry the love of her life.

From Barcelona, Spain Maria’s design dream began with the exploration of creating wearable art. Although her passion and talent for fashion design was a constant presence in her life, her inspiration for bridal fashion was unleashed when she landed her first internship at Pronovias, the prestigious bridal house in Barcelona.

Shortly after, Maria created her first collection inspired by the aesthetic themes of nature, patterns, and Spanish traditions. That collection was later selected to showcase in New York Fashion Week 2016 NYFW.

D’Ocon prides herself in designing unique pieces with the highest level of craftsmanship that can be worn more than once, and not just your wedding day. Each Maria D’Ocon dress is beautifully tailored to a distinctive and sophisticated design. The process all begins with a sketch and hand-made fabrics from Europe, leading to the creation of signature laces carefully sewn together for an impeccable design.  Maria D’Ocon’s exemplify a modern and exquisite attention to detail that can be celebrated during any special occasion by enhancing the beauty of every woman. “Creating is my medicine and I love to share it with the brides, and inviting them to be part of this beautiful process by mixing and matching designs,” said D’Ocon about her passion.
