Manuel Mota, Creative director of Pronovias, Dies at 46

-------

Manuel Mota, the creative director of Spanish label Pronovias, died yesterday at the age of 46. Known for his whimsical bridal and party dresses, Mota served at the house’s creative helm for 23 years and, in 2010, designed the ethereal gown model Doutzen Kroes wore for her wedding to DJ Sunnery James. The circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown, but, as WWD reported this morning, Pronovias’ president Alberto Palatchi stated, “The Pronovias family has lost one of his best loved members. We are left with the memory of so many collections, so many catwalk shows, so much effort and talent. Manuel was a great partner, a great artist and above all, a great person. We will never forget him.”
