Designer Bridal Boutique Pronovias Is Gifting Dresses To NHS Staff Due To Get Married This Wedding Season
Pronovias, a luxury Spanish bridal atelier, is honouring the health workers putting their lives at risk daily in the fight against COVID-19 - many of whom have had to put their wedding plans on hold.
The brand - which designs dresses typically costing between £1,000 to £10,000 - has created the Heroes Collection, a range of gowns only available to view upon appointment, which they are gifting to workers on presentation of proof of employment.
Artistic Director Alessandra Rinaudo specially curated the collection, described as "beautiful range of stylish wedding gowns for every type of bride".
All hospital-employed brides-to-be employed by the NHS are eligible for a free gown until 31st August 2020. They must also have proof their wedding is planned before the end of December 2020.
The collection will only be available exclusively in flagship stores, which will be open depending fully on government guidelines. Pronovias's only UK-based store is based in London's Mayfair.
To claim a dress, you must book an in-person appointment and select from the stock available.
Rinaudo added: "It is an honour to show my support and raise awareness for all of these women doing their best to overcome this pandemic.
"Love will conquer all."
