Fashion Flagship: Rosa Clará in Makati, the Barcelona-born Bridal Brand’s Only Shop in Asia, is Now a Decade Old - Lifestyle Asia

Brides of the rich and famous have worn Rosa Clara over the years.

It has been 10 years since Rosa Clará Philippines first opened its flagship boutique at the Residences at Greenbelt. Since then, the Barcelona based bridal house, which recently celebrated its 25th year in the industry, has become the go-to-brand for many Filipina brides, including the likes of Bianca Gonzalez Intal, Patti Grandidge Herrera, Bea Soriano Dee and Martine Cajucom Ho.

International celebrities and European royalty have also chosen this designer for their weddings. Most recently the brides of international athletes Rafael Nadal and Leonel Messi have walked down their aisles in Rosa Clará numbers. In 2019, Princess Stephanie of Monaco’s son Louis Ducruet married Marie Chevallier who wore three Rosa Clara dresses for her royal wedding.

The Spanish bridal brand is highly visible with stores across the globe, usually found in prime shopping districts like in Rue Fabourg Saint-Honore in Paris, where it sits right across from the Palais Elysee and in the Nakheel Mall, Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. 

While there are also stores in the USA, England, France, Portugal and of course in multiple provinces of Spain and in South and Central America, the boutique at the Residences at Greenbelt is still the only branch in Asia. This is why the Makati store has also been catering to not just Filipina brides but also to clients from Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, Guam, Thailand, and Vietnam.

Spoiled for choice

At the Makati showroom, hundreds of samples are available with a wide range of styles, tastes and budgets. With a specially trained in-house tailoring team, gowns are only touched by Rosa Clará professionals and no part of the process is outsourced. From the creation to the final alterations, you can be assured that your gown is properly cared for and handled by only members of the team.

The entire process of choosing, ordering and altering a gown may take about seven to eight months, since it takes six months for a gown to be made and delivered from the headquarters in Barcelona. However, given that many brides nowadays are choosing to go with shorter engagements, it is also possible to choose a gown from the showroom which the in-house team can alter for you.

Brides-to-be are in for a treat because for the 2022 collection, a new line of fresh, whimsical takes on the classic Rosa Clará styles have arrived at the Greenbelt flagship. A play on different shades of white and nude and an emphasis on the use of tulle and intricate beadwork highlight the new collection.
