Rock the Frock are so, so proud to be an Otaduy stockist - in fact, we're so proud that we just don't want to share them, so we are actually the EXCLUSIVE Otaduy stockist for the UK.
Otaduy dresses are cool, unique and beautifully made. Every piece is hand made, by highly skilled women, in Barcelona. And we say women because, so far, the entire company is made up of female workers.
The brand was founded by Carolina Otaduy after she made a wedding dress for her friend. People liked it so much that she sat down to design a full line and Otaduy was born.
Everything is done in-house, from design to manufacture, and that's because Carolina believes that it is a privilege to be a part of someone's love story, and strives to honour that privilege. "Love can change the world; it's one of the most powerful feelings... it flows, on a vibrational level", says Carolina, and this energy flows through Otaduys dresses, from designer to pattern cutter, to seamstress and, finally, to the bride.
Design wise, the focus is women who want to be themselves on their wedding day. Women who don't want to feel like they're wearing a costume. Inspiration comes from music, films and art - all the good stuff.
"I always believe our business should be socially responsible".
Not only does Carolina focus of quality of work, she also focuses on quality of employment for her staff. Carolina is proud to be able to employ people, to create jobs, and particularly for women - Otaduy employs many women who have worked hard, developed skills and then, after starting a family, found themselves unable to use them in the creative ways they would like to. Now, these skills and the love behind creating, are channelled in to Otaduy's peices.
