Manuel Mota (Pronovias) found dead


Quote:
Pronovias designer Manuel, 46, behind the wedding dresses of Doutzen Kroes and Jade Goody found dead in suspected suicide

Manuel Mota, a Spanish dress designer specialising in bridal gowns for top models and high society, has died at the age of 46.
Mota had been the creative director of Spanish fashion company Pronovias for the past 23 years, helping to build the family business into a world brand for wedding dresses.
The fashion house said in a statement that Mota died at his home near Barcelona yesterday.
It did not give the cause of death.
Australian model Miranda Kerr and Israeli model Bar Rafaeli appeared on the catwalks in Mota's bridal creations.
Mota also designed the celebrated dress of Dutch supermodel Doutzen Kroes for her 2010 wedding.
Modesto Lomba, president of Spain's Association of Fashion Designers, predicted that Mota's ideas and dress patterns would one day be studied at design schools.
'He's a reference for wedding fashion worldwide,' Lomba said in a statement.

Media here is saying he was found dead in the bathroom of a health center of Sitges with knife like scars/hurts. Police actually thought he was attacked but they found three letters in his backpack, one for his boyfriend, another one for his family and last one for Catalonia's Police (Mossos d'Esquadra). In the last one he said he was depressed due to labor issues.

^ Oh that is very sad news. It's always tragic when someone takes their own life.

The family didn't let Pronovias assist to the funeral because of what he wrote in those letters. Pronovias is saying they had no problem with him.

They sure don't want the bad press, but with this statement they are letting themselves in a bad position, IMO.
Quote:
Poco después, Pronovias ha respondido: " La compañía no admitirá que se le vincule directa o indirectamente con el fallecimiento de su director creativo Manuel Mota, reservándose todas las acciones legales que fueran necesarias para preservar su honor.
Translation: Shortly after, Pronovias has answered: "The company won't admit to be vinculated directly or indirectly with the death of its creative director Manuel Mota, reserving every legal action that were necesary to preserve its honor".
