The Spanish designer headed up the bridal label for 23 years, having famously created Doutzen Kroes' bridal gown in 2010. He created three collections a year - the Pronovias mainline, a luxury range for edgier brides, and a selection of cocktail dresses.
"The Pronovias family has lost one of its best loved members," Pronovias president, Alberto Palatchi said in a statement, WWD reports.
"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."
