It happened that I did not sew or work on my designing ideas for more than a month. In that time I found myself very occupied by reading the fashion books and considering the way in which my intentions could go – I let the ideas to incubate – and they led me to the designs I will present in this and many future posts. The feminine shape, the whole-coloured fabrics, sequins, ribbons or the uniquely decorated material will become the whole, bounded by two simple rules: elegance and simplicity. More than ever, I am inspired by Dior – the ideas he was working on through the early 1950’s – and I tried to release such feelings in the new period of my work.
These days I am holding in my hands one of the Vogue’s editions about the most significant couturiers of the last century: “Vogue on Christian Dior”, written and systematized by Charlotte Sinclair, pleases both mind and eyes whilst going through the pages; I am so happy to share the story of Dior herein, since my fashion ideas are very correlated with his fashion sense. The story that goes brings so many surprises!
