How it all started?
I have a passion for fashion designing and dress making.
As a kid, I was always found drawing princeses in stunning dresses, and plans of my ideal house.
My formal education regarding the fashion industry consisted in a grade in Industrial Pattern Making.
But I never believed in industrialization applied to clothing.
Instead, I believe we are all unique inside and out, and our clothes are nothing but a way of expressing our true self.
When I opened my little fashion studio on 2004, my work system was designing and making a unique piece for each client, to her measurements.
I was making all kind of garments, from nightime gowns, to cocktail dresses, to business dresses, to wedding dresses, to men’s suits (yes, I love the traditional craftmanship of tailoring, and learned it too).
And why vintage style?
I simply love the glamurous couture styles Hollywood movie stars wore on films. I love the endless fantasy and the beautiful, feminine silouette. I loved the clever, elaborated designs. The elegance and the style.
Fashion history has always inspired me, but mainly the 50s (and the early 60s too).
I ripped some vintage garments apart (yes I know it hurts!) and started studying the patterns and the construction. I got to understand the shapes and volumes. I builded up some prototypes and worked them, changed them and refined them until I got real-50s looking stuff. Yay!
I believe in making things in life as good as you can. In my work, that translates into:
- Designing only styles that I love, that I’m passionate about
- Using mostly natural fibers, and only top quality materials
- Making patterns to each client’s measurements. Only doing so guarantees the best fit
- Making patterns true to the era. I don’t want a poor memory, I want the real thing
- Constructing every garment with the best techniques, as elaborated as needed, and with fine finishings
I also love designing custom styles on request. If you don’t see the style of your dreams, let’s go create it!
I AM a truly believer that 50s styles are for everyone. Everyone who loves elegance, fantasy and a smart sexyness.
