Annunci

An unusual rainy Sunday!

I love cakes.
To me it’s usually all about eating rather than cooking them.
But sometimes all it takes is a rainy Sunday and i find myself in the kitchen… Voilà!
Strawberry cake is ready! …Yummy!

Vanishing Points …

War is over and, as usual, each dark period is followed by a rebirth.
The collection only symbolically picks the 40’s without following its style, but simply to denote that passage from one period to the other. It represents the creative essence of the awakening, the moment in which the expressive capability expands its horizons beyond the rules.
Just like Duchamp elaborates its works recycling and assembling objects, snatching them from their ordinary use, so the collection collects male and female fabrics upsetting through cuts and lines their original nature. The uptight tweeds are softened by the mixtures with the organza and silky wools; the strictness of the tweeds’ greys is lighted up by their transparency and their shimmering glares. This combination creates volumes of light and shadow in which the gold of both the dots-printed silk and the technical textures flickers.
Femininity is marked by inlays of the fabrics, inlays which shape the dresses’ and coats’ lines with their vanishing point.

C4C Project

I love my job, especially when it is a way to support a good cause!
Some young fashion designers and I in collaboration with CNMI have designed some graphics for a T-shirt for a very special and interesting project, named “Connect4Climate“.
Working for such an important cause was a real honor for me! The campaign was aimed at raising awareness toward climate changes and if you’ll visit their website you will find excellent and easy advices to improve globe situation. For the advices and further information here is the project’s link:

Here below, you will find my sketches and some pictures of my graphics that were chosen to be presented during MFW.

Diary of a fashion designer… last day MFW

And finally the last day arrived!
It’s the day to say goodbye…
Everytime I’m a little bit sad but in the same time I can’t wait for starting a new collection!
It’s crazy, I know,  to feel all these different sensations in the same moment, but it’s that happens too in the incredible fashion world!

All is ready!
The clothes are clean and ironed, the shoes are perfectly aligned, the models are so charming with  their make up and  Forties  hair  styling.
I deeply breath, it’s my moment, my special moment, my first fashion show!
