The phone rings just like it rings everyday, but this was a very special calls from the past. A warm female voice calls my name and I have no idea who I am talking to. She is enigmatic and I am intrigued, she knows details of me and I have no clue who she is. Then one name, one place and the picture is clear. She is Franny, a girl born in an Italian family living in Virginia, now a mother of three kids. She was in her early twenties when I met her and designed her wedding dress when that time arrived.
From designing only a dress, we ended up creating the entire wedding color scheme and style together. Her colors were black and white, she chose a very stylized and modern décor. The dining area of the hotel she engaged for the celebrations was stunning! White tablecloth, black linen napkins, black water glasses and crystal all the others, black handles tableware with silver metal parts. Black chairs and white seats, white flowers of different kind had one black rose in the middle of the arrangement. Bride’s maids were dressed in black with white corsage and silver jewelry, white hats and black sandals with rhinestone.
My dress emulated a butterfly, of course I designed it and was black and white as well. I am in the photo with the couple and the Italian seamstress. I tell you the entire setting was stunning!
Pictures? I wished my pictures of that fantastic event were still with me. I was young and never thought I needed an archive of pictures when I was conquering the world. These are the only photos I have left of that day.
I am still designing fashion without the pressure I had then. Now I take care of high-profile, professional clients’ personal image, their colors and their wardrobe recreated completely new when needed. Ciao,
