I want my dress to be…

“I want it to fall straight, be weightless and use some mikado on my wedding dress”. Are you sure? Mikado is everything but weightless so it wouldn’t be a good choice. Do you know the difference between mikado and organza? And between crepe and silken tulle?

The fabrics I seek to design with cover a wide range. The difference between them will allow me to achieve a variety of volumes, flow and design. But I can assure you one thing: the common denominator for all of them is the highest quality.

I wouldn’t say I have a favorite fabric since each one tells a different story.
