Private dance

Published October 19, 2012 by Amorosa

“We shall never forget our first love. The heart of Russia won’t forget you. And you, my heart will never forget you.”  (Serge Lifar to Natalie Paley, Countess Natalie Pavlovna de Hohenfelsen)

 

 

A love that defied the time and social rules. In a time of great changes and transformations. Just imagine that this couple would enter the party…

She…the embodiment of royalty. Sensuous and glamorous, delicate but strong.

He…gracefully leaning towards her…like in a private dance…

The private dance is just starting!

What about you? Who would you choose for a private dance?

How to create a dress?

Published May 24, 2012 by Amorosa

I always believed that when creating a new look the couturier has a great importance. And this fact is true. He does. But I discovered today that one secret is the inspiration.

Of course you have some ideas inside of you of what you want to achieve, but mainly the best and hardest part is to let the material talk to you. To listen what the material wants to be transformed into. This is one way of creating. And this can be extended to every other domain of your life.

So, who feels is prepared to create his own outfit for the stellar party? I dare you to let yourself go and create something amazing, something that was never seen before, something inspirational! Something unique!

Introducing the special guest of this week

Published May 15, 2012 by Amorosa

Dear Friends,

This week a special guest is coming to our party. Let me introduce him, so you have the opportunity to know him better. He calls himself a tailor, but he might be as well, a great couturier…from another place and time…

The first amazing thing you see in him is his simplicity. When talking about his work, his face is illuminated and light appears in his vivid eyes. You can almost feel and touch the passion, it is somehow contagious.

Seeing him at work, one can get a lot of inspiration. The materials transform in his delicate hands, like being alive. You have the feeling that clothes are created by the materials, that human is involved only in helping the creation process taking place. The materials are handled with respect and care.
He always carrie with him a precious book, talking about Madeleine Vionnet, defined as the “architect among dressmakers”…

 

 

… She founded her maison in Paris, in 1912, impressing the world of couture with her totally innovative approach, her sartorial skills and the perfect balance between experimentation and elegance. She liberated the body from stays and corsets, making women’s personalities, their well-being and their dreams the centre of fashion. Drawing inspiration from Greek art, she created garments that clung to the shape of the body, with a fluidity that echoed its movements, in the conviction that dresses must take on the personality of the person wearing them. In fact, she would say, “when a woman smiles, then her dress should smile too”.

 But what I find amazing is the attention given to this book. It is carried in a hand made cover, like something sacred and precious. Almost like a bible. And in some way this book represents his bible.
His work is a tribute to the act of creation. He is aware that creation process is not easy and that implies hard work and commitment.
SO, what do you think that this great couturier is able to invent for our party? Maybe he will appear costumed like a woman or as a character from his bible? Would he make corsets for the guests? Or maybe he will create dresses that smile at the same time with the guests? What would he do? What do you think?
