WHAT WAS YOUR MAIN INSPIRATION FOR THIS SEASONS COLLECTION AT NOLCHA?
We were inspired by “Ganutell” which is a Maltese art form where intricate Copper, Silver and Gold wires become handcrafted flowers. These flowers are than carefully placed under a glass dome. They were the Grandmasters; favorite gift to the Popes and Royalty. An artistic treasure still admired in the 21st Century. Opulent and decadent. Fragile and feminine.
WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING ASPECT OF BEING A DESIGNER?
The most exciting aspect of being a designer is that we are always creating. The journey from original idea to the final garment is something very special.
WHAT PIECE HAVE YOU DESIGNED THAT YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF?
We are very proud of our new collection and printed silks but especially proud of our final gown that features an original handcrafted “Ganutell ” necklace.
WHATS THE FIRST PIECE YOU EVER DESIGNED?
The first collection we designed together consisted of several hand painted white dresses, we can’t remember which was the very first one, as this was quite a few years ago.
HOW HAVE YOU GROWN AS A DESIGNER SINCE YOUR FIRST COLLECTION?
Yes we have definitely grown through the years ,as we have found our style and we have made the history and culture of our home country an important part of our work.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO CELEBRATE/RELAX AFTER YOUR NOLCHA SHOW?
We will be hosting a fabulous after party on February 15th together with Nolcha FW , so that is where will celebrate our new collection!
