-A 10-piece collection marrying the enigmatic elegance with signature
Critically acclaimed fashion brand AMATO has unveiled his latest limited edition 10-piece bridal collection titled ‘HOLY KNIGHT’ last 6th October at a widely applauded show at Waterfront Hotel Cebu. Furne Amato’s 2019 limited edition bridal collection for AMATO was an ode to womanhood and its milestones, emotions and battles: “Warrior Princesses, Armour of Strength, The Risks of Passion and Pure Vulnerablity”, explains the Dubai-based designer.
The main show of Weddings at Waterfront, Furne Amato’s creations were set against a clean black landscape partially decorated with white blooms at the backdrop.
True to style, the collection was at once fierce and delicate, deftly employing the house’s characteristic sharp tailoring and haunting elegance to dramatic effect. This season, pagan references, medieval silhouettes, dense ruffles, and pearl embroideries came together in a provocative, but empowering way, highlighting both the strength of women and the importance of vulnerability and emotion. Take the jute sack pieces – used as dresses train, inspired by a medieval bride – which were matched with knitted lace dresses: hard and soft in perfect matrimony.
Here, Furne Amato shares a rare insight into of one of his favorite looks of the season and reveals the couture levels of craftsmanship that went into it.
On the mood board
Furne Amato was inspired by the 18th-century medieval-style renaissance princesses. The portraits of women featured on the limited edition bridal collection 2019 mood board and atmospheric techniques inspired the approach and design of the dresses which became the basis of the collection.
The fitting process
Taking up to three months, the fitting process is exacting work. The intricate creative process begins in Dubai, where embroideries are pinned and fitted perfectly to the dress toile. Then hand-crafted and hand sewn and fitted in the Dubai atelier ahead of the show.
The finished look on the runway
The overly puffed shoulder with ruffles and laced neckline and full skirt with front slit accented with DIAGOLD jewels takes to open the runway show.
This limited edition bridal collection is available at AMATO Couture Atelier, Building 6, 1st Floor.
