How three sisters came to dress the brides of the century
How did a Sorelle Fontana bridal gown come into being?
There were endless fittings in front of the mirror. With great skill, Zoe did the cutting with her golden scissors, Micol was in charge of the design and Giovanna took care of the proportions….that is how their wedding dresses were shaped to fit like a glove.
The Sorelle Fontana wedding dress was built up in stages, a characteristic of haute couture. The fashion illustration is often only the starting point: the embroidery, the satin insert, the layers of gauze lining, the strategic solution to adept the dress to the figure of the person destined to wear it: these are the rules for a perfect wedding dress.
