Creative Designer, Amsale

I do my best when Iím really under pressure, and my output accelerates as I get nearer to the collection. But Iíd have to say that my main inspiration comes from the bride, her style and personality, her lifestyle and individuality. It all starts with her. My first vision for a design can come anywhere, anytime, but it tends to happen when Iím alone and undisturbed. Then the process steps up during draping when I get excited and energized playing with the fabric. Working with the patternmaker, working with the beader, actually touching the fabricónow my juices are flowing. So every creation begins with an appreciation of one unique woman, and finishes with the fabric of her dress at my fingertips.
