Manuel Mota, Pronovias creative director, welcomes Jared to talk about his latest bridal collection 2012 and the forthcoming Royal Wedding between Prince Albert of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock. In the manner of speech and expression, makes it clear that I love their work, and this is transmitted in the wonderful collection he has designed for this season. Friendly, attentive and very close, Manuel Mota is, without doubt, the designer of bridal fashion.
Since a few years do you think you own collection of Pronovias addition, he has brought a fresh air current When he proposed the project will put conditions or whenever you have left to act freely?
I proposed the project while still looking fashionable, and at first I thought it would not be able to design more than a few wedding dresses, and look at me! Now I can not stop!
Tell me how is the process for making a wedding dress?
I always start with the fabric. Each tissue has a fall and a different behavior on the body, and this marks a particular line from the beginning. Creating a collection is a creative process with a practical purpose: an "aesthetic product." This process involves a great deal of energy, perseverance, work and very excited to find something new, to create the perfect dress.
For you, when is the perfect time to design, when it sits down and begins to translate their ideas?
Any time is good. I think it's a matter of discipline, inspiration does not come alone, you have to look ... anyway I will confess that my mind is more night owl, I like working when evening falls and everything is calm. The hours seem more appropriate for creative work since there is nothing to bounce, you definitely lose focus ... I find evocative night and might even say he has a magic point for me, but also the dawn, the early hours of day, when even "the world has not begun."
For me, the most complete designer of all times has been Cristóbal Balenciaga.
What inspires you to design?
There are many elements that help in inspiration. I'm a fan of the books, the treasure, I love of art, photography, those of fashion, jewelry, etc.. The consultants constantly and always find inspiration in them.
I also love to visit antique stores and find clothes from the 50, 40 or early twentieth century and find ornaments, embroidery can reinterpret today. Something caught my attention lately is the famous auction of Audrey Hepburn dress in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" which suggests a return to the 60, the pure and simple fashion, the essence, and that suggests a whole new line.
What are the designers of reference?
For me, the most complete designer of all times has been Cristóbal Balenciaga. It was and remains a great reference for me since I started my career in the fashion world. But I must admit that I have always admired the style and Valentino dresses. We had the great honor of having your wedding in exclusive online and collaborate with him has been a great privilege. His clothes off elegance, glamorous, high quality fabrics ... is a great teacher of fashion, a great reference for me to follow.
You say that the bride is the closest thing to haute couture. Why?
Because today the only business where you can use very good fabric, making patterns and prototypes on the dummy without looking at the costs, working with new volumes and experience really ... is in wedding dresses. The pret-a-porter street is much less rewarding, the bride is the closest thing to haute couture.
What are your favorite fabrics?
Any tissue seems to me a challenge. I like to start by the tissue collections, see their movement as it slides through the body, its behavior with other fabrics ... How has been used and how I can use me in a new and surprising. This season we have opted for silk tulle, I love about putting yards and yards of tulle and achieve high volumes, ethereal, moving masses ... lgrz, tasaeca TRANSPARENCY and review Josefina type silhouettes, silhouettes or revise empire seam fifties but with a new vision, renewed. Another fabric that I love the lace, chisel with it the female body, find new results and get them to move without heaviness.
In 2012 the new collection we've seen several feathered creations why should have chosen a detail as risky?
I always look for the effect of "surprise," everything has a reason. Art, ballet, the "black swan", was the parade theme this season. It all started with the collection of progress presented in January 2012, before the premiere of the hit movie of Natalie Portman. The white goose feather marabou (feather is a very fine movement) had been little used in wedding dresses ... only occasionally in high fashion. I looked and embroidered trim bodies as a wonderful base of corsets, searching and rescuing crafts that dignify the seam and the construction of wedding dress, making each piece a unique and different clothing.
The entire sample, what is the design you like and why?
Well, I do not know ... I find it hard to choose, perhaps the design with which Kurkova closed the parade. And he had expected and embroidery workshop reached. I knew that I wanted to dress Karolina with a shirt dress, something alternative and very mine, plus I wanted to see his beautiful legs, so we fake the effect of nudity.
Was made to hand over his body, as if it were a second skin, the day before the big day, with the clock running and a lot of nerves, we got a wonderful design. The workshop worked through the night, and the anonymous and hands-hands magic Pronovias my dream came true: Karolina closed the parade getting dramatically than 1800 people were lifted, amazing! .
What is the perfect complement to a wedding dress?
Personally I think the veil, well chosen and that the suit case is a perfect complement, and also favors only this time a woman can wear it.
We have seen traditional veils that cover the face and mantilla veils which of the two recommended?
Depends on the bride, the type of wedding dress. Either one or the other, are essential complements to achieve a total look for my course!
How would you define your collection 2012?
As might be described as a collection of pure and delicate lines, inspired by the silhouettes of haute couture in the early 50's, with soft fabrics and ultra-feminine necklines aimed at breaking an elegant wedding with classic style. There are two key elements that stand out and convey the entire collection: tulle and star fabric, and feathers in all their possible variants.
Charlene Wittstock to ever see it more in the future and more Grace Kelly role.
What gives recommendations to all those brides who want to be perfect on your wedding day?
A bride has to emphasize that that is more beautiful and can look over the wedding day. Many of them know their strengths, but which do not help them to find what he favors a base to try different styles so that they feel themselves, that are natural, and above all enjoy your big day.
What familiar face would like to wear the day of your wedding?
Any bride who has to come tomorrow. All brides are challenging, is more, the biggest challenge. Looking to be beautiful, to look your best, make a dream ... and you are their ally. All brides create illusion, the illusion of offering her dress and see reflected a satisfied smile on his face.
Within a few months back to have another royal wedding, that of Albert of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock. How to design the future princess dress?
With a very simple and stylish. It seems right choice for Armani needle. His appearances since designer dresses, are contributing a more refined, simple and elegant, something that is difficult for a woman as tall and athletic as the future princess. Every time I see it more in the future and more Grace Kelly role.
