The passion for elegance and refined taste creating a sensible style, but at the same time rich in details, are the timeless keys to success of Gemelle Donato Sposa, the atelier dedicated to the bridal world directed by the four hands of sisters Antonella and Mariella Donato. With three shops in Sicily, from Adrano to Catania and all the way to Acireale, the maison is a real laboratory of creative talent and refinement. The gowns are well-finished in every single detail, to exalt the beauty of every bride who prepares to live the most important day of her life.
What is the secret to designing the perfect gown, which transforms every woman into a modern princess?
The trick is to know how to listen to the most intimate desires of the bride and interpret in the best way her needs, so that she’s always comfortably at ease with the chosen gown. Only in this way can she feel like a real princess.
Details, as we all know, always make the difference. What will be the accessory that brides cannot do without on their wedding day?
The bride shouldn’t and cannot do without the veil, in all of its forms, from the most traditional to the most elaborate and innovative. Long, short, wrapped around her wrists or ‘juliet cap’, the important thing is to have one.
What will be the new trends that we will see at Sposaitalia, at the presentation of the 2014 collections?
We can anticipate that the new collection 2014 will forecast the use of precious materials and worked by hand in the typical Sicilian tradition, like Filet lace and the Bobbin lace.
Where do you find the inspiration for new gowns, time after time?
In reality there’s no modus operandi of inspiration. The idea can flow from a strong emotion, a sentiment or mood, and follow a line of memories connected to a piece of music, a trip or even an old photograph.
