“Last season I shared my love of family and our Italian roots. In this new season, I drew inspiration from my formative years and the integral cities from around the world that has nurtured my growth as a designer.
Join me as I look to my childhood in Buenos Aires, reflect on my time studying couture in Paris, and see how I discovered opulence in Dubai. This season’s collections are a glimpse into my fantasy world from my explorative years and discover how my travels led me to collect the skills I have spent my career trying to perfect.” – Ines Di Santo
Throughout my world travels, I was curious, absorbing everything that I was experiencing. Looking back on earlier days, it was more like I was living in a dream, totally lost in a new world. With this collection, I tried to recreate the mischievous sense of wonder I experienced and approached the gowns with the same carefree sense of playfulness I feel when revisiting those memories. I hope you’ll find yourself transported to my “Wonderland” the same way I got lost in the process of creating it.
