INTERVIEW EYESOVERFASHION #2
Ms. Buracchia thanxs a lof for this interview with our fashion webzine. Could you tell us the origin of your brand DEAPAGANA Italian Latex Couture?
Hallo David, first of all I thank you for your hospitality on your magazine and the opportunity to talk about my work.I come from a family of painters, i’m graduate at Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan and I have been a store manager in Italu and Switzerland for years.These experiences have led me to realize the idea of designing and making my own collection.The Latex is a natural material, not so known in Italy, it leaves a grat freedom of expression and it’s for this reason that I decided to create a brand of latex clothes, giving the opportunity to the costumers to mix my items with fabric and leathe clothes and accessories already in their wardrobe.
What about your new collection? Which are your source of ispiration?
I mostly work with capsule collections of five to ten garments ispired by an idea. Drawing the sketches, create patterns, sewed the latex prototypes, then I look for the models, the photogrphers and the MUA suitable to realise the photoshootings. I also take care of the accessories, pecause the photographs have to be complete and tell a story. I have in mind a collection for a period, then, suddenly, some elements coincide to implement them, others are the result of sudden inspiration, a feeling, a color, a chat and everything that can lead to picking up a pencil and draw something. Some elements that I realize, always recur in my work: the image of a so strong woman, a warrior with machine gun and katana opposed to the image of a ultra-feminine pinup.
How does a woman havo to dress to be sexy, in your opinion?
I am convinced that the elegance is the very essence of the sensuality. Looking at my clothes and accessories, the first thing that strikes you is that quietly fabric could be acchived, have elegant and stylish line, the challange was precisely to take a material like latex, known in a certain environmen, and make it usable by a wider circle of people in different situations. Sexy woman is first and foremost a woman who looks in the mirror and like herselself, sexy is intelligence,play safety of themselves. It’s not the dress to make sexya woman, but the woman to make sexy the dress. Given its, it’s clear that a sensuous dress and a amazink make up make you feel so special and safe: whea I see every woman wearing my clothes and smile in the mirror, this is for me the gratest satisfaction, it neans that my clothes make feel a woman beautyful, attractive and very sensual.
Which are DEAPAGANA’s own goals and future projects?
In an year’s work for this startup I had a lot of satisfactions, I want to continueto grow DEAPAGANA up see it to become a really as a brand not only for latex clothesproduction. I would also continue to seethis growth with the collaboration with magazines, advertising, film and television, work on specific projects and to become a reference point for what concerns the latex products in general. For the creativity and the quality of my works DEAPAGANA could be really a reference point, cause this figure is absent both in Italy and let me say in Europe, too.
