WHAT MADE YOU DE­CIDE TO BE­COME A DE­SIGNER? I grew up sur­rounded by fash­ion. I had many of my clothes made for me by my late aunt – an amaz­ingly tal­ented seam­stress – so, from a young age, I would choose fab­rics with her, se­lect colours and sit on her cut­ting ta­ble to watch the end re­sult emerge. From that age, I knew I wanted to be­come a fash­ion de­signer. WHAT IN­SPIRES YOU? Many things... art­work, na­ture, movies and his­tory, to name but a few. I also al­ways try to imag­ine what kind of woman I’m de­sign­ing each gown for. The bride is al­ways at the fo­fore­front of my think­ing. DO YOU HAVE ANY TREND PRE­DIC­TIONS FOR THE YEAR AHEAD? Sil­hou­ettes will be ei­ther sleek and slen­der, or full and vo­lu­mi­nous. Sleeves have been slowly com­ing back and they will con­tinue to be a style trend for 2017, but they will be light. Fab­rics will be soft and fluid and the wow fac­tor willw be in the amaz­ing in­tri­cate de etail­ing. WHAT WAS YOUROUR WED­DING DRESSSS LIKE? I had to have two go owns! My first gown, for the for­mal lities, was made of beau­ti­ful ivory silk k duchess satin, Swarovski bead­ing anda a full A-line skirt. I then changed d into a long Swarovski crys­tal, fu ully-beaded slip dress for danc­ing th he night away. I felt beau­ti­ful and gla amorous – they were per­fect. DE­SCRIBE THEE SOPHIA TOLLI BRIDE.
