See below our chat with Pina on brides, romance & inspiration…
Your first memory of falling in love….
When I noticed Tony looking at my vision in the mirror and I caught his eyes
Your favourite bride story...
I did a wedding for someone with cancer, then I saw her on TV years later, talking about her cancer and how the lady in the bridal store - me - made her laugh when she wanted to wear a tiara and I said “yes you can, we just use some glue”!
A quote you love...
In order for one to be different, one must act differently
Top 3 items on your Bucket List...
Back to Sicily for a year, see how my grandchildren have grown into good people & one more trip to New York
What do you feel is special about what you do?...
I feel every word I say to my Brides comes from my heart, with the best intention I could ever have
Someone that inspires you...
The man that inspires me is the late Spanish designer Balenciaga, he was so true to himself that he would not do just anything
One question brides should always ask…
Can you really make a dress fit well?
One piece of advice for the modern bride about anything…
Advice comes in a very individual form, as every bride has such diverse ideas. Social media has helped and also confused a forward direction for fashion and what is best for a bride. So my advice would be to take it all with a pinch of salt and keep your own image in mind. The same person that gets up every morning is the bride & you are more important than any picture
One tip on how to choose the right wedding dress…
I don’t like tips, I prefer to call it a choice to suit each bride. With going back to couture I am more in tune with the individual need
Your favourite thing about your job..
With my job, you really have to love it all, from the beginning to the end product. The beginning has a high about it, meeting new people, while the end has an amazing sense of fulfilment in achieving what the bride wants
