Since being invited to Miami Fashion Week 2009 where he delivered a show stopping 39-piece collection, Amato Couture’s Furne One is set to storm the UK to expand his international following. The Filipino born haute couture genius will be exhibiting his latest creations at the lavish Charing Cross Hotel at the off-schedule ‘A La Mode’ fashion show on 17th September 2010.
Already a regular on the pages of Hello, OK, Harper’s Bazaar and Grazia, this designer has a strong following of elegant and decadent women across the United Arab Emirates, and throughout Germany. Having been awarded Grazia’s Middle East Style award for ‘Best Regional Designer’, the brands repeated TV appearances on Germany’s Next Top Model (arranged by supermodel fan Heidi Klum) has alerted Europe of his vision and caused widespread interest in his gowns.
Combining a beautifully well blended mix of Eastern styles from his heritage, and Western, from his love for Alexander McQueen and John Galliano, Amato’s jewel encrusted gowns are created “for the strong independent woman who is not afraid to dictate what she wants”. Along with the distinctive style of British fashion designers, Furne takes inspiration from 17th Century couture and cameos, lace and antiques from the era. The elements of mystery they emulate have a clear influence on his designs.
Furne is clearly a man who knows his vision; something defined by his idea of the pinnacle of his career: world domination.
If his track record is anything to go by, once Amato Couture hits the catwalk in the UK, there will be no stopping this unique and talented designer.
