I was 18 years old when I received this proposal from a great designer in Brazil, Alessandra Sobreira, who became a friend a few years earlier. She gave me two packs with different kinds of laces and the mannequin with only the tulle cut, and asked me to develop whatever I wanted in three days. I did it.
What I didn't know was that she was going to send the dress afterwards to the styling department of the most famous Brazilian TV to be chosen by any actress who would like to wear it.
A month later, I was surprised with a telephone call from a close relative telling me that the dress I made was on the cover of a national entertainment magazine.
