Fashionista Dreams in Style, Designer Article Series, Part 2

Couture, Couture, Couture – I gotta have me some Couture!!!  There is definitely a theme in the world of Fashion and Couture is definitely one of them.  This article series is being written to allow you a sneak peek into the lives of some of designers that are part of the 2012 Phoenix Fashion Week.  The interviews comprise of candid discussions and questions asked of the designers and my interpretation of their answers.   The write-up will be a summary of the conversation.

Italia Rocks Couture founded and created by Natalia Acosta is a vision of her life since she could remember.  Nothing else has fulfilled her life more than living, breathing, and doing fashion since her earliest memories.  It dominates who she is; what she does daily and actually happens everywhere for her.  Natalia is inspired all the time by colors, pictures, views, fabrics and more.  She fancies no particular fabric and will work with anything from lace, silk and more.

Natalia moved from Mexico and went to college here to develop the knowledge she needed to bring her version of fashion to everyone.  Designers such as Valentino and others who have carried the torch for Couture looks, have influenced Natalia along the journey of her fashion evolution.  What Couture means to Natalia is having that creative freedom to design uniquely so that you can feel different wearing one of her fashionable creations.  The hand craftsmanship and the quality of the creation are important.  Her specialty of course, is the long flowing gowns and dresses that can adorn any red carpet with such glamour that those who choose her fashions will “feel like a Queen” or “a million dollar woman” as they walk down that aisle, runway, or any other platform.

Ultimately, Natalia hopes and dreams that Italia Rock Couture fashions will be worn by the hippest celebrities on the Red Carpet at the Golden Globes, Oscars and become common celebrity wear still with the uniqueness she brands her creations with.  For individuals considering similar pursuits, she says the key to being successful is to be first true to yourself, be passionate about what you do, put all your efforts in everything you do, no matter what it is as long as you are doing what makes you happy.  As an artist you should feed your soul and doing what you love is really what it is about.  Natalia is making others feel special in only the way she can through her love…Italia Rocks Couture!!!
