The movement from inspiration to illustration. The selection of materials and textures. The addition and deletion of details. The incorporation of patterns and colors. The creation of lines and shapes through meticulous fittings. Couture is a true art form, handcrafted at the highest level.
Nardos is passionate about developing new materials and using design to evoke the essence of timeless femininity—the perfect blend of Old World romanticism and contemporary precision, united in the creation of perfectly-fitted garments that enhance the elegance and grace of those who wear them.
The creative process is never uniform. “I am constantly inspired by everything around me, especially textiles,” says Nardos. “It is often a combination of materials, emotions, art, and experiences that come into play to create the basis of inspiration for custom couture.”
