About Antonio


Antonio GualI was born in Havana, Cuba. One of the most romantic cities in the world. There for it is of no surprise that what I chose to design are wedding gowns. I have heard it said that the defining feature of a Cuban is a person who will go to great lengths for a bit of pleasure. Wedding gowns are the perfect way to give pleasure. The main reason I design wedding gowns is because no other garment brings more joy, excitement, and delight.

The very first gowns I ever designed toilet paper was my fabric of choice and Barbie was the bride! I grew up spending lots of my time watching clothes get assembled and I gravitated towards the scraps that would fall from the cutting table. Using the largest scraps to cut I imagined creating wardrobes being made from my scraps. At the end of the day when all the machines were turned off I would start one up and sort of sew. I recall thinking it was not about my sewing, it was more about having my vision come to life.
