" The butterfly effect is real, and this time the universe got it exactly right."
"In a city of 8.4 million people, I found my person completely unexpectedly in a crowded West Village bar.
It’s crazy to think that if I had left the house 30 minutes later, or if someone hadn’t spilled that drink on me (for which Mark apologized) or if I had simply stayed in (like I really wanted to),the entire course of my life would have changed."
Design Process: Maja
In his recent Maja collection, Antonio features more lace and romance than in any previous season. Here, we dive into the fantasies that play out in his head as he imagines the type of woman each gown embodies.
When did you last have butterflies?
Inspired by flutters in a bride's stomach, Antonio compares the metamorphosis of butterflies to a bride's transformation. Once a single woman, she becomes a wife in an “ephemeral and dramatic celebration” – the wedding.
