The designs of Manuela Biocca are part of the alternative fashion trends (gothic, Victorian, steampunk, romantic) to better provide to contemporary fashion an atypical elegance touch while at the same time remaining feminine and sophisticated. It’s among a classic wardrobe that they will reveal all their splendor, their charm and thus will enhance the personality of every woman.
Manuela finds the inspiration of her collections into past fashions, art, gothic literature, rock music, cabinets of curiosities, baroque, legends and mysteries and revives the interest for accessories worn by elegant women in days of old: skirts, underbust corsets, hats, hair accessories, lace jewelry, belts, bags and purses, spats and cloaks.
The essence of the brand lies into the soft mixture of textures, contrasts and displays of light: luxury fabrics, lace, handmade silk flowers, jewelry and gemstones are the privileged materials of these designs and chosen with great care.
The designer makes a point of honor to propose only unique or very limited editions handcrafted thanks to her technical skills. The attention brought to details, quality, the search for excellence and creativity are her master words. She desires to present exclusive fashion accessories and gives with each design a numbered certificate of authenticity as for pieces of art.
What is steampunk? Steampunk is a literary genre, a field of science fiction called “Uchronia” (a fiction that permits us to imagine what would be the world if a past event had a different outcome; a time gap, an alternative version of history). Steampunk is strongly linked to the Victorian Era and the fantastic world of Steampunk is linked to the 19ème century industrial revolution. That’s why the setting is made of steam machines, Victorian clothes, ancient cars mixed up with anachronic elements such as computers, new technologies and machines, genetic engineering, apocalyptic setting. You can see that kind of elements in my designs: Victorian inspiration, luxury fabrics, with laces and gemstones mixed with watch mechanism, leather, gears, chains, clock patterns.
