Inside Amato by Furne One: Autumn/Winter 2015-2016
A Film By Rocco Leo Gaglioti
Furne One, designer for some of the biggest names in Hollywood and some of the richest women in the world. Dressing celebrities such as Beyoncé, Katy Perry, and Jennifer Lopez, Furne One has cemented his reputation as being one of the most sought after designers for providing one-of-a-kind designs for Red Carpet events such as the Oscars, the Grammy's and the Golden Globes.
This documentary film takes us behind the scenes in an exclusive, intimate look inside the fashion house of Amato Haute Couture. We will see how Furne One takes his inspiration from sketch on paper to the final dramatic runway. We will watch as he and his team put together a show that is as original as his designs and the pressures and struggles to make sure it goes off without a hitch. But there is always some little detail to think about, some little moment of panic, and some glimmer of doubt that there will be enough time to pull it off successfully. As we watch the drama unfolding before our eyes, we will see Furne One's angst as he makes sure everything is as perfect as his designs.
