I HAD BEEN DYING TO TAKE PHOTOS OF JADE AGAIN SINCE I LAST PHOTOGRAPHED HER FOR FASHION GONE ROGUE. SUCH A CLASSIC BEAUTY DESERVES A BEAUTIFUL GOWN, AND WHO BETTER TO DRESS HER IN THAN OGLIA-LORO COUTURE. HIS PIECES HAVE COVERED THE RED CARPET AND TURNED EACH WOMAN WHO WEARS THEM INTO A PRINCESS. HE IS A PANTHER OF DISTINCT TASTE WHO APPRECIATES THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE, LIKE GOOD FOOD, WINE, AND COMPANY. MEET SAM OGLIALORO.
PHOTOGRAPHY, INTERVIEW AND STYLING BY IMZ
My full name is… SAM OGLIALORO. My star sign is… AQUARIUS. I began designing dresses because… I WANTED TO MAKE WOMEN FEEL BEAUTIFUL. I am inspired by… ELEGANCE AND BEAUTIFUL FABRICS. To complete one dress… WOULD DEPEND ON THE GOWN AND ITS DETAIL. IT CAN BE ANYWHERE BETWEEN 25 AND 300 HOURS. In my free time… I ENJOY COOKING AND EXPERIMENTING WITH NEW RECIPES. Right now i am… CLEANING UP THE DISHES FROM A DINNER PARTY WE AHD LAST NIGHT. If I were hosting a dinner party… IT WOULD CONSIST OF AT LEAST THREE COURSES OF GOURMET FOOD MATCHED WITH BEAUTIFUL WINES. My guests would be… PEOPLE WHO ARE SPECIAL TO ME. I can not live without… FOOD... LOL.
"If i was an animal i would be a black panther"

I am the most comfortable… SITTING AT HOME ON THE SOFA AND WATCHING A GREAT MOVIE... FAR TOO MANY TO MENTION. My favourite city in the would is… MELBOURNE BECAUSE IT IS WHERE MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE. If I was an animal I would be a… BLACK PANTHER. The best purchase i ever made was… MY HOME. What is the next thing on your mind... NEW DESIGNS AND MY NEXT HOLIDAY.
