Fabiola Pontecorvo _ Architect Designer
Year 2006 A.C. and a degree in Architecture at the University “La Sapienza” in Rome but afterwards I’ve always tried to escape from the technical drawing. How? Developing and creating.
What? Something that no one else could have and in which I could mirror myself: unusual, eccentric and unique objects.
Over time I’ve used different materials, but it has been my feeling with latex that has ensured that my collection of accessories has been brought to life and also my interest in the paper-folding technique that has allowed me to realize eco-fashion bouquets, bouquets that are long-lasting and customizable.
to exaggerate is a form of creativity that belongs to art
Helped by dexterity and creativity, I’ve tried to give a new value to an underappreciated and not so precious material: plastic.
With balloons, new or destined to waste or recovered at the end of a party, I can create innovative objects. Their being easy to be assembled allows me to create various forms and unlimited chromatic combinations, thanks both to the wide range of colours available and to a choice of opaque or satinized finishing.
My formal research has allowed me to realise necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, all of them unusual both to the touch and to the eye. Light, eccentric, colourful and compact that they seems to say: Ec.Co.Ci. (in italian Eccoci means “Here we are”). So takes name, after having taken shape, my unique collection.
Ec.Co.Ci. because they are there to be seen, to give that touch of creativity also to an anonymous look. The collection name has also an onomatopoeic peculiarity: you can also read in it Eccì, that is the sound of a sneez, that stands for a joke that the clowns do, clowns who use a lot these balloons to entertain the children with strange shapes...as I would like to do with my unusual accessories: make the people who will wear them laugh.
Each accessory of the Ec.Co.Ci. collection is handmade, it is an accessory that needs time and precision to be done, it can be customized to your own taste and it is also for this reason that my selection is evolving continuously.
Ec.Co.Ci. or rather Ecc as etcetera etcetera etcetera................
An accessory always accompanies a woman in her simple daily life as well as on special occasions, to give her that little bit more that completes her, that characterizes her, that makes her feeling special.
But especially on a very important day as the one of the great YES!
The bouquet is a precious accessory that you cannot have, all brides have at least one: there's who throws it, who donates it, who jealously guards it with care and who would it last forever.
My bouquet to be Issima (in Italian Issima is the end of any superlative) is an unique bouquet personalized in all its parts and in line with the style of the dress, of the wedding and that reflects the bride personality.
A small object not made with cut flowers that wither but with paper flowers to have it eco-fashion and long-lasting.
There are many types of paper that can be used and endless patterns and colours to choose from: subtle and light colours for a classic bouquet or bright colours for an odd one.
Coordinated with the bouquet other things could be made: flagships for the groom, hair accessories, place cards and why not? Party favors!
Here-hence the idea for the Is.Me collection, because brides who want distinguish themselves with the right accessory are not simple brides but bride-ISsiME!
Is.me: it’s me that is an unique and personalized accessory... just like you want it!
