The showstopper, the Diva Goddess, Ayan emblazoned the runway when she mystically appeared and glided down the runway, reminiscent of Cleopatra’s style.  Her mystical aura and beauty arrested the guests.

Each and every creation, accentuated the models curves, falling short at the front, showing off the pair of glittering heels. Even in low light, the creations, embellished with streams of gold sequins and glossy beads shimmered.

Each creation was gold, with range of textures and fabrics, including smooth leathers, lace lurex and jersey. All featured Amato’s signature embellishments, from sequins and spikes to crystals and intricate embroidery thread work.

Amato’s signature gowns have known to have been embellished with sequins, for mermaid dresses with high necks or fluid tulle skirts, crafted with intricate beadworks.

Amato, which means ‘beloved’ in Italian, and the eponymous genius, the much-awarded creative designer of Amato is Furne One.
