Giulielleria by Giulia Boccafogli

After a break of some months, I want to start again to publish my interviews to fashion and accessories designers.
This time I interview Giulia Boccafogli, a 29 years old architect, born and grown up in Bologna (Italy). After the degree in 2006 she started to create very particolar jewels as a second job.
She has taken part in many events, special occasions and fashion shows creating collections inspirited to particular themes.

- Which are your favourite fashion designer and why?

- I have not one favourite designer because I prefer to find the beauty in each creation. Then my style is quite changeable. But if I have to choose someone in particolar, I’ve loved the last year Prada collection. I like so much also Anna Sui and her folk-romantic style, and the elegance of Alberta Ferretti. I like also young designers and handmade items by Cinzia Ornato, Silvia Mazzoli, Vivian Lorca and Drica Dias.
I love to mix griffes and no brand clothes, also bought in street markets during my trips in India, Thailandia and Australia.

- How and when did your passion for fashion start?
- I’ve always loved creativity on fashion acccessories. The specific passion for jewels was born 10 years ago but just in last 4 years it has became a job.

- What do you create?
- I create jewels called “Giulielli” (as my name, Giulia). I have created six collections with different materials such as linoleum, silver, steel, semi-precious stones, mother-of-pearls, copper, silk, vintage buttons: Fragranza, Essenza, Multipop, Silk Shapes, Spezia and Minimal Chic.

- How do you describe your collections?
- I think that the perfect definition for my creations is “ductile”. I don’t want to choose one single style. Every single jewel is carefully made, well-framed and colourful.

- How do your creations come into existence?

- My creations always come into existence for a specific project. At the base of it there is an inspiration that can come from the pictures of a trip, or also from the problem of how to use a specific material. Sometimes far places inspire me; other times some tipe of materials, also unusual for jewels.
