RACHEL LEONARD: Please describe the focus of your collection.
ELISABETTA POLIGNANO: I always aim for the perfection— the best dress made in the best way, beginning with the design, all the way to the finishing touches and the modeling. I always do my best, which is why it’s important to be involved with every phase of design and creation.

RL: What is the inspiration for the upcoming season?
EP: My 2019 Bridal Collections are a tribute to the figure of the woman, the ‘prime mover’ of the world and a boundless source of love and energy. I want to give a strong, revolutionary signal — a declaration of the authentic, a profound renewal of culture and the bridal world — and also portray an act of courage that reveals the most profound nature of being a woman.

RL: What does it mean to you to show in New York?
EP: I love New York. Every time I go there I feel amazing because is a very dynamic city in which you can find people coming from all over the world. It’s always very exciting. It’s also very important for my business, because New York is a great showcase in the world, one where I can even find other designers or artists to compare with and learn from.
