About Amato Couture by Furne One:
Filipino born Furne One is the formidable creative force behind Amato Couture. From his atelier in the Al Hana Centre in Dubai, Furne has been actively plotting (fashion) world domination with collections that combine an insouciant eloquence of style that harks to a bygone era of opulence and decadence. His exquisite gowns are definitely not for shrinking violets! They (the gowns) are a melding of costume and old world charm; boudoir couture with a high diva quotient perfect for Oscar nights and occasions which call for full-on wow factor!
Last year, PROJECT RUNWAY host and supermodel Heidi Klum came a-calling. Intrigued by his particular brand of surreal fashion, Heidi invited Furne to design gowns for all the 18 models for her show, "Germany's Next Top Model". He became an instant celebrity in Germany; with publicity in top German newspapers and fashion magazines. Heidi Klum has invited him again for this year's show.
