Interview with Camillo Bona and how he met Amal Clooney :
QUESTION: Bona , how did you meet with Amal ?
C.B: This summer she came to me a lady from Rome who asked me for elegant dresses for her and her daughter and she said it was for a wedding . I did not know it, but the wedding was Clooney’s wedding . Amal saw the dresses and asked who had made them .
Q: And then ?
C.B: And she had my contacts and called me . I went to Como , the villa of George Clooney , and I showed my creations , we tried the dresses. She chose five dresses, the first one she wore it in Greece , right after her wedding .
Q. So you created this beautiful contact . She also saw the new collection .
C.B : That’s right , she chose a dress seeing only a sketch . A great satisfaction . Yes , I’m happy because she is exactly my kind of woman . She is not only a woman who just needs evening dresses , she is a working woman , a lawyer , who needs to be elegant and refined .
Q: What did she say seeing your creations ? C.B.: She said ” finally something diffrerent ” because it is currently difficult to find special clothes for the day. She always told me : “I’m a lawyer , I have a job , I need beautiful clothes but wearable.”
Q: How is it to dress one of the most admired women of the moment ? C.B : Amal is a person who helps a lot . I had designed a simple white & red cotton dress on anyone that would look like a normal dress . About with Amal it was different , she seemed Jacqueline Kennedy . She wears the clothes , that’s the beauty : the dress doesn’t arrive before the person, but Amal’s personality ,.
