Luisa Beccaria often becomes friends with her showbiz clientele.

Luisa Beccaria’s designs were given a boost when the world’s most famous women started to wear them.

The Italian designer has become known for romantic and feminine gowns, with many celebrities calling on her when they need dressing for the red carpet. Everyone from style queen Sarah Jessica Parker as her screen alter ego Carrie Bradshaw to Angelina Jolie has worn her floaty designs, and Luisa is grateful for the support.

“When I relaunched myself in New York in 2000 we were very lucky to have the enormous bonus of actress Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie, Uma Thurman, Eva Mendes and Jennifer Lopez being highly visible in my designs,” the dressmaker smiled to Britain’s Hello! magazine. “I adore meeting my clients as that is how I can continue on the right path. Unsurprisingly in many cases they become friends.”

Angelina chose the label when she was promoting flick By the Sea in 2015, in which she worked alongside husband Brad Pitt. The 41-year-old looked lovely in a lightweight nude coloured dress, which was cinched in at the waist with gold belt detailing.

Talking about her love for fashion, Luisa admits it’s her passion for art, nature and life that most inspires her work.

“My visual is a woman who wants to look beautiful, wistful even, in soft pastels and, it goes without saying, my signature flowers. I adore chiffon and rich lace – very, very magical,” she smiled.

“Although my aesthetic is the dreamy dress, it is travelling that has been key to keeping my creativity alive. I am inquisitive and find different cultures fascinating. Russia and Doha in Qatar have had a huge impact on my imagination.”
