– How were your beginnings in the world of fashion?

We started 14 years ago by our designs based on the style that we like. At first we just design casual or sport clothes, but we realized there was a gap in the segment of dresses for weddings guests, bridesmaids and of course brides.

12

– How do you get the inspiration?

We inspire each collection exclusively on how we see our clients, we think that in designs and cuts which can favor our clientes, and we know from our experience, that you feel well,  when you are all combined with a colorful mix that you never imagine that it’s cool.

– Do you remember the first piece or garment which you created ? 

  Yes, it was a sport jacket which was completely  a basic garment during a long time. Of course,  we quickly made ​​the dress version.

– What kind of woman goes David Christian? 

David  Christian goes to a woman who loves to dress classy but not overdone, who appreciates the design and color combination, who count with  us and put your trust in David Chrsitian, knowing that your dress will be special, take care of all details to go perfect and she will be the prettiest in the wedding

– What is the reason you began to design also for brides? 

  We started making wedding dresses as soon after the first collection of prom dresses, but really sice de Maria’s weddings, almost 6 years ago… Since Mary’s wedding was when we began to meet more people. Her wedding was published in  Telva Bride’s magazine and it was a bombshell because the dress was perfect and  she also had to leave home wearing a pair of sneakers because it had rained a lot. For years they have been asking for that dress. It caused a sensation so simple but well-cut.

– What is the difference between David Christian and the  other wedding dresses proposals that  we can find in the market? 

  David Christian is different from other proposals in the infinite of possibilities which the bride  has to make  the dress of her dreams, we advise her,  We tried on them  the pieces  of the dress  got to see  the effect of a dress according to what each wants .we finally got that look as if they were going out with the dress in that moment .

It was a decision that we made a few months ago, It made ​​us very excited to do the catalog in New York, This was our dream and finally  it comes true. There was an exciting experience, a great marathon because although we are designed  the locations in that big city it was a madness  we were very lucky with the weather and we went all well (we must be said that we get a great make-up artist).

Andrés Sardá’s interview

Andres Sarda is a Spanish fashion brand of high-end lingerie created by the catalonian Andres Sarda Sacristan, a revolutionary  of the intimate fashion in our country, a  perfectionist man , who always knew how to stay ahead. Currently his daughter Nuria Sardá is the Creative Director of the brand.

The creation of the company was at a time when lingerie pieces were made ​​of almost orthopedic functionality criteria, regardless of aesthetics. Sarda opted for the comfort and attractiveness. In 1965, started exporting to France with clients such as the Galeries Lafayette and Printemps.

Andres Sarda creates luxurious lingerie and swimwear in the context of a  city  Cosmopolitan and avant-garde like Barcelona.  The swimwear fashion of the brand is elegant and attractive. It responds to the need of today’s woman. Exclusive prints on fabrics of the highest quality and ways that enhance the feminine silhouette.

Textile engineer from a family with strong roots in the Catalan textile industry, Andres Sarda, started his own company, where creativity, excellence and novelty of the materials, the love for  the risk in the design and the  vocation  of wondering  , are the strokes that define the style of the products of this company.

 

The brand has its own shop located in Madrid and more than 400 multi-brand outlets, with a greater presence in Germany, Belgium, Spain and France.

There’s a woman before and after Andres Sarda … We are going to discover the brand that revolutionized Spanish and international fashion.

– How is the woman that wears  Andres Sarda?

  She is a woman of character, who holds the reins of her life.  She knows what she want and  she doesn’t need the approval of others. She is a woman with a taste for exquisite, who appreciates  the detail and is sensitive to the creation and fashion.

-Where do you find your inspiration?

In all that surrounds us. We try to live the most enriching experiences, surround ourselves with positive people, creative, different, we provide new insights, traveling, learning, never lose curiosity, work with the best European suppliers, the most creative. After that, let the ideas flow.

– What is the fabric or material that you  most often works in your collections?

  Without any doubt the leavers lace. For us it is the star fabric A work of art with centuries of history, allowing us to draw on the body of the woman. Furthermore our textile tradition is the world of the mantilla,  so the lace  has always been our raw material par excellence.

-Andres Sarda’s designs are internationally known for contributing to women’s lingerie sector technological innovations such as the incorporation of Teflon, Nylon and Lycra. What accounted for that time those change in fashion?

I think it was one of the great milestones in the history of fashion. Today we can no longer imagine the clothing without Lycra. In lingerie and swimwear is even more important. A garment with Lycra fits better to the body and moves with it.

 

– What is your vision of the luxury sector at present?

I like luxury and excellence, love of detail, so exquisite … pamper, take care of  all aspects. In our case, creating garments designed and manufactured for satisfying in all aspects, fashion, comfort, quality, fit, image … Luxury never as ostentation, but as something extraordinary. There are luxury in all made ​​with love and dedication.

Do something extraordinary for someone to fall in love with this garment. Every time we see  that someone  who are wearing our collections are happy. If addition is someone famous and we see it in the press … even more.

 

– You told in an interview that you   have to be constantly well synchronized, to know what women want, even two years ahead How do you manage to always be trendy?

It is our job. It is an evolution season after season. It’s what we talked about before inspiration. We have to be connected with reality and intuit in advance to where society will move.

 

   

– How would you describe today’s woman?

Very diverse. I think now if there is a feature that differentiates us from previous generations, perhaps it is that we are essentially free.

– What can you tell us about your swimwear Spring Summer 2013 and  lingerie collection for autumn winter?

This year our swimwear collecion is inspired by the actresses of the 60 that transmitted a unique glamor. The crochet with natural pearl accents, sailor stripes, textured fabrics such as pique, the smooth with jewel detail, cashmere or animal prints are the stars of the collection.

In terms of colors, as we vary the intense orange or red, to pastels like green water very present in the collection. Black and white are always a must. The collection of this fall winter 2014 is inspired by the Muses. Women authentic, powerful and inspiring. The collection is committed to striking color combinations, shocking but always elegant, like burgundy boiler, purple with green moss, gray and red … In terms of forms, bras with top are novelty aspect, and the bodies more trend .As  materials,  we mixed lace with silk and we make embroidered with Swarovski crystal detail …

 

 -What kind of garment would like to design or create?

A garment   one size fits all that favored all women

– Some models who was in your catwalk showing your creations told us that, sometimes it’s difficult

to show  without being vulgar, and you has get it and do it with elegance.How is the preparation of the staging for your shows?

 

It’s very difficult to present a collection of intimate in a room with so many people and a catwalk of 20 meters. We must always have being in mind that the parade must be shocking, but never vulgar, and every decision we made during the preparation of the parade going in that direction. Then assign each parade of the girl that will wear the clothes, we make sure that she like it , she sits favored and have no problem with the garments. But it is impossible to transmit.

– Where we can buy your clothes?

We leave you the site where you can find our shops all over the world
