Giovan: Crafting Confidence Through Couture 

For Giovan, dedicated cutter and garment finisher, his passion lies in the pursuit of beauty and the confidence it brings to his clients. A valuable member at the heart of Tahche Studios, we give tribute to his inspiring journey in fashion, filled with learning, passion, and a relentless drive to perfect his craft.

Anything Can Be Learned

Giovan’s love for his profession stems from the continuous learning it offers. 

“I love my profession because it allows me to learn new skills. I’m a cutter now, but eventually, I also want to learn how to sew.” 

While most are perfectly content to stay in their lane, Giovan stands out for his sheer thirst for knowledge. While working mainly as a cutter and garment finisher now, his future remains open to a myriad of exciting possibilities — a prospect that fuels his passion for and dedication to fashion.

Luckily for him, he is surrounded by masters of different crafts within the studio, leaving him with endless opportunities to ask questions and receive guidance. He is able to learn outside the box even as he continues to master his current role.

Guidance and Growth

For Giovan, the fulfillment he currently finds in his work is deeply tied to the guidance of the master cutter. 

“Through the guidance of our master cutter, I learned many things and have improved a lot.”

Despite his hunger for knowledge and the expertise he has developed through the years, Giovan remains humble in acknowledging the value of the mentorship he is currently receiving. In fact, it has inspired him even more to fill up his bucket of knowledge, try new things, and achieve greater heights.

The Sophistication of Lace and Gazar

Giovan’s current favorite materials to work with are lace and gazar. These materials, known for their delicate beauty and luxurious feel, allow Giovan to create pieces that exude elegance and sophistication.

Quite a reflection of his cultured character, if we say so ourselves!

The Challenge of Embellishment: Crafting Perfection

One of the most challenging tasks for Giovan is embellishing a couture wedding gown. Yet he goes at it with determination any chance he gets. 

“My goal is to make it look beautiful and for the person wearing it to be comfortable.”

According to Giovan, the placement of appliques is crucial; a misstep can lead to dissatisfaction, which can make the hard work of creation moot. Still, Giovan thrives on this challenge, striving to achieve perfection in every detail. The goal? Making each bride who wears his creations feel like the belle of the ball on her wedding day.

Dreaming of Drapes: A Vision for the Future

Looking ahead, Giovan dreams of working on gowns that showcase draping designs. These designs, characterized by their flowing elegance and intricate folds, for him represent the pinnacle of couture craftsmanship.
