Impact210: The Magazine recently went behind-the-scenes with New York-based Olympus Fashion Week Spring 2006 designer Joanna Mastroianni. While running from Fashion Week show to show, one collection in particular caught Impact 210’s eye: Joanna Mastroianni. Women’s Wear Daily hails her “The Little Engine That Could.” In our October issue, Impact210: The Magazine goes one-on-one with Mastroianni, who created quite a buzz during Fashion Week with her timeless and elegant couture collection. “We are very excited to work with such a talented designer as Mastroianni,” says Michael Fomkin, CEO, Impact210.

“My goal is to have each individual garment be as beautiful as possible,” assures Mastroianni. “Each garment should look like a work of art, but it’s a wearable work of art, a young work of art.”

Mastroianni has dressed Hollywood celebrities such as Jane Seymour, Angela Bassett, Tara Reid and Christina Ricci. Staying true to her own vision by not succumbing to trends, she explains, “I don’t believe in trends. I believe in timeless elegance. Trends will go in and out. Elegance and beauty will always remain.”

Inspired by the sun and the sea of her native Mediterranean landscape, she embraces both colors and whites. With 40% of the season’s collection being white, the focus was heavily on details and flowing shapes. While she’s busy creating fresh and elegant pieces, Mastroianni has her eyes set on designing for homes in the near future. “What I do is design. I’m at my best when I get to do that. You have to come to an understanding where there’s a harmony between the creator and the product that’s being created. It’s a craft. You have to develop it and understand it. In doing so, you see the results of it.”

And the results are fabulous.
