5 Things You Didn’t Know About Eva FrancoSeptember 16, 2013
The way we see it, Eva Franco has some explaining to do. Perfectly tailored and totally timeless, her ladylike dresses and party-ready skirts seem to be handcrafted by an especially generous fairy godmother. Curious as to how she knows our exact measurements, we checked in with the LA-based designer to talk shop (and, sure, maybe figure out where she hides that magical tiny-waist wand). While Eva didn’t quite admit to fit-and-flare witchcraft, she did acknowledge a design cauldron of sorts.
On how she knew she was cut from designer cloth: I was seven years old, dressing my family for fashion shows in my living room.
On the joy of cooking: Designing is like cooking a big pot of stew “ until you taste the medley, you’re not sure what you’ve been creating.
On why she’s in the market for a time machine: Time destroys textiles; it’s as fragile as butterfly wings.
Still on her to-do list: Learn to race cars.
Her favorite part about last year: Finding true love.
