From bust to hips, each dress is tailor-made to suit the wearer alone, as each is made-to-measure… this fact strongly links her to tradition … “made-to-measure” is our high standard of quality.
“My ideas come from observing the fabric and the person, this is how I develop the most suitable dress; by looking at the fabric I can create a model and the possible recipient among my clients. I work directly without any paper pattern, cutting the cloth directly: this also ensures I never make two similar garments…. the process is still strictly by hand.
When people ask me for a dress that is the same as the first one I made, it will never be identical… this is also because of the craftsmanship nature of the process, in line with my uniqueness … Many of my creations are not born from drawings, but by building the dress directly on the mannequin, so my seamstresses follow a method that differs from the traditional one… “
