Elleremodelista, founded in Pietrasanta 8 years ago by Laura Ciregia, is a passion project driven by a love for vintage and a commitment to upcycling. The production is carried out by skilled artisans in Italy, involving the careful selection of vintage garments, disassembly, and the creation of new cuts inspired by 1960s patterns. The result is the transformation of men’s jackets into women’s vests, tapestries into bags, and old denim jackets embellished with folk embroidery. This innovative approach embraces UPCYCLE FASHION as an ecological and creative fashion statement, breathing new life and style into timeless pieces.
Sartoria Teatrale Fiorentina Massimo Poli:
The connection between theatrical costume and fashion has always been undeniable. From the influential Ballets Russes by Diaghilev and Leon Bakst, which introduced vibrant colors and Eastern folklore elements, to the revolutionary work of Paul Poiret in women’s fashion and stage dressing for Sarah Bernhardt, the impact is profound. Renowned designers like Armani and Versace continue to leave their mark on theatrical costume design. Theatrical costumes are not just tailored for fit; they are modified and repurposed, with fabric, trims, and colors adjusted to suit new requirements. These “used” costumes possess truth and authenticity that freshly tailored ones often lack, incorporating everyday garments transformed into distinctive theatrical pieces.
Crochet Club Napoli:
The Crochet Club, based in Naples, is a group of women who, during the pandemic, reinvented themselves by creating a workshop. What began as a pastime with a few participants evolved into a meaningful job, involving collaborations with designers for Milan Fashion Week presentations and fulfilling private sales requests. This group, bound together by their shared passion for the ancient art of crochet, served as the foundation for the creation of Come Neve. Handmade garments, composed of individual crochet squares crafted by different members, are skillfully sewn together, giving life to two marvelous dresses that became the embodiment of my dance.
