Your Milano Fashion Tour will begin in Montenapoleone, the heart of Quadrilatero: every corner of this area hides a huge number of ateliers and fashion boutiques, where, for decades, the best Tailor Masters in Milan have been handed down the tailoring art from one generation to another.
We will start our tour and introduce you to Tailor Master work, you will experience all steps of designing the wardrobe:
INTRODUCTION TO TEXTILE SELECTION
Everything starts with the textile selection. The Tailor Master, according to the customer needs and tastes, shows one by one the most suitable textiles for the season and, of course, for the item of clothing to realise. For this reason, colours and measures are not the only aspects to consider when creating bespoke items.
After textile selection, it is time to study the customer body. This is a crucial step that has to be done carefully, in order to take body measurements properly. As we are talking about customized items of clothing, this is the most important step ever. Every effort is made to note down body measurements in the most accurate way, otherwise every mistake will appear on the finished bespoke items.
MAKING PAPER PATTERN
After taking measurements, everything is recorded on a paper pattern that shows the bespoke item project. Only at this point, using the paper pattern as model, the Tailor Master is ready to cut the textile and, then, to sew all the pieces of cloth together.
We will visit many temples of fashion like Rubinacci, Re Ottavio, Bottega Veneta, Fontana Couture Showroom, Moschino and Loro Piana, etc, and will have great time together! 🙂
