Fondazione Lisio’s creations for haute couture, where experimentation with ancient hand-production techniques unites with selection of unusual materials and contemporary design motifs, run parallel to those researched for reconstructions of historic ambiences and costumes, where technical planning and design supported by historical research are fundamental.
Preciously Paris X Fondazione Arte della Seta Lisio
EACH PIECE A ONE-OFF CREATION, UNIQUE IN THE WORLD. Carole Tessier is no longer concerned with making collections, instead expressing herself through exclusive hand-woven materials, without budget concerns, from exquisite fabrics by the Fondazione Arte Della Seta Lisio Firenze to the embroidery adorning these precious pieces is the DNA of Preciously Paris.
Mara Bertoli Private Collection of Historical Costumes
The three costumes presented, all made from LISIO textiles, come from a highly original private collection inspired by the intense interest of its creator – Mara Bertoli – in the history of fashion and costumes. Her creation of historical costumes now became invested with an antiquarian’s determination to ensure that every refined detail was absolutely right for the context in terms of authentic style, textile and pattern.
