    L'Atelier Sangalli: High Fashion Dreams in Milan

L'Atelier Sangalli: High Fashion Dreams in Milan

  • City: Milan
  • Duration: Approximately 2 hours.

This engaging, 2-hour tour introduces you to a distinctive method of clothing production that has nothing in common with the mass produced fashion sold in most of the world today.

Overview

For those looking to cultivate their inner fashionista, a visit to the L'Atelier Sangalli is an extraordinary experience not to be missed. No place else in Milan can you find a fully functioning workshop of haute couture where accomplished seamstresses are busy working at early 20th century, pedal-operated sewing machines, using techniques from the 1950s to create handcrafted clothing with a contemporary air (young designer Federico Sangalli calls this place his "Factory of Dreams").

Throughout this approximately 2-hour tour, visitors are introduced to a distinctive method of clothing production that has nothing in common with the mass-produced fashion sold all over the world today. Here, on the seventh floor of a building on the corner of Piazza San Babila, Milanese high society women come to be fitted in made-to-measure confections where the beading, lace, embroidery, and even the buttonholes are all made by hand. The mannequins are old school, too, not to mention sized to each client's body.

After learning about the history of Sangalli, and seeing its vintage showroom and workshop, it's time for a question and answer session with one of the stylists. You can ask whatever your heart desires: for example, how much does one of these remarkable dresses cost?
