Sartorial bespoke and a young cosmopolitan woman -- how does it work?
Well, the Vacca spring/summer 2011 collection that we just showed at the Lincoln center is exactly about that. Everyone seems to be talking about men's tailoring for a woman... The idea behind our collection is about the quality of fabric and the craftsmanship of tailoring, but in a fashion forward way while still remaining timeless and completely unpretentious. The tailoring is all about heritage, and we decided to add something from my own heritage -- Uzbekistan
handwoven silks with ikat prints. Why not to mix heritage and authenticity and make it modern? To me it is very cosmopolitan.
