Italian Couture- Gattinoni

Studing fashion as I grew up I know that Milan, Italy is the fashion capital of the world. But everday I learn of new amazing Italian masters!

Fernanda Gattinoni, Italian born in 1906 moved to London in the 1920's. There he perfected his interest in design and tailored clothes. He has worked with icons such as Gabrielle Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner, Ingrid Bergman, and Ian Claire.

In the 1930's he returns to Italy. He opens up the couture house, Ventura in Milan. Four years later headquarter are opened in Rome. It not only represented a growing business but a econonic and cultural renewal for the county. An area of one hundred and twenty thousand square meters for workers is set up.

Fernanda Gattinoni dies on the 26th of November 2002 in his home in Rome, he was 96 years old. Today Guillermo Mariotto runs the couture house.
