"With time and patience the mulberry leaf becomes a silk gown" - Chinese proverb.
Silk is a fabric for the senses. After so many centuries of usage it's still not lost its mystery. Breathtakingly beautiful, soft, subtle and delicate to even look at, surprisingly resistant in structure, inspiring the freedom of the gesture. I refer this fascinating fabric to the gentlewoman, mythical yet modern, for whom I make my clothes.
