Here is my new jacket. Wonderful, full of details, exquisitely garnished, and most importantly, it fits me perfectly, like if it was designed and sewed on me. Wow, how did they do that?

Probably, more than once, this is what we thought after having bought an item of clothing that we really love, kept by the curiosity and the desire of knowing what is behind our cloth.
Let’s discover this mystery, then!
For the fashion lovers and for the haute couture aficionados, here is a collection of videos, a web episode describing how an item of clothing is made. From the thought to the fabric choice, from the idea to the creation of a wonderful item.
This sequence of photos and videos will be a weekly appointment that was born looking around Gil Santucci laboratories.

Merry Christmas from Gil Santucci!
