La guardarobiera is a visible mender.
With needle and thread, she takes care of the wounds that time and wear trace on our garments.
By exalting the defect, she transforms it into a unique and exclusive detail, to be worn with pride.
She travels and learn abroad, bringing then to Italy the art of visible mending, founding eventually "La Guardarobiera".
She works on commissions for private individuals, she holds in-person and online courses, she teaches at IED Istituto Europeo di Design and she collaborates on sustainable fashion projects.
Revisiting and repairing them, giving them a new life with an eye increasingly far from the philosophy of disposable, acquires an important meaning.
Mending is therefore a revolutionary act."
