Italo Marseglia

Italo Marseglia was born in 1990 in south of Italy. Always fascinated by great couturiers, he started to define his own vision of fashion during scientific high school. Math, logic and culture become bases of his creativity. He moves to Rome to attend IED, and graduates in Fashion Design in 2012. Italo starts his career in haute couture, where he masters the art of tailoring, manual skills and commitment to perfection. Soon he felt the urge to began his personal path, renewing his prospectives and experiences by collaborating with Italian and foreign brands and many institutions. Since 2016 he deals with his namesake brand.

Italo Marseglia’s aim about Fall/Winter 2019/2020 season is to embrace “sustainable fashion” worldwide trend. The brand pretends to reassess fabric industries’ production scraps. Lace swatches will reborn thanks to new sawing techniques and haute couture’s techniques. According to its main purposes Italo Marseglia wants to bring back to life production scraps gotten from precious materials. That’s why the brand starts working on the idea of dealing with old samples of lace become junks to create a “ethical & sustainable demi-couture”! Chantilly, rebrodet, nets and many other kinds of precious laces will be transformed in a brand new fabric; a kind of patchwork fabric gotten through heat-sealing all those scraps. Sophie Hallette, historical French lace producer worldwide famous, generously opened its archives offering old samples to realize this project. All the materials will be then heat-sealed in Italy by Dyloan (Bond Factory) leader establishment of new sawing techniques.
