Nanni Strada - was born in Milan, is famous for having brought the language of design to dressmaking. Her studies of the geometric dress that does not require cutting outstripped the rules of tailoring and trends. In 1979 she won the Compasso d’Oro prize for her project “Il Manto e la Pelle” (cape and leather), to which the first piece of clothing made entirely without stitching belonged. The transversal nature of her approach, firmly rooted in the principles of industrial experimentation, has always been characterized by a surprisingly concrete approach. During her career she has worked with European and Japanese fashion companies and has designed compressible “travel” clothes which have been copied all over the world.
