Mariarosaria. Dressmaker from Naples. She started her activity in 1959 almost for fun, following her creative instinct and presenting, in an apartment-atelier in Via Filangieri, a collection that alternated designs of her own with others inspired by designs by Yves Saint Laurent and Ungaro. Since then she has never stopped and continues to be so successful that she cannot meet all the requests for made-to-measure clothes she receives. She has never been tempted to move into prêt-à-porter, and has customers all over Italy; for this reason she’s never been interested in either expansion or the marketplace.
