The following, presenting a brief synopsis of the various geographical schools of tailoring, should serve as a reminder of the fact that the techniques presented in this book remain very much only guidelines, open for experimentation by the practiced tailor.

Article

Dolce & Gabbana’s spring/summer collection of 1997 capitalized on their strengths. Sensual chiffon hugged curvaceous (but trim) hips and bra straps peeked out from under delicate, negligee-inspired fishtail gowns.
