Designer Fabric in Verona


In early July my Retreat group visited Manegazzi Tessuti (a fabric store) in Verona. Paola and her mother Daniela spent time with our group, sharing various Designer fabrics with us. We were able to see Valentino, Chanel, Missoni, Pucci, Etro, etc.

Menegazzi Tessuti
Via Tazzoli Don Enrico, 14

What was best, was that we could see runway images of the fabrics in use by the designers. I was completely surprised by a few of the fabrics, and how seeing them in a garment changed the way I felt about them.
To the right you can see Judy trying 'on' fabric by Etro. Below, the store owner Paola is assisting her.






The fabric below is Etro. Judy, didn't you buy this??



This is Chanel fabric, and I KNOW Judy bought this piece, as I was eyeing it also.

To the right below, is the Missoni fabric I bought.

Look at the mess we made.. ah, but it was such fun.



Thank you Paola... we'll see you next summer!

Oh, I must wipe the drool off of my keyboard. The fabric is out of this world.

Isn't it though. I can't wait to sew up my Missoni piece... hmm.. or should I do the Pucci one first?

Sorry.. that was cruel.
(but I will have fun sewing them up)
