Last year I met a young designer Sara Di Salvo during one of New York’s fashion shows in the Meatpacking district. An adorable girl who speaks English with a lovely Italian accent, I would prefer to speak Italian with her but she said “no, no, no… I have to practice English during the time I’m in New York.” “No problem with me,” I said…
During our conversation I noticed that she was observing me a lot — think she was unsure of what to say. I told her she can relax with me and tell me her story. Mrs. Di Salvo is a 26 years old Rome born Italian designer who graduated from the International Fashion Academy “KOEFIA” of Rome. Debuting her first graduation collection in 2008 at the “Spazio Etoile” her inspirations come from images of her surrounding. During these visual experiences she creates amazing, sensual and elegant collections based in incredible attention to detail in tailoring and passion for fashion. She choreographed her own photo shoots to make sure that everything goes well in expressing “her”. Sara’s dresses were well received and therefore a great success by the public, and caught the eye of famous fashion experts and TV shows in Italy.
She’s been featured in Italian magazines e.g. Sky.it, DMODA, Suitcase and many more. Her gowns are top quality and definitely Red-Carpet style. Soon she will be on everyone’s lips. Below are images of her 2010 new collection Come Un Fiore.
