Luigina, the best and unstoppable 80-year-old tailor

 

my handmade dress

This is an inspiring story of someone who still works in their very senior years, a post dedicated to Luigina.

Do you remember the couture workshop’s atmosphere of which I’ve talked about in the post About Not?

About me

Well, Luigina was one of the girls who worked in my aunt tailor’s shop, and a dear friend of my mom and aunt.

After some years, she started to work by herself as a tailor, now she’s 80 years old and is still working.

The dress I wear in the pics is handmaded by her, it is such a gorgeous example!

I love to work with her becouse she’s so creative and young that every meeting is enjoyable.
