Lucia De Monte Udine
Connected to matter. The practical side of fashion
Fashion & accessories design consultant, developer and maker. After 14 years of Milanese studies and experience, I decided to move to Udine.
I love the practical side of my work. I also like interacting with the more crafts side of this profession. I believe it helps creativity, keeps you connected to matter, its beauty, problems and solutions.

Q&A with Lucia De Monte
Your town. And three words to describe it.
Now Udine. Airy, border, unexpected.
Three words to describe your projects.
Tailor made, transversal, essential.
Antique, modern or contemporary?
Tomorrow with the shrewdness, care and details of yesterday.
The most precious item you own?
Fabric scissors, the large ones that cut well.
Where is design going?
Towards awareness. Who’s behind what we buy?
Where are you going?
I’ve got a Daruma doll that stares at me with one eye… I’ll have to free it sooner or later.
Three words to describe Italy.
Spectator, impassioned, mixes.
If not in Italy, where?
50 in the heat 50 where it’s cool, because temperament changes with temperature.
What goes around comes around.
