Tiziano Guardini Roma
Haute Couture thanks Mother Earth. At the roots of womanliness
The Tiziano woman is in perfect harmony with Mother Earth; the Earth that generated and dressed her, embellishing her with truly marvellous fabrics and accessories, kept in their original form, knowledgeably adapted to highlight womanly beauty and harmony. A wise, natural woman projected into the urban context, maintaining her genuine, disenchanted self. Sculpted Tiziano Guardini garments are made from pine needles, liquorice roots, highly experimental haute couture. His "Three Days to Butterfly" collection uses non violent, "ahimsa silk", a material that allows the silk worms to perform their evolution cycle, to be born from the abandoned silkworm collection. The ahimsa silk threads are reinterpreted with fur effect embroideries; re-twisted or left almost coarse in a harmonic game of shapes, consistencies, volumes enhancing beauty and womanliness. Precious craft work, excessive care over using sustainable, ethical materials and respect for Nature become a strong contemporary element with Tiziano Guardini. The result is sensational and surprising.
