Sabrina Persechino, architect, stylist and art lover: this is how she combined her three passions to create fashion masterpieces and the restyling of an historical building as the The Church Palace.
We often hear people talking about ateliers (fashion houses): but what excactly are they? Here in Italy we usually refer to it when talking about craft and artistic studios. There is the painter’s atelier, the designer’s atelier… but maybe, it true meaning is something else. Sabrina Persechino explained us her own version of atelier. She owns one herself, the Persechino Atelier, in the heart of Rome, in a neighborhood curiously named “Clueless fairies of Ozpetec”, a part of the city where architecture, art and high fashion live side by side, creating beautiful masterpieces.
Sabrina Persechino has been involved in buliding renovations and designing for many years now. She is the one who handled the restyling of the The Church Palace Hotel, amazing location not only for a weekend in the Eternal City of Rome but even for weddings, events and special occasions, just like Sabrina’s fashion show. Yes, Sabrina Persechino is both a brillant architect and a wedding dress designer, so in 2011 she found the Persechino Atelier. High fashion is for her a dream coming true, a passion and a source of studies that led her to her debut in the fashion wordl at Altaroma, with a wedding collection inspirade by architectural shapes. During the years, Sabrina Persechino has strengthen her role as main protagonist of Rome fashion world thanks to her linear and clean style, her choice of many different fabrics and her innovative use of geometrical applications, made of glass, metallic foil and resin. Her bride is unconventional, elegant and always sensual.
It was the The Church Palace Hotel the set of her latest runaway show, named “Mono Tona”, where white, black and gray dominate the game. A very unique, essential style, with shapes and volumes inspired by minimalist architecture. It’s not a coincidence that the motto of this fashion collection is Miles van der Rohe’s quote “less is more”. Concision and minimalism: cool fabrics like cachemire and lamè leather are enhanced by perfect design of original inspiration. The choiche of the total black and white, with touches of gray, symbolizes that lack of colours that glorifies the movements and flaying of the fabrics.
