A new dream come true, through an exclusive collection of wedding dresses from the Atelier Emé archive, purposely reworked in collaboration with mending for good, the consultancy created to offer luxury brands creative and ethical upcycling and design-driven solutions.
Atelier Emé decided to collaborate with mending for good by developing a series of proposals centred on creative, romantic and fun craftsmanship techniques, starting with the dresses from the archive.
This work was undertaken by the design department in the Atelier Emé dress-making workshops, purposely deconstructing and reconstructing the chosen pieces, while on the other hand Mending for Good took care of fabric painting, by Karl Jorns from MK Textile in Florence, hand embroidery, by Donatella de Bonis, and handmade embellishments.
The bridal gowns in the limited edition Re-love collection are also the result of a training course, workshops run by craftspeople and involving the San Patrignano workshop for fabric painting and the Manusa workshop for hand embroidery. The co-operatives benefitted from workshops held by the craftspeople involved in the project to further their technical knowledge.
Re-Love is an incredible co-design upcycle project which involved two leaders of the industry (Atelier Emé & mending for good). An harmonic union bringing together italian crafsmanship and green strategies with social impact.
Re-Love dresses are available in Milano Atelier Emé from 14/12/2021.
