Italian Haute Couture at Paolo Sorrentino’s premiere.

At the Cannes Festival the best of Made in Italy‘s know-how come together to create a haute couture dress for the red carpet. Designed by Tuscan stylist Eleonora Lastrucci in collaboration with Fashion Project Manager Silvia Franzoni, who conceived the project, with the participation of Beste and Rilievi, part of HModa Group.

The haute couture dress is a model with a refined, feminine and elegant soul, enriched by embroidery on the bustier featuring the hand application of hundreds of crystals, a touching luminous stitch, made by Rilievi. It is produced in 100% Made in Italy ITACO organic cotton, provided by the textile company Beste. The project involves the regeneration of abandoned cultivation fields in southern Italy.

This dress represents the synergy between two corporate entities, Beste and Rilievi Group, part of the Italian HModa group, where manufacturing and craftsmanship converge, embodying the core principles in the creation of excellent Made in Italy garments.
