World of Barbara

When asked about her experience Barbara Montagnoli often jokes that she was born on a cutting table for clothes! Born into a family with a strong atelier background, since the Sixties, Barbara had always had a natural vocation on style that paved all her stages of design and production of a dress and especially into the segment of Haute Couture.

Her decision to specialize, at the Istituto Secoli Milano (the most internationally renowned fashion school since 1934) came from her deep desire to improve her strong dressmaking skills and to create designs and style that is the identity of the collections under the brand name of Barbara Montagnoli Atelier.

Barbara’s designs champions in both the attention to the mock-up and the careful selection of fine textiles to flatter any shape and size of each woman that she dresses. A strong passion of Barbara’s is materials and the play and know-how of playing with every single detail from embellished garnishings, inlay works to piping to create a perfect fit masterpiece for anyone and everyone. Her brand not only addresses fashion trends, colours and fabrics but addresses and utilises the personality of each client to add inspiration and flair to each bespoke piece created. This is the strength of this unique fashion label- where imagination, style and confidence are the essential ingredients to looking fashionable for any event.
