A Craftsman Mindset
MARA VANDELLI was founded in Milan in 2005 as a "made-to-order" tailor' s shop.

Two people, a small shop, a lot of fabrics and direct customers. A very artisan way.



The concrete evolution began in 2010, when the first ready-to-wear collection for women was created; eleven creations were presented to customers as "Primiundici" ( the first eleven). Due to fantastic reactions, the team started focusing only on the ready-to-wear production; first collaborations with multi-brand boutiques began all over Italy.

Today MARA VANDELLI is an independent reality that stands between artisan tailoring and business production, taking care of every step of its own projects. We reduce our environmental impact by using natural fibers and upcycling fabrics, and we’ve also developed a certified organic line.

Heads and Hands

Meet Ismara’s ‘Heads and Hands’ - they share overlapping duties, help each other, discuss and sometimes argue.

Mara designs new garments, cuts, keeps accounts and gives instructions to Stefano who, together with Manuele, calls customers, visits trade fairs, and gives his feedback to Mara. Then he phones Elena, who answers from the shop in Moneglia and tells him that she has just created a new window display and that blue herringbone dress would just look wonderful in it... As she hangs up, Elena thinks about the other shops in Laigueglia, Marciana Marina and Carloforte, and decides that hers is the best (but the others don’t agree, of course). We’ll let Andrea decide, then, when he picks the outfit to be posted on social media.

Valentina cuts the fabrics, and helps Martina, Arianna and Valentina who sew the clothes and Laura who irons them. And all together - except Cristina, Stefano and Manuele - they draw the patterns. And when she’s not checking invoices, Cristina organizes the storeroom, ‘tidies up’, and tells Mara and Stefano that...
