I'm Silvia, I'm 26 years old and I'm a "restless immigrant": now I'm living in Liguria, but I move frequently to Emilia Romagna, the region from which I come and I left for love.
With me left also my three sewing machines, my dummy and an unbelievable quantity of fabrics and threads: it was not what you would call a lightweight travel!
To continue a production of clothing made ​​entirely by me needs a lot of material, and Kimsoo is just that: quality craftsmanship for women who appreciate and admire standing out from the crowd.

I'm Silvia, I'm 26 years old and I'm a "restless immigrant": now I'm living in Liguria, but I move frequently to Emilia Romagna, the region from which I come and I left for love.
With me left also my three sewing machines, my dummy and an unbelievable quantity of fabrics and threads: it was not what you would call a lightweight travel!
To continue a production of clothing made ​​entirely by me needs a lot of material, and Kimsoo is just that: quality craftsmanship for women who appreciate and admire standing out from the crowd.

One of my driving force is uniqueness: I work to make each woman unique and unrepeatable, an aware lover of her own body and the environment that surrounds us all. Most of the fabrics I use come from old collections, from inventory, from vintage markets. Each remnant comes to life in a piece of clothing created to be unique, reproducible in the model but not in the materials.

Every fabric I see - I know that may sound crazy, but that's the truth - speaks to me: I do not see scraps of fabric, but clothes that are waiting to be extrapolated from their unfinished form. Usually I choose the most striking and unusual fabrics.

And the excitement of creating something is almost always the same as the first finished work: I still remember that it was a bustier with ribs, fully hand-draped with white georgette, almost transparent. Once I have finished the last hand stitch I burst into liberating tears. I also avoided to clean some spots of blood which had soiled the fabric during the sewing to remind me that behind every great achievement is always a great sacrifice.

Hope you will like my work!
