Sicilian fashion is going through a period of growth

and fame in Sicily.


the amazing growth in this sector is mainly due to the

inventiveness and hard work of young designers whose talent

is ever appreciated by the market and by fashion magazines too.

The young islanders who developed their talent in the

Academies of Palermo, Catania and Rome are now the symbol of

made in Sicily” fashion.

Most of these young people,

who work for other designers and later opened their own

fashion houses,

can now boast fashion shows in Sicily, Rome, Milan or even abroad,

not to talk about co-operations with other fashion houses.

Baroque and Arab influence,
