Moulage Margherita Cottafavi is created to inspire and celebrate a woman who fearlessly dares to stand out.
It is an extremely feminine total look based on jacquard knitwear and offers a perfect combination of innovative volume and design with a touch of lurex.
Margherita Cottafavi creates each garment from studied tailoring on a dummy and enhances her idea of fashion and style by jacquard patterns with a striking graphic impact.
Moulage collection is thus extremely recognizable and reinterprets knitwear, which is experienced and created with artisan skill throughout the textile industry district in Carpi (Mo).
Moulage Margherita Cottafavi combines striking tailored volumes, soft necklines, bows and ornate ruffles in flamboyant shades of lurex with a chic, elegant feel that perfectly fits the contemporary woman, pursuing a timeless idea of style.
Margherita reinterprets Art Déco lines and decorations that are stylized and deconstructed to dress a modern muse with refined taste.
