As reported by same Maria Diamanti..
"When long before my group and I decided to do this report, for several months, all they did was study.. I studied fashion decades books, studied the work of well-known fashion photographers who worked with designers decades of 40s, 50s and 60s. I studied figurines  era from our family collection and trust me. .. is great – I saw movies that established fashions, I got lost in an infinite number of images in the internet.. For a long time through the research I did, live over again every  season Fashion Icons Women that mark fashion history such as Audrey Hepburn  Melina Mercouri , Jackie O’, all the work of Avedon for Dior, the ΄΄ROMANTSO΄΄, the ΄΄GYNAIKA΄΄, the pictures from my grandmother's creations, my friends were good. And after ... had to choose!
My team consists of fifteen people.. the amateur section that is me. People with whom we are together for two hours each week here and long. .. The business come, trained and flee. At the end of two years is usually ready to open their own wings. The amateurs but those who love to manufacture clothing for the satisfaction of creation alone, they are always the ones with whom I'm working on such project, through which they made and their education.
But we in my group we have a beginning. We do not use seamstresses. That  show every time in such presentations are made by me and my trainees, if anyway these people trained as designers, as a pattern maker but also the art of Couture necessarily! In our previous report was requested to address the garment as a means of expression and its construction as a process out of the ordinary that don't always require the seam but also various other alternative techniques as well as different of the usual raw materials. But this year GO BACK!! BACK in the time when the Audrey took on the Breakfast  at  Tiffany's inside the black Givenchy dress, BACK in 1962, when Jackie visited India wearing the salmon-pink Oleg Cassini dress, BACK at Dior's New Look, BACK to the hats that he photographed the Avedon in 1952 in Paris. BACK to re-creating some of these legendary masterpieces not only like clothes that resemble those originals but just the way they sewed people then.
So we press REWIND to fashion and go BACK on a report that it is hymn to sewing technique of the past, dedicated to every dressmaker who spent days and nights hand made  tailoring , I spent hundreds of  bobbins for hand klapes (technical aid clothing cloth holder with special stitches), to every dressmaker who dressed buttons and buttonholes, hand built into every seamstress who made fabric Handmade flowers to decorate a dress. Dedicated to the two most cherished seamstresses of my life, my grandmother and my aunt ... »
