What makes a handcrafted product so special? Hold it in your hands with your eyes closed and listen: it will speak to you, about ideas, hopes, loves, errors, discoveries and details, imagining a smile, yours.
My name is Angela Ventre, I opened my boutique in the Principality of Monaco in 2008 and at the same I became a member of the World Federation of Master Tailors; over the last five years I have attended their world conventions bearing the colours of the Principality.
I view myself as very lucky because whenever I am working on a garment I feel I am realising a dream I’ve had since I was a girl. I am a wife and a mother of two children, a teenage girl and a little boy. Striking the right balance between work and family life has not always been easy: my job calls for an on-going process of learning and constant updating, through specialised courses, studies and travels. Yet, this profession embodies my aspirations and my personal goals, besides being a job with countless potential applications.
I cannot hide my satisfaction when my customers say that wearing a garment I made for them is like wearing a second skin. It is not just a matter of being fashionable, on important occasions you also want to feel ease and at the same time stand out from everybody else: and that’s what my work is all about. In my boutique you can (almost) always find me ready to take your measurements for your next outfit.
