: Germana Marucelli (B. Florence 1905) was as important to early Italian fashion as Dior was to French fashion...A pioneer of Milanese fashion & design she grew up in an atmosphere of refined craftsmanship, her mother and aunt being accomplished seamstresses...During the 20s & 30s she attended Paris fashion shows & using her gift of memory reproduced the designs she saw for the Italian market...When the complications of war forbade Italian designers from referencing French designers she was forced to become a "stylist" (designer), In Stressa (Italy), with a small group of well-to-do women customers she began her design career in earnest..."The consecration of a true Italian style occurred with the Florence fashion shows organised by the Marchese Giorgini at Palazzo Pitti in the early ?50?s. For the stylists who participated with their own creations, such as the Fontana sisters, Simonetta and Alberto Fabiani, these shows constituted a considerable risk, but also a remarkable opportunity and offered encouragement to continue with their own work." * Marucelli had her first show at Pitti Palace in 1951 (*see Gruppo78)...From the 1950s a chic & very "of the period" Italian vibe, a dress & matching coat in printed silk chiffon, couture quality, the dress is fitted, with draped neckline back, cap sleeves, v front button bodice (hand bound button holes & self covered buttons), fitted waist with open pleated skirt, hand set fine painted metal zipper, lined in black silk chiffon & self tie belt...The matching coat is self lined, has 3/4 length sleeves and has an unstructured feel...In excellent wearable condition...Fits like a modern 4
