Renown Italian master tailoring label Salvatore Di Francisca has opened its first store in the East and Central African region, bringing to customers high end tailoring services. The store, which is located in Nairobi's Village Market Mall, will offer customers authentic Italian tailoring experience using the world's leading manufacturers of fine fabrics - Loro Piana, characterised by the high standards of craftsmanship, quality and enriched experience since 1924.
"The Loro Piana customer is one who wants the very best of everything. This customer knows that a suit is not just a suit; it is an expression of oneself," said Salvatore. "Each suit is meticulously measured, cut and sewn by hand to create a garment that honours the Italian tradition of tailoring and is as unique as each customer."
Master craftsman Salvatore is famous for his attention to detail and his contribution to the design and making of football club Real Madrid's dress uniforms, and has worked with exclusive clients in Europe, Asia and the United States of America. The 80-year-old tailor is known for his signature takes on handmade, made to measure garments, which take into account the unique features of every customer and highlight the best of these features.
Speaking at the opening of the store Amin Premji, Director of Fairmove Group Ltd - which manages the Salvatore Di Francisca Brand - said, "As you all know nobody makes suits like the Italians, who have been designing them since the 1860s. What we are offering our clients at this store is the unique Italian experience; the same one they would enjoy if they walked into another Bespoke Store store in Italy, China or the United States."
