As part of the installation to present the fall collection, Pal Zileri's seamstresses worked to show 12 of the 180 steps needed to make a jacket. On WWD.COM

Pal Zileri seamstresses quickly forgot the stage fright caused by working in front of retailers and press that had come to see the brand’s installation at Milan’s storied Rotonda della Besana.

 
Sewing away to show 12 of the 180 steps needed to make a Pal Zileri jacket, the artisans were flanked by the models, who walked and posed under the row of columned arches of the late Baroque landmark. Mirrored screens in the background reflected the images and added a modern element to the scene.
 
“This is the first slow fashion show,” quipped creative director Mauro Ravizza Krieger, referring to the models pausing in their walk and to the pace of the format, which allowed to “see what’s behind” the collection.
