Lavinia Turra

Born in Bologna, the red city of culture and art; she grew up among women who cut and sewed, she frequented ancient tailors as a child and learned the love for this job.


Her profession was born and grew with the use of her hands, which know and use not only colors and pencils, but above all materials, fabrics and fabrics, using scissors, needle and thread.


He arrives at this work through an attraction and a long road of “connivance”, “complicity”, assiduous participation and personal study, linked to art, painting, theater, because anyone does all this with a little scruple and passion, knows the debts that the world of making has contracted and contracts every moment with the universe of art.


Curious by nature, the personal relationship and listening are the basis of her creative ability to “dress” because the dress “must represent the woman and not disguise her”.

Cecilia Torsello

Lavinia’s daughter, born in Bologna. She grew up on cutting tables. The mother drew, the modeler cut out and she colored.

She began a course at the Politecnico di Milano in architecture: “I didn’t want to follow in my mother’s footsteps”; but after a year she enrolled at the IED in Milan.
After graduating in Styling and Communication with honors, she started working for D la Repubblica, but then she realizes that “matter” is the thing that she misses the most.

When you breathe in a certain place even when you are very young, especially alongside someone who truly loves that world, your destiny is sealed.

So, together with Lavinia, she begins her new professional career, enriched by the experience of styling and communication, by opening Maison laviniaturra.
An articulated and differentiated path, which in the end led her to follow in “her mother’s footsteps” with joy, passion and motivation.

The aspect that most fascinates her is the care. For people, for clothes: care in research.

“I wouldn’t call it ‘fashion’, rather creating clothes to make women feel beautiful and comfortable.”
