Designer Profile: Matteo Dell'Orto
Matteo Dell'Orto, Milanese designer class '86, he graduated in interior design and has taken a growing interest in the techniques and design methods of art and design. Matteo has worked with several architectural firms, furniture companies and artisans experimenting with furnishing materials, recycled materials, melding industrial applicability and craftsmanship. He says the basic idea for making the fashion project is that “you cannot think of a head without putting in the foreground the mastery of construction and exploitation of materials with which it is created”. Matteo’s point of view towards creating a fashion project is shown through his Ecofashion garment “T-LUGGAGE”, which is a small closet to physically wear or hang and fill it with objects. It is a T-shirt designed with pockets and inserts that takes up no extra space but creates it. Each garment becomes a single piece thanks to the availability of tissues of recycling of the pockets.
