Creating magic with elegant and sophisticated cuts and styles, young entrepreneur Leonida Ferrarese from Francavilla Fontana, southern Italy has now become a well-known name in bespoke tailoring.
The 29-year-old businessman holds a Masters in Marketing in the field of haute couture from New York. Leonida Ferrarese made his way in the fashion marketing from Salvatore Ferragamo on 5th Avenue New York and later returned to his hometown to kick-start his dream project-Brand and Tailoring Maison: “Bottega Dalmut”.
Breathing life into the fabric by meticulously crafting suiting and accessories, the experts at Bottega Dalmut give clients a one-of-a-kind customized shopping experience where no detail is overlooked.
Giving details to the style, Leonida Ferrarese only uses the finest materials on the market. The accessories like cashmere or silk ties, bow ties, shirts, shoes, and many others are all strictly “hand made in Italy”.
Leonida Ferrarese’s love for his home town, Italy, can be seen not only in his work and in his larger than life atelier ‘Bottega Dalmut’ but also as how this young entrepreneur after travelling half of the world chose Italy to build his dream Tailor Shop. Grew up in a beautiful region of southern Italy, Puglia, Leonida Ferrarese left his home to learn English and reached New York.
It was there where he met the love of his life and completed his marketing degree. This city also inspired him to take styling as his passion and Ferrarese started his first job at Salvatore Ferragamo on 5th Avenue. Soon, after learning the art of tailoring and styling, Ferrarese returned to Italy and after many failed attempts and failures, Bottega Dalmut in 2013 finally became a well-known brand name.
Bottega Dalmut is running in a historical building of the 800 in the heart of the city of Apulia, Italy where one can see the sophisticated Italian design in every-bit of it. From floors and frescoes to Art, everything speaks of elegance. The ground floor houses a showroom where clients can not only see Bottega Dalmut’s wide variety of fabrics, clothing, shoes, and accessories but also experience a royal treatment while sipping coffee and consulting with their experts comfortably in the atelier’s living room.
