The thousand pleats that animate Elisabetta Franchi’s pleated dresses have such a long history that it is clear why they are an evergreen motif in the fashion world: the first designer to use pleats in 1909, Mariano Fortuny Y Madrazo, took inspiration from the ancient Greeks and Egyptians! They are clothes that fit all women: they create movement and harmonize the silhouette, often hiding small imperfections. You can experiment with pleating on many occasions, from the longuette or long dress for ceremony, to the daytime dress for your office time or leisure moments: it is an ornament that knows no time or occasion of use, ideal for its versatility.
