Interview with Gian Luca Salvucci – Creative Director for “Delsa”
Delsa was established in 1969 by Maria Cristina Craglia, the founder. The unusual feature for the time was that there was a woman behind the growth of such a major business as ours. Maria Cristina Craglia had always had very clear ideas about her future – to create something unique for brides. The years she passed learning the art of dress-making in a cloistered convent and attending the “Secoli” Institute in Milan certainly helped her achieve her goal. Maria Cristina combined the love for beauty and for perfect workmanship with great creativity. This business run by women has now been passed down to her family, which combine the traditions of the founder with the requests of present-day brides.
