Designing women’s clothing is more about make than anything else. Make is the intersection of design and construction. It is literally and figuratively how and where things come together. Not surprisingly, it is also collaborative: it’s where the designer and the artisan overlap. Design can be done freely knowing the artisans will be able to execute the designs. So while everything matter – color, materials, silhouette – it is the make that most distinguishes a Bottega Veneta garment.
