A collection of model certification folders form the National Independent Authority for Fashion
Celebrating Italian craftmanship
At the beginning of the XXth century, the fame of Turin as a capital of fashion was connected to the excellence of its commercial and manufacturing activities. Great Exhibitions stimulated competition on technological innovation, Paris was the landmark.
Born in Turin in 1932, the Ente Autonomo per la Moda Nazionale (National Independent Authority for Fashion), then National Agency of Fashion encouraged the development of an Italian style, independent from the French model.
Palazzo Madama has 70 model certification folders of the Turin feminine tailor’s shop Nebbia and Ghibaudo, with atelier in via Mario Gioda (now Via Giolitti) 5, divided into day, afternoon, midday and evening wear.
