News with a Twist

From the Factory to Fashion Week

Fashion is glamorous, jaw-dropping, bold, beautiful. Fashion is gritty, gut-wrenching, underground, over-the top.

What is fashion? That depends on your perspective. For local designer Lisa Iacono and her team of seamstresses at Nola Sewn, fashion is an escape artist.

From one season to the next, the racks keep rolling and the machines keep stitching. The flow is constant; out with the old, in with the new. In this shop, dainty hands perform the job of giants … all to create the next great showpiece: “That look”…with a lifespan so short, the moment it moves off the runway it’s dead and the seamstresses must breathe life into the next garment.

And so the chase continues … though you may capture it in a still shot, fashion, never stops moving, but neither do they.
