What happens when a bunch of sewing ladies get together, they organise to meet up the next day and visit the Sydney Institute of TAFE NSW and see the exhibition “Style, Scissors and a Fantasy: the Alina Galasso retrospective”. *
Alina Galasso played an important role in introducing European fabrics to the Australian fashion market through her company, Fabric Fantasy.
We all remembered visiting Fabric Fantasy in Commonwealth Street, Surry Hills, it is where Tessuti is located today.
So this morning we met at The TAFE to admire the beautiful garments that were made for Alina Galasso and others from the fabrics that Alina had imported to Australia which were amazing.
