Essère was born in 1997 in Florence. Its founder Ilaria Tolossi after attending fashion schools works for some designers, as a sample assistant for J.P. Gaultier, then as a designer for other fashion houses including Emilio Pucci. The desire to follow create a garment from design to realization and to combine the family tailoring tradition with the experiences made, leads Ilaria to create her own brand. The attention to the quality of the fabrics and the love for colors and prints are the characteristics that distinguish Essère. The products are 100% made in Florence and the fabrics come not only from companies but also from vintage markets, from old tailors or companies closing down for an upcycling philosophy. The attention to detail then makes the difference between “essere” (to be) and Essère.
