Countdown to Runway

IDRS Files #6: Mia Fioravanti

Her minimalist designs are inspired by a long family history in the wool industry, but the result is totally modern.

Mia Fioravanti is no newbie to the Seattle design stage. She’s been showing off her textural, past-meets-present pieces around town for over two decades, bouncing around between a number of shops over the years including Juniper, Momo, and Clementine. In recent weeks, she's settled into a cozy Beacon Hill space all her own where loyal patrons and passersby alike can check out her work: part-shop, part-studio, and shared with longstanding letterpress printer Day Moon Press.

Click through the slide show for a look at some of the IDRS contestant's designs and a sneak preview of the pieces she'll be showing on the runway in September.

Designing and constructing clothing has been a lifelong pursuit for Fioravanti, who taught herself to sew when she was only eight years old.
