The inspiration for Artisanal
Elif’s interest and fascination for Artisanal is directly inspired by her grandmother, an elegant and cultured woman and also an Ambassador’s wife, who was making her own toilettes using Vogue patterns with a special collection of buttons, as Elif records in our conversation. Maybe also she inspired the timeless elegance of Artisanal Cornucopia’s first clothing collection which was launched recently as Elif tells us in the Episode.
