“This is not elitist fashion—it’s for a woman who appreciates luxurious fabrics, hidden details, quality finishing and classics with an edge of distinction.”
- Max Girombelli, Founder -
Created by, and exclusive to, Duca Sartoria New York, Duca Donna, offers a unique concept of true luxury that, reflecting a woman’s personal style, allows clients to create a signature wardrobe by crafting individual clothing collections — from the fabric and pattern, to the details and personalization. Each garment is made in Italy by master tailors that offer the highest level of sartorial excellence and absolute attention to detail. The Duca Donna Atelier U.S. is located within Duca Sartoria New York, in Midtown Manhattan.
Duca Sartoria represents years of experience in the fine Italian tailoring tradition, as well as consummate personal service and a maniacal commitment to exemplary, innovative wardrobe craftsmanship.
Owner Max Girombelli represents the third generation of a family that has been in the fashion industry for over half a century, an enduring testament to their commitment to elegance and style.
His uncle is credited with having discovered a talented young designer named Gianni Versace, and his father and older brother worked closely with Italian couturier Valentino Garavani; Moschino; Marithé + François Girbaud, Enrico Coveri and more.
The family’s company was Max’s playground when he was growing up, as a young boy he was paid cento lire to remove the dust from jackets’ shoulders. He began to admire the house tailors, who worked on the most beautiful fabrics with passionate mastery.
After working for many years in the fashion industry, Girombelli struck out on his own, returning to the roots of fashion: tailoring.
He took over an old custom made-to-measure atelier in Milan, and transformed in the New Custom Made To Measure of today.
Girombelli is based full time in New York and also present in Dubai during the year.
