Maison Marina (CLOSED)
Time Out says
An authentic maison of design and production where you'll find unique outfits
The name doesn't lie: this is an authentic 'maison' of design and production, and all the pieces are sewn by Marina herself. In this small, welcoming shop in the centre of Girona, you'll only find very limited edition clothes, all extremely feminine and personal and which make seasonal trends their own, as designed by Marina and her daughter Patricia. The price of these almost-unique dresses, which can be adapted to the shape and preferences of each client, rarely go above €150. If you need yet more reasons to go to this amazing atelier, you should know that all the materials used are of Catalan or Italian production: mother and daughter travel each year to Prato, the temple of Tuscan textiles where hundreds of small family businesses fight tooth and nail against globalisation with pride in what they make themselves, to buy the best they can find. And they are very aware of lineage: originally from Medellín (Colombia), Patricia is the third generation of dressmakers in her family. She dresses clients aged between 2 and 85, and nowhere will you find better sewn zips!
