The Melina Baffa brand has deep roots in the Italian tailoring tradition. In the 1970s, the very young founder of the company, Amalia Baffa, Melina's mother, took her first steps into the world of female Italian artisan tailoring.
During the years, Amalia improved her tailoring technique and opened, like many Italian artisans, a small shop behind the house, with only a sewing machine available, a lot of passion and desire to do. Other young apprentice seamstresses joined Amalia's team, to the point of creating an excellent women's tailoring, renowned and respected by the many local customers.
The young Melina grew up close to her mother among fabrics and threads, sewing machines and drawings, dolls to dress and dreams of princely dresses.
During the years Melina studied both her master's degree in engineering and stylistic design in parallel, until she graduated with honors from the Academy of Fashion.
Determined to pursue her stylistic talent, creates the Melina Baffa brand and opens a first store, strong in the tradition and family tailoring experience. A brand where she combines her talent as a stylist with the quality of traditional Italian family manufactures. Sales of the new Melina Baffa creations have been going well right from the start. In 2013 Melina also specialized in stylistic design for male customers, using Italian fabrics and quality sartorial finishes.
Our suits have now become synonymous with quality and style. Both the protagonists and the guests of many important events of the local clientele still wear Melina Baffa's clothes today. All of our dresses are still made or finished by hand by the designer or her team personally, according to traditional company guidelines. The tailoring workshop behind the house from the beginning has grown and moved into a solid and equipped artisan factory, but still maintains the solid initial principles of strong dedication to Italian quality.
In our showrooms and ateliers, you will be immersed in an atmosphere friendly and calm, an environment with many ready-made clothes to inspire you. You will be greeted with a smile of resolute willingness to find or create for you a beautiful dress, to be proud of it forever.
Our most sincere and heartfelt thanks go to our Clients who have given us the precious confidence to proudly create the clothes for their most important moments.
