a passion for silk

Born of the marriage of two passions and two lives:

the creation of garments and painting.

Even as a small girl Adriana Tiron used to love to dream up and make clothes

for herself and her friends, ones that could make feel unique and special.

For Marco Sartor his artistic expression was always through a canvas and a paint brush.

we're here to tell you:

about us

The Elegant You is an online retail platform for those who value fashion designs of the less known brands. We  found plenty of them in Italy. For years we were in touch with the great craftsmen and artists whose experience with creating true masterpieces spans multiple generations. But if you are smaller than Gucci or Chanel doesn’t mean your offering to the world should be overlooked: we are here to not make it happen. Our Italian partners can bring you just as much joy and admiration as the famous brands would – at a much more reasonable price! 

We avoid representing brands we don’t trust personally and cannot vouch for their fidelity to the highest standards in fashion design. Read testimonials of actual clients of our store and see for yourself. As our official motto reads Elegance & Style, the No Brand Tax is our second one. If you accept them you are at home here.

Welcome and Happy shopping!

creating dress NOTES

Making a dress that makes you feel special is always on my mind. I was inspired by an Adele song. Listening to it, I imagined myself dancing, dreamlike, in an ancient salon. A full skirt swirled around me as I moved. This is how the dress was born. It had to be simple. Marco hand-painted notes that rose and evaporated in the air. To complete the design he added the treble clef. It started with a melody and ended with a magical dress to wear.

creating PAPAVERO

I tied on my athletic shoes and went for a run.  Sun on my face, hair blowing, I reveled in the pure pleasure of a glorious Spring day.  The call of nature all around caused me to abandon the asphalt for a country road.  Just ahead I saw a field of poppies.  As I drew closer, I began to see the velvety silk texture of their petals.  I sat beside them for a closer look, then I laid my head among them and watched the light filter through, their petals vibrating with each imperceptible breath of air.  I was awed by their vibrant color, their fragility and lightness.  Something clicked inside me.  As I got up and ran on, I envisioned a dress in bold red, made of silk as fine and delicate as the petals of poppies fluttering in the breeze.  It will be lovely, I thought.
