Established on 10th October, 2017 as a private business.
With the ideas and technique of Giselle, it grows slowly but steadily building the fan base.
The brand name “Guardaroba” was named by Giselle who loves Italy, and it means “wardrobe”.
“I want someone to wear what they like for long period of time. I want that kind of clothings to be stuffed in the wardrobe.”
There is no physical stores, so instead it repeatedly operated on online shopping services and big events at International Exhibition Center, however, because of the price range it was moved to this website.
While feeling the decline of Lolita culture in Japan, niche genre like classical lolita and steampunk are high in demand overseas, and because of this Guardaroba started to bring its business outside Japan.
Full order or one-of-a-kind high quality item is sold at “Guardaroba” while factory made products, mass produced items and casual medium ranges are sold at the sister brand “Guardaroba Di Lagazza”.
Born 2018.06.23 / 27 years old
Giselle self taught sewing herself since high school.
She designed the dress inspired by a butterfly at the seminar at university.
However, self taught techniques were not enough for her, leading her to proceed to a sewing school upon graduation.
She dropped out of the sewing school when the orders for her clothings increased.
Moving to Saitama, she sorted out her environment for sewing.
Her current objective is to work overseas, and she is planning to establish her new home / atelier in Tokyo.
She is also planning to have a exhibition in few years.
Thoroughly, slowly and steadily. Her motto is to work as carefully as possible.
