“100 dresses, the colours of India “

The splendid salons of the historic Atelier Ricci in the heart of Lucca provided the backdrop for an evening dedicated to fashion and charity.

“100 dresses, the colours of India and the memory of the journey” saw on the catwalk the creations of designer Lisa Quaratesi Vincenzini followed by a charity sale to raise funds for a school in India, the Mango Tree Goa House.


Mango Tree Goa House is an institution very close to Lisa’s heart. The designer has been a trustee of the Mango Tree Goa House for over 10 years. The institution looks after schooling and health needs for the children in Goa.

Lisa produces her collections in India to support this institution and the local community.

Every year a special event is organised to sell 100 dresses of LQV’s collection to raise funds for for the trust.

Lucca’s response was above expectations. The sale of the creations raised over 3600 euros, which were sent directly to Mango Tree House.
