Banco Lotto 10 information
Prison orange is out and plum silk velvet is in at this nonprofit boutique, whose hand-sewn fashions are the fruit of a retraining program at the women’s prison on Giudecca. Designed and made by inmates, the smartly tailored jackets (€80 to €140) and handbags often incorporate opulent silks, velvets and tapestry donated by Fortuny and Bevilacqua. Even La Fenice has dressed its divas in Banco Lotto ensembles.
Volunteers run the boutique and purchases fund the women prisoners’ continuing career training and reintegration into society after their release.
