Today, I had the opportunity to meet acclaimed designer, Mr. Domenico Vacca. Through the power of Twitter I saw that he posted that he was having a trunk show in Philadelphia and of course I had to be there. It was a quick 15 minute trip from my office to the trunk show so it gave me time to prepare myself to bear witness to a dazzling area of fine custom and ready to wear men’s attire. When setting up this meeting I had to contact Mr. Vacca’s assistant Oliver, who I know I would be meeting today. Once I arrived at the location, I expected to meet with a few representatives from the Domenico Vacca company, however; I actually go to meet and hang out with Mr. Domenico Vacca himself.
This will go down in history as one of my favorite and most inspiring encounters in my life. Just learning about the Vacca brand and the process, while understanding the passion that Mr. Vacca puts in his work was truly something that stands out in a world of cookie cutter brands. Being that Domenico Vacca does some ready to wear clothing I was able to try on a few suit jackets and sport coats. Once I had those coats on they just didn’t want to leave my body (or I really didn’t want them to leave my body). Here are some pictures below from my meeting with Mr. Domenico Vacca.
