What does it mean to have a Bespoke Vircos suit? A few words from our Pattern Designer Chief Officer: Laura De Agnoi
What do you need to protect yourself on the track?
To keep yourself entertained while marching on your motorbike?
Collaboration, meetings, communication: this is the Vircos working method that allows us to constantly grow and improve, but read how much effort it takes to create your tailored suit.
Hi everyone, I’m Laura De Agnoi.
In Vircos, I work as Office Chief and Pattern Designer. My work is self-explanatory: I design suits. But I certainly don’t do it alone.
18 years and never a dull moment
Since I started working at Vircos 18 years ago, I must say that I have never been bored. Mainly because we continue to evolve, because we create personalized suits that allow me to always be creative. And that’s why we collaborate.
In addition to the suits, which I deal with, there is a whole world behind Vircos, with our trucks on the racing-days, the possibility of creating ad hoc models for each customer.
It is really difficult to find a free moment!
In our office, we have trained a team of extremely competent model makers, and tem work is our main engine… first with the customer, and then amongst ourselves.
The team is up and running from this point forward: with the client’s information, we draw a a blueprint and work, detail upon detail, until we the finish the product.
Safety, above all, is the most important detail.
I’ll explain the method in two words, and then I’ll also reveal a fact that is too often ignored by the manufacturing companies -this will give you an insight on, how much we care about your safety.
1. Collection of information
2. Discussion of the project with the team
3. Preparation of the basics
4. Control meeting
To the untrained eye, these are normal process-steps, but they allow us to control every single moment of production and, of course, create competitive and functional suits…
…but, do you want to know the secret? It is very simple, as far as we’re concerned it is not a problem to reveal it to you: it is our margin of error on the finalization of the projects.
Which is one of the things I care about most: I’m proud of it.
After all, without you I couldn’t continue having so much fun while I work!
