Background: And now it's 'Sack-cloth and Ashes' for Italian woman - well, sack-cloth, anyway. Not content with a sack-shape, the Fontana Sisters' Fashion House in Rome are creating coats, gowns and accessories in sacking material --the kind of stuff from which potato sacks are made:
The original idea came from the daughter of one of the Fontana sisters. She had a difficult time convincing her mother about the new idea but once this obstacle was surmounted, she met the approval of numerous clients.
