Back in the 1940s, little Agata Zoro started learning the wonderful art of dressmaking with the nuns in sunny Sicily. She was still a girl when she realised that this was her calling, and it became her life’s dream to open her own store and sell her own dresses!
Many years later, she moved to Switzerland. Now married with two daughters, she was lucky enough to find work making luxury evening gowns in some of Zurich’s famous couture ateliers, where she continued to build on her dressmaking expertise.
The chance to make her dream come true presented itself in 1988, when the boutique went bankrupt. Agata Zoro wasted no time in taking over the business. Her oldest daughter Milena, who was 21 and studying fashion at Zurich University of the Arts at the time, dropped her studies and took over purchasing responsibilities, while Agata’s husband Pietro took charge of finances.
Nowadays, Zoro is a long-established institution for exclusive bridal fashion in Europe and a mecca for brides-to-be. Daughters Milena and Katia now go on ‘wedding dress tours’ to find their next big purchase. Senior partner Agata, who is now over 70 years old, still works in the atelier every day. Doesn’t she want to put her feet up? ‘Ma no, wedding dresses are my passion!’ she says.
