I discovered the Tucco Lusso line when I spotted my very good friend Frances Broussard in a maxi dress called The Convertible. Honestly, I mistook it for a Helmut Lang, which many of you know I’m obsessed with. I was instantly taken with the ultra luxe fabric and the flawless draping.
Of course, I had to know more. Where did this girl come from? Did she study at Parsons School of Design? Tocco Lusso designer and founder Courtney Adams grew up on her family’s ranch just outside of a small town of 1,100 residents in Oklahoma. There she was gifted a Janome sewing machine, not long before moving to Sarasota five years ago. With that, she discovered her talented for fashion design, an unbelievably impressive self-taught learner. Courtney jokes, “My textbooks have been a lifetime subscription to Vogue!”
Knowing this makes her impeccable collection all the more astonishing. Courtney has done everything exactly right from her choice of fabrics to her modern aesthetic and she’s somehow perfected one shape for all. I’d liken it to how a Diane von Fürstenberg wrap dress can accommodate varying body types. It’s a line of upscale comfortable basics that are more like elegant essentials. If that’s your thing then you’re gonna fall for Tocco Lusso in a major way…//Click Here for more @SarasotaMagazine.com
