Daniela Gregis Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 collection.  The Daniela Gregis Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 collection is named Madio, short for ar-madio or wardrobe. Madio is the world next door to go back and forth from, a stash, a hiding place, as solid and subtle as memories that  the designer invents, using whatever there is, opening the cupboard doors, emptying and filling up wardrobes, taking out the superfluous, adding the necessary and the serendipitous.
