Matteo Perin is an Italian designer who creates custom-made, luxury clothing for international celebrities and business leaders. He has growing ties with Birmingham, including Shaia's of Homewood Inc. I met Ken Shaia - of Shaia's Homewood - while I was in New York City. He told me all about his store, which really sounded great. So, we decided to do a trunk show last year with my designs, which was a great success.
