PRATO, Italy — When the world took note of Michelle Obama’s new look with bangs — posted on her 49th birthday — it also marked a milestone and a connection to fancy yarn spinner in Prato, near Florence, saved from the ashes of bankruptcy three years ago by a successful Italian government intervention.
In the White House photo, Obama wore a red jacquard jersey dress designed by Zac Posen, which spinner Lineapiù Italia says was made from its Giselle and Perseo yarns.
