With the end of the last weekend in February, Milan Fashion Week also gradually came to an end. As night falls, Francesca Liberatore, an Italian independent designer brand, makes a grand debut as the finale of Milan Fashion Week in autumn and winter 2023. As an independent designer brand, what is its magic that can make DHL and a group of Milan chambers of commerce favor this fashion brand and continue to collaborate and sponsor it? Let’s invite all the watchers to follow the small editor and walk into Milan Fashion Week to explore and understand the behind the scenes story of the brand.
#1 The “Future Light” of Italian Fashion
Francesca Liberatore, an independent brand designer, was born in Italy. As a person born in a country of fashion and renaissance, art and design seem to be her inherent strengths. After graduating from Central Saint Martin in London, she also worked in the world’s most prestigious Maison style office, Viktor&Rolf and Paris high-end brand Jean Paul Gaultier. These work experiences were one of the indispensable factors for her to become an independent designer later on. For someone as passionate as me, I really need to expose myself, expose and feel the strong warmth between people, ” Francesca said.
#2 Fashion design born on chessboard
The Francesca Liberatore 2023/24 Autumn/Winter collection is inspired by checkerboards. ‘Contradiction and Conflict’ is the theme of the entire show. The brand uses opposing colors from both sides of the chessboard – black and white as the main color tones. The conflict of colors greatly enhances the visual impact in the show, making the entire show full of drama and design.
#3 Romance in Deconstruction
Different from other brands’ unified and harmonious style, Francesca Liberatore is very fond of Deconstruction. It is clear that the left side of the upper body is a skirt, and the right side is a suit shirt. It’s a short skirt, but there’s a long tail on the back. Disrupting elements for different combinations is a routine operation for Francesca Libratore.
This strongly contradictory and conflicting element has been well integrated in Francesca Liberatore’s hands.
#4 The “Future Light” of the Fashion Industry and the World
This show on the chessboard may be what Francesca Liberaore himself wants to convey to everyone: there are too many contradictions and conflicts in today’s society, especially for women, all kinds of contradictions and conflicts are happening all the time. Fashion should not only be a cold show, but also a feeling between people.
