Federico started his eponymous Prêt a Porter brand in August 2013. Drawing inspiration from the Eternal city of Rome, the designer chose the representation of Saint Michael and its strong historical cross faith symbolism as a protector and guardian to represent his brand’s uncompromising approach to quality and craftsmanship and striking lines. As a result, D’Angelo’s Prêt a Porter collections and Couture dresses are developed by Federico and his team with great attention to details, and are entirely produced in Italy by expert and highly skilled Italian dress makers using the finest and most luxurious Italian fabrics and materials.
D’Angelo’s training as an architect is evident in his use of construction and his mastering of tailoring techniques. The designer creates iconic designs by concentrating on form, balance and structure and through the juxtaposition of surfaces and materials. Federico’s designs combine femininity and elegance, and are a careful compositional exercise as well as a display of sartorial excellence, with a strong emphasis on quality and craftsmanship and great attention to details.
