The Designer Federico d'Angelo

Federico D’Angelo was born in Milan on the 25th of September 1975. The grandchild of a dressmaker specializing in fur creations, Federico displayed a keen interest in fashion since an early age, and was often to be found playing with fabrics and fur trimmings in his grandmother’s workshop or dreamily going through designers clothing with her in the elegant boutiques of Milan’s city centre. Growing up in Milan during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, when the city was establishing its pre eminence as Prêt a Porter’s world Fashion capital, Federico spent his teenage years admiring and closely observing the work of designers such as Gianni Versace, Roberto Capucci and Gianfranco Ferre’, witnessing their global success, and absorbing and learning the pursuit for beauty and elegance and its different expressions. Federico started his eponymous Prêt a Porter label in August 2013.
