Barbara Casasola Women’s Guest Designer for the next edition of Pitti Uomo/Pitti W
(7-10 January 2014)
Barbara Casasola the young Brazilian born designer who is now based in London will be the Guest Designer at the next edition of Pitti W, with a fashion show that will be on stage on Thursday 9 January 2014, in the late afternoon.
“We chose Barbara Casasola to be the next Pitti women’s Guest Designer” explains Lapo Cianchi, director of communication at Pitti Immagine, “mainly because we loved her last few collections which had a clean, modern, sophisticated yet seductive and glamorous look. It is as though the openly minimal and romantic style conceals – and almost represses – a desire for greater affirmation and strength. This could also reflect an important part of her personality”.
“Barbara Casasola”, continues Cianchi, “is a young woman who has worked with a number of top fashion houses. She is proud of her homeland, Brazil, but has chosen to live and work in London, in a highly competitive environment. All her work is produced in Italy and this is another reason why we are interested in her. We are convinced that she is on the verge of taking her place on the front line of international women’s fashion and that is why we offered her a platform at Pitti”.
