The New Enfant Terrible of Fashion - A creator to the end of her fingertips


Sicilian born Francesca says her roots play a great part in the way she creates her collections. Her taste for Designing, Creating a Concept and Couture have been with her since the tender age of four and by the time she was ten, she started to self-teach herself by designing and sewing outfits for her little sisterís dolls. Already then her designs had an edge to them, a different touch to them.
