Alberta Ferretti

To start my summer of infinite fashion knowledge, I am starting with Alberta Ferretti. I basically looked under's list of designer and found the first one in the A's that I liked. Italian designer Alberta Ferretti was born in 1950 and opened a boutique at the age of 18 selling luxury brands. She created her first line, Aeffe, with her brother in 1980. Her first runway show was at Milan fashion week in 1981. Her line, Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, was launched in 1984. By 1994, Ferretti was also designing for Moschino, Gaultier, and Narciso Rodriguez. describes her designs as, "for feminine, romantic women with a taste for delicate, antique decoration and simple lines." She released two perfume labels in 1993 and 1995.

The farthest show back I could find was 2000, but it is still too fun to see what the trends were eight years ago, and how she has evolved as a designer.

--Alberta Ferretti's spring 2007 is kind of special to me. It was one of the first fashion shows that really got me excited about fashion. The fall when this came out was when I first stared getting interested in fashion. Sure, I loved clothes and I loved to shop, but I always thought runway shows were kind of boring. But that fall I looked at some online and fell in love. I hadn't heard of Ferretti before, but I fell in love with this collection. Looking at this brings back that familiar feeling of awe and excitement about fashion.
