Francesca Bellavita is a freelance designer born in Bergamo, Italy. In 2006 Francesca decides to pursue her passion for fashion and attends the three-year course in Fashion Design at Istituto Marangoni Milano, graduating in 2009. She starts collaborating with Colmar Originals and, at the age of 23 years old, she designs her first collection for the brand, anticipating the cool & chic sportswear trends. Through her travels all over the world – New York, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Shanghai – Francesca finds inspiration for her creations, by approaching new cultures and learning new pattern-making, production and fabrics processes. Today on the one side she collaborates as freelance designer with several streetwear and sportswear brands, while on the other she focuses on her great passion for shoes and shoe design. This passion brought her to launch her own shoe brand, “Francesca Bellavita”, whose first S/S2017 collection was presented in New York and Milan. With her collections, Francesca wants to create funny shoes for sexy and sophisticated women who never really take things too seriously. Handmade with premium materials and avant-garde elements, her creations have already been featured on internationally renowned fashion magazines (Vogue, Vogue Sposa, Vogue Accessories, Elle, Glamour, Wear) and have been worn by different international actresses, singers and showgirls.
