Sofia Colasante, born in 1991 in the province of Salerno, is passionate about Art in all of its forms and since 2015 she has been designing women’s garments creating collections that bear her signature.
Sofia attended the Fashion Design course at Istituto Marangoni Milano and completed her first academic path in 2012 winning the “Best Technology Concept” award, which made her a renowned emerging designer in the main European capitals of Fashion. Meanwhile, she decided to deepen her knowledge of marketing in the luxury sector, therefore she enrolled in a Fashion Business course at Istituto Marangoni Paris, where she got a scholarship to attend the Fashion Design Womenswear Master’s at Istituto Marangoni London.
In the same years, besides studying she also worked as a freelancer with Bulgari – for whom she has developed two lines for the staff’s uniforms, including the latest 2016 line, adopted in the Bulgari boutiques around the world – and, between 2014 and 2015, she also collaborated with Hussein Chalayan and Erdem in London, where she had the opportunity to get in touch with the world of product development and production. She came back to Italy in 2015 to start her namesake brand Sofia Colasante, launching ‘Back to the Future’, her first SS 2016 collection.
