Francesca Versace is an Italian designer, born and raised in Milan.
Daughter of Versace CEO Santo, and niece of Donatella and the late Gianni Versace, she spent her childhood surrounded by her family, inspiring art, fascinating people and endless opportunities to travel the world.
She moved to London to pursue a degree in fashion design and marketing at Central St Martins School, the world leading centre for art and design education.
The discipline she learned combined with her natural free-spiritedness resulted in her label, f.e.v. by Francesca E. Versace, a line of luxury made in Italy handbags launched in January 2016 during Paris Fashion Week.
Her brand is inspired by a woman’s journey: a woman who collects memories from her voyages. f.e.v. is a label of Italian sensibilities, mixed with a traveller’s spirit and a sense of discovery. It is a sophisticated bohemianism, an ease and casualness, a barefoot glamour all infused with an inherent style that goes back to the 1960s and 70s.
Before launching her own label Francesca has collaborated with prestigious brands of fashion, design and lifestyle, among them Bric’s, Range Rover, Peroni.
Francesca actively supports philanthropic activities like Operation Smile Italia and has collaborated with charity projects & foundations such as Unicef Italia, Matches Fashion for Future Dreams Ladies Lunch 2016, Rede Asta, Innocence in Danger, Womanity, International Women’s Day, Amfar Milano and Convivio.
