Francesca .R. Palumbo is our team’s talented knitwear designer who creates intricate and detailed garments that follow the natural silhouette of the female body. Wanting to challenge the idea of fast-consumption within fashion she produces feminine designs which are sustainable and personal; using unique colour waves of yarn, she explores different textures and unrepeatable drapes.
Francesca’s key belief is to question, be a voice and challenge environmental and societal issues showcasing this throughout her collections. Her first collection “Beauty in Poison”, as beautiful and gentle as it might look, was pointing finger at petroleum industry, oil spills and how it harms marine ecosystem.
She creates designs that have a purpose and tell a story, hoping to raise awareness and start a conversation.
