Having recently completed her studies at London College of Fashion, specialising in Womenswear, Francesca Carini has produced a collection that takes reference from a depth of personal historical research and translates these influences into timeless and effortless silhouettes for the modern women.

Francesca, who is based in London/Essex, was inspired by her half Italian heritage, observing the journey of her grandmother from rural life in the Italian mountains to the busy, liberal city environment of London. She has taken reference from the recontextualisation of old traditions and values, as they take shape in a new location, adapting to the excessive visual influences of 60s/70s London.
