To know her better I leave this interview done a few days before the show ….
ManueLita : Who is Francesca Abate ?
Francesca : This is the question I always put me in enormous difficulties. Responding without so much thinking I say that Francesca is a big dreamer but has always lived a real life. She has always dreamed of be a designer, but she use different way with patience hoping to one day succeed.
ManueLita : When did you discover your passion for fashion?
Francesca : Some things cannot find out, you have into yourself and trying to get out anyway. The other girls dreamed of making models to wear clothes, I dreamed to design them.
ManueLita : Do you remember the first dress you designed?
Francesca : Exactly the first no, but I have a notebook full of sketches from elementary school period. The first dress I designed and then realized it was for my 18 years, just 10 years ago.
Francesca : During a car trip going to work, in my mind, appeared images of what I loved in my life. My mom, the time spent to try her jewelry, mirroring myself and improvising outfits with sheets or tissue found around the house, then my growth, things I like, glitter, beauty.
Francesca :The sense of beauty and elegance and my refined and dreamy taste.
Tell us how you feel about a week before the big event?
Francesca : Agitated and full of emotion, I cannot wait to enjoy that moment but sometimes I would this week to pass as slowly as possible!
ManueLita : What does it mean personally conceive and organize a “dream” in minute detail ?
Francesca : A great effort, fatigue, but enormous satisfaction even if things don’t go exactly as I hope, because I do my best and from nothing I had the courage to create something.
ManueLita : Some “indiscretion” of this event ?
Francesca : There will be an opening show that will leave you speechless!
