Francesca Marchisio is an Italian designer who focuses on researching materials and forms, whilst considering style as expressing the essence of the individual and as such continually evolving.
Her journey, through everyday life and creative imagination, inspires Francesca to create authentic "OBJECTS" through a process of "slow-design" with the aim of offering an original synthesis of aesthetics, functionality and quality.
Her passion for double-sided fabrics and the curiosity to experiment with new processes “Made in Italy,” led her to develop more advanced notions of reversibility and modularity by establishing a niche market for original double-sided garments in 2011.
Originally from Piedmont, Francesca moved to Milan to study Fashion Design at the Marangoni Institute and live now in Reggio Emilia.
After completing her studies, thanks to the Riccione Moda Italia fashion competition, Francesca won the Max Mara prize that became her training and work experience. In 2004 she came into contact with a range of different environments, whilst at the same time expanding her experience as a stylist and designer. In 2007 she won the "Next Generation" competition organized by the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana her collection was shown in Milan during Women's Fashion Week F/W ' 08 after which she started consulting for major companies in the sector.
In 2010 Francesca debuted her own Sacaporter brand, this project involved the direct management of the collection, including production, distribution and promotion. Interaction with important buyers and trendsetters offered both confirmation and opportunities for improvement through a path that was very challenging but rich in experiences and emotions. In 2012 Francesca came into contact with Feyem Spa and subsequently found herself leading the artistic direction of Moorer's woman collection.
In 2014 came Moorer Capsule, a line that, in addition to incorporating Francesca's "reversibility" concept, includes the key design element of outerwear using ecological or natural feathers.
We have to look at things from new angles, and the world looks in different ways.
Beauty is the way to wear a dress.
To transform a thought into a design means facing possible and impossible tasks.
