ROBERTO DI STEFANO

Fondazione Pistoletto

 

He was born and raised in Switzerland. Roberto di Stefano chose to become a fashion designer by attending the International Academy of Haute Couture in Rome and then the Esmod University in Berlin. He eventually attended the Central Saint Martins in London. After graduating, he started working in the field and held different positions, from product manager to creative at the design office. In February 2017, di Stefano presented his first bag collection, and the same year he got to the finals of the "Who is on Next?" important global showcases have selected contest: his bags. His FW21 collection marks a turning point: in the last few years, the designer has felt the need to rethink some aspects of his life and adjust to the change. The collection is now 100% vegan, cruelty-free and sustainable. After over one year of research and testing on alternative materials to replace the leather, he chose to collaborate with Desserto, a young company that has patented a material obtained from leaves of cactus whose production process is ethical and sustainable.
