Following the years of invaluable experience with Lanerie Agnona, Franco Ferraro sets up his own company which he calls Child, an acronym of Chiara, Ilaria, Davide, his three children with whom he still works today. Business begins with his design for a youthful new line of womenswear for Givenchy, called Givenchy V, and he also works on menswear for Christian Dior. Then he embarks on Franco Ferraro Donna and a few years later Franco Ferraro Uomo. Today this is a continuing story of creativity and success.
The secret of Franco Ferraro’s success is his style. His creations are the forerunners of fashion trends without excess, marked by balance and harmony. His garments are timeless and over the course of time retain all their charm as well as all the prestige of the finest materials.
Constant research for natural fabrics of the finest quality and new technological fibres, occasionally developed especially for his collections and yielding innovative performance, continues to be the distinctive mark of creations by Franco Ferraro, whose early experience with Lanerie Agnona has remained his strength.
On leaving Agnona he sets up his company Child, creating lines of clothing which meet the taste of diverse nations.
Beauty has no boundaries and his collections reach the markets of Japan, Korea, the Middle East, the United States, Australia and South Africa. His secret is the use of fine fabrics in a kind of fashionwear that looks at once casual and elegant.
