Drawing inspiration from everything that surrounds her, Bianca is constantly searching for new sources of inspiration. Among others, nature occupies a special place here. “At the moment, I am working on organic printing where I implement an old process using leaves from trees,” shares Bianca. “My works are especially focused on natural fabrics. I only buy fabrics whose origin I know, as well as those that are manufactured in line with GOTS [Global Organic Textile Standard]. Besides that, I enjoy using vintage and second-hand clothes, which can easily be reused and reformed. Most of my previous collections were made from pre-owned clothes. I really love experimenting with it!”
Her fervour and determination to change the future of fashion led this young Italian designer to the Redress Design Award in Hong Kong, the largest sustainable fashion design competition in the world. In April 2020, she became a semi-finalist with her sustainable fashion collection based on recycling, up-cycling and repurposing materials, as well as the experimentation of organic printing on cotton fabric. For her “Organic Camouflage” collection, Bianca was inspired by the contrast between military uniforms and organic prints. Collecting old uniforms from retired Italian soldiers, she up-cycled these by combining them with cut-and-sew waste from her previous collection and added natural prints to give these relics a new life.
