Australian Fashion Week: Fernando Frisoni
Fernando Frisoni was born in Sao Paulo. He studied journalism and did time at Vogue Brazil. He arrived in Sydney in 2000 and fast made a name for himself as a stylist to the stars, dressing the likes of Marcia Hines, Toni Collette and Sam Neill.
In 2002, Frisoni launched his column, ‘Urban Style’, in The Sun-Herald, for which he photographs the city’s most stylish people on the streets. ‘Urban Style’ has developed a cult following, and is frequently referenced by the fashion set.
Frisoni has friends all through the industry and is in constant contact with fashion PRs, journalists, editors and tastemakers. This puts him in a unique position to know what’s right for now, and how to get it.
Fernando Frisoni and Nicola Finetti entered into partnership in 2006 to establish Frisoni Finetti menswear label.
Finetti met Frisoni five years ago when the latter was styling celebs in his clothes, and the pair have been firm friends ever since.
In OPT Frisoni presened modern nomad style collection for man an woman looked remarkably unisex . Show was opened with a bang thanks to the youngest model on the runway all week .
The young boy had enough attitude to show the seasoned models how it’s done and won the crowd over just by simply being there.
