Alberta Ferretti began her career in fashion, at the age of 18. After the successful launch of her boutique, she launched her self-titled label in 1974. With a focus on creating romantic, uber-feminine designs, Ferretti has become known for her draping techniques that create fanciful floor-length gowns and whimsical looks that are regularly shown at Milan Fashion Week. The design house released its sister label, Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti in 1984, with the aim to give a playful spin on the main collection. Her timeless designs are reworked with a contemporary spin to include chiffon playsuits and chic embellished jackets. The Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti range of belts continues this approach, with youthful designs from embellished, bold styles through to chain detail belts.
