Alberta Ferretti always knew she was destined for the fashion industry. With a couturier as a mother, she spent her childhood surrounded by seamstresses in the laboratory of a dressmaker’s workshop. She opened her first boutique at a very young age, and soon after, decided to design and produce her first collection where she experimented with all she had learned about high-quality finishing and accurate execution. During the 80’s, she founded the eponymous company in San Giovanni in Marignano, and presented her collection on the catwalks of Milan, the capital of pret-a-porter. Another line was soon added to the main collection: Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, a younger and more urban line. In 2010, Alberta Ferretti launched her bridal collection Forever, and in 2011, at Pitti Immagine she presented her demi-couture collection Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition. The company soon grew with the implementation of a corporate structure, as a result of the arrival of her brother Massimo, who today is the Chairman of Aeffe SpA, the corporate umbrella for brands such as Alberta Ferretti, Moschino, Jean Paul Gaultier, Pollini, Cacharel and the newborn Cedric Charlier. The Alberta Ferretti presence continues to strengthen worldwide with boutique openings in every fashion capital from New York to Los Angeles, Milan to Paris, Moscow to Tokyo, and London to Dubai.
