Fashion Designer - Fannie Schiavoni
Fannie Schiavoni is a London based womenswear label established in
2009 by Fannie Åkerblom. Born in Sweden, Fannie moved to London at the age of
18 to study tailoring at London College of Fashion, where she later progressed
to the BA Fashion Design Womenswear course.
Having completed a number of
internships alongside her studies for designers including Hussein Chalayan and
Giles Deacon, she then launched her first collection before graduating in
spring 2009. Browns Focus bought the eponymous collection and in the same year,
she received the prestigious NEWGEN Award from the British Fashion Council. She
continued to receive the award for three consecutive seasons.
Fannie Schiavoni is currently
stocked internationally in leading retailers including Moda Operandi NY, Lane
Crawford shanghai, Opening Ceremony Japan and Curve Ny/LA/Miami. Revered
globally by press and buyers alike, her designs have also been embraced by high
profile artists including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, FKA Twigs, Alicia Keys, Miley
Cryus and Katy Perry.
She has collaborated with designers such as Alexandre
Vauthier, Matthew Miller and Craig Lawrence, as well as created commissioned
one-off pieces for Rihanna, Interview Magazine, Lane Crawford and Diesel Art
Gallery. All Fannie Schiavoni pieces are
made by hand in London.
