Brazilian born Delfrance Ribeiro is a true inspiration in fashion. From Vivienne Westwood, to Andreas Kronthaler, from London to Paris, Ribeiro shows how to beat the odds and follow your own light.
Delfrance Ribeiro left the brazilian state of Minas Gerais at the tender age of 18, he eventually moved to Milan to study fashion design at the Istituto Marangoni before moving to London to work for Vivienne Westwood. A few months into his tenure he was offered the opportunity to assist Vivienne’s spouse, Andreas Kronthaler, which sent him to Paris, to the City of Light.
While in Paris, Ribeiro studied at the Ecole de Chambre de Haute Couture before returning to Italy to obtain a master’s degree at the Institute Secoli. Shortly after, Ribeiro debuted his own collection of pret-a-porter. Made in Italy.
His new Spring 2016 collection visits a romantic world, where the desire to love conquers all. The Romanticism of the designer shines through in his creations; soft lines with minimal cuts are glamorous and feminine in luxurious textiles of silk, jacquard, and cotton inlays. Each dress celebrates the femininity of women, enhancing her form, using fabrics and color to emphasize the elegance and personality of the wearer.
The palette is in pure tones of black and white with intense shades of blue, red, and green.
The collection is available in stores and online. For more information, see the Delfrance Ribeiro website.
