The ‘Queen of Chiffon’ opened up shop at the tender age of 18 in Cattolica, Italy and there was no looking back. Ferretti started her line in 1980 and created a name for herself with her free-flowing and feminine designs. The designer is famous for turning her staple materials—chiffon, draped georgette, charmeuse and satin—into red-carpet creations. In 1984, she launched a younger, more causal line called Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti which soon became a huge hit. Her brother Massimo, is also part of the company, and produces Moschino, Moschino Cheap&Chic, Jean Paul Gaultier, etc.
