Francesca Evangelista was born in Rome, Italy in 1984. Since her early years she expressed an innate creative aptitude that carried her through her formative years.
She refined these talents at the European Institute of Design in Rome, Italy, graduating in fashion design in 2005.
She then dove into her professional career as a ready-to-wear designer in Rome. Still in Rome but changing her medium, she became the senior assistant designer for an international handbag company, which opened her doors to the world of high-end fashion. Not only did she excel in handbag design, but it became her true passion.
This newfound love took her to Florence where she took a position as a multi-brand bag and belt designer for a design consulting company. Here she became enamored by the entire process - from design to manufacturing.
Having cemented a strong domestic acumen, she decided to take her talents across the Atlantic and began consulting and designing shoes and handbags for a New York based company. New York proved to be a very dynamic period: frequent traveling from New York to the Italian factory in Parabiago, Milan gave Francesca an opportunity to develop her business perspective and the New York scene added to her already flourishing creativity.
With substantial work experience and success under her belt, Francesca decided to go after her dream and started her own line of handbags
in 2012. Fusing two loves of every woman
, fine leather
and elegant designs, Francesca Evangelista now proudly offers an entirely hand Made-in-Italy
product to its costumers around the globe.
