About Fernando Frisoni:
Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Fernando has a long standing history with the fashion industry. Working for Vogue Brasil, Fernando left his role to move to Australia in 2000. Once in Australia, he worked as a stylist dressing celebrities such as Toni Colette and Marcia Hines. In 2003, he launched ‘Urban Style’, his own style page in the Sun Herald documenting fashion on the streets of Sydney. In 2006, Fernando teamed up with renowned designer Nicola Finetti to create the menswear line Frisonifinetti. Well received across the board, Fernando left this collaboration to begin his own line FERNANDO FRISONI in 2008. Focusing on high end designer menswear, Fernando Frisoni offers distinguished designs in the most luxurious of fabrics. The emphasis is on modern classicism, with impeccable shirting sitting alongside relaxed tailoring and avant-garde inspirations. The Frisoni man is thoroughly modern and always beautifully dressed. From these collections women have been calling out to Fernando to design for them as well. For SS09/10, he launched his first collection of womenswear, a small capsule range in the same tone as his menswear. The instant positive response has ensured that coming collections will see the womenswear expand and grow.
