Francesco Ballestrazzi


Sometimes, in life, a negative experience can have a silver lining. Francesco Ballestrazzi discovered a deep artistic talent thanks to a fall! He was a professional ballet dancer but an injury forced him to change his path completely. Leading him to design shop windows for Moschino, here he learned about all kinds of different materials and how to combine them together in the best way. In 2014 he launched his personal brand, and just a few years later he started selling his spectacular hats in around 30 shops worldwide. Since 2018, he works with a smaller select group of shops to allow more space for his creativity. He teaches his art at important fashion academies and universities in Milan, such as Polytechnic University, Istituto Marangoni and Naba, and New Academy of Fine Arts.
