“Alberta’s sensibility is full of energy and when linked to her heritage, is interpreted in a unique manner for Macy’s Impulse,” said Nicole Fischelis, Macy’s group vice president and fashion director. “The collection is full of surprises with fabulous crochet and lacy knits, sensuous draped dresses and whimsical prints that translate into a color palette evoking the sky and the sea of the coast of Amalfi, the sophistication of Capri and the Italian lifestyle.”
Alberta Ferretti always knew she was destined for the fashion industry. With a couturier as a mother, she spent her childhood surrounded by seamstresses in the laboratory of a dressmaker’s workshop. She opened her first boutique at a very young age, and soon after decided to design and produce her first collection where she experimented with all she had learned about high-quality finishing and accurate execution. During the 80’s, she founded the eponymous company in San Giovanni in Marignano, and presented her collection on the catwalks of Milan, the capital of pret-a-porter. Another line was soon added to the main collection: “Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti”, a younger and more urban line. In 2010, Alberta Ferretti launched her bridal collection “Forever ,” and in 2011, at Pitti Immagine she presented her demi-couture collection Alberta Ferretti “Limited Edition .” The company soon grew with the implementation of a corporate structure, as a result of the arrival of her brother Massimo, who today is the Chairman of Aeffe SpA, the corporate umbrella for brands such as Alberta Ferretti, Moschino, Jean Paul Gaultier, Pollini, Cacharel and the newborn Cedric Charlier. The Alberta Ferretti presence continues to strengthen worldwide with boutique openings in every fashion capital from New York to Los Angeles, Milan to Paris, Moscow to Tokyo, and London to Dubai.
