I am Cecilia Pelleri, Fashion Designer and Stylist. I am not a sedentary person, I consider myself a free spirit, in need of novelty and stimulation, after all it’s normal to want to please all the personalities that live in my body. What influenced me in my childhood was Hip Hop culture, in all its facets, which has always represented me, even though its origins lie elsewhere. It was transmitted to me through dance, which accompanied me for 15 years. Born and raised in a small town in Piedmont in the middle of the countryside, where fashion is hidden among the skirts of old ladies at the market, I was driven by the need to follow my curiosity, my constant desire to observe, touch and learn in order to develop new ideas. All this fed my creativity, not only in the artistic field, but also as an ability to “think outside the box” to find original solutions to problems. Here I am, a few years later, in Florence, a city of art, where I concluded my studies in 2019 at the IED. Here I had the chance to start gaining experience in the field, relating to already established professionals. Wherever I have been I have stolen with my eyes, someone or something. Wherever I have been, I have stolen with my eyes, someone or something, seeing the beautiful in the ugly or where others do not see it. And it is from this concept that my project starts: Capo delle fate Studio.
THE CONCEPT OF YOUR COLLECTION?
Capo delle fate Studio is a genderless brand based on upcycling, using only previously loved clothes or waste materials, giving them a new life with added value, thus preventing them from becoming trash. It is a sustainable brand that tries to respect the environment as much as possible (90%) in every process of the production cycle.
Each garment is the result of an intuitive experiment, from which a unique and special piece is created, made entirely by hand. I give a lot of importance to manual skills, everything is in fact made by me, specifically: the hours required for the design of the garments, the research of materials, the realization of the pieces, not to mention the packaging and delivery. The aim is to give a positive meaning to the term ‘waste’, which is not yet taken for granted. The first ‘Dress the Culture’ drop was launched on 26 March 2021.’Dress the Culture’ talks about current events, committing to reduce the environmental impact by extending the life cycle of materials, thus being an eye for the future, a point of inspiration not to stop thinking about what is happening around us and how things can be changed. In fact, as I mentioned before, by obtaining discarded fabrics from local companies or searching for garments that are no longer used, I focus my research on upcycling (pre and post consumer). The result is a dynamic streetwear line, inspired by a mix of elements from my background, such as hip hop culture, the perseverance not to waste anything and the natural and very colourful environments that have always surrounded me. It is a mix of layering, both techniques and textures, combined with bright colours. The techniques used are patchwork and tie dye using natural colours.
WHAT ARE YOUR LUCIDITY PILLS?
I consider myself not very lucid as a person, I rely on my instincts so I would say “Why not?”.
