Federico Curradi was born in Florence in 1975. Following an initial experience with a Florentine tailor-shop, where he learned the basic secrets of the craft, he was just over twenty when he moved to New York where he made a collection of men’s trousers. Next, he designed a collection for the American market and immediately earned the admiration of the best fashion stores in the Big Apple. Upon his return to Italy he was noticed by stylist Ermanno Daelli who put him in charge of the Scervino men’s style office. After that, he designed the Roberto Cavalli men’s collection, and then went on to become the creative director for Iceberg Uomo, working with other labels, such as Dunhill, in the meantime.
