Remember this name alert! Barbara Casasola has been announced as the new women's guest designer for next year's Pitti Uomo/Pitti W in Florence in January. "[She] is a young woman who has worked with a number of top fashion houses," Pitti's director of communication Lapo Cianchi explains. "She is proud of her homeland, Brazil, but has chosen to live and work in London, in a highly competitive environment. All her work is produced in Italy and this is another reason why we are interested in her. We are convinced that she is on the verge of taking her place on the front line of international women's fashion and that is why we offered her a platform at Pitti." Casasola spent two years as a womenswear assistant at Roberto Cavalli and showed her collection for the first time during London Fashion Week in September.
