Fabiana Gabellini Made to Measure: the art of dressing
“Either you are a work of art or you wear it” – Oscar Wilde
Fabiana Gabellini, young fashion designer from Cattolica, since the founding of her homonymous brand in 2012, has shared the phrase of the famous playwright and writer Oscar Wilde.
Graduated as an “Expert in Fashion and Costume”, she continued her studies at the Carlo Bo University in Urbino, obtaining a degree in “Fashion Design” and, in 1999, immediately began prestigious collaborations with famous fashion brands: Alberta Ferretti, Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, Ozbek. Fabiana has also created the costumes for the opera season at the Rossini Theatre in Pesaro, presented her collections at Milan Fashion Week, Cinecittà, Altaroma and, at the Gam Museum in Milan, collaborated with the Ada Danze Antiche Association for a tribute to Isadora Dunkan. She has also participated in 3 editions of the Art & Music event in Rome created by the great artistic director Michele Spanò.
Young and determined, with a remarkable background, in 2017 she created ‘Art to Wear’: a project in which the protagonists are the paintings of contemporary artists printed on silk and used for the realization of her Haute Couture creations in limited edition. In 2019, Fabiana Gabellini opened her first flagship store in the heart of Cattolica, in Via Matteotti 26, an exclusive boutique where family tradition blends with modernity. Fabiana Gabellini’s sartorial creations emphasize and enhance every woman through the use of fine materials, handmade workmanship, the richness of decorations, the architectural construction of the custom-made dress, the colors, elegance, femininity, totally customizable style.
The passion for Dance, Music, Theatre are a source of great inspiration for Fabiana Gabellini, who always manages to blend art and fashion in a very balanced way because she is aware that both have the purpose of communicating a message that can be innovative, revolutionary or strictly individual. At the heart of Fabiana Gabellini’s couture collections there is always the concept that ‘the dress makes the monk’ not simply because it dresses her but even more because it distinguishes her revealing her style and personality.
It becomes reductive to consider Fabiana Gabellini’s fashion as simple trendy garments because her creations are a combination of art, tradition, innovation, mirror of the society in which we live.
The elegance of her outfits are the synthesis of style, grace and individuality. Fabiana creates clothes with a particular charm, with finishes and stitching of the past, using noble materials, dedicated to a demanding, refined clientele, who loves an original style, by unmistakable class and great refinement. The outfits, although revisited and reworked in a modern key, are unquestionably Classic-Chic: seductive but, at the same time, easy to wear; a double exercise in style to achieve looks that, like dreams, are evanescent and timeless. An ensemble of garments enriched by the most precious workmanship, by Fabiana Gabellini’s very personal creative interpretation that wants to be the expression of an excellent Made in Italy, which she herself considers a commitment and a privilege, to be worn with pride.
A mix of textures and lines, with a simple and well-defined cut, lead back to the golden age of French and Italian couture, skilfully mixed with an abstract vocation for modern art. A precise but different style that creates an exceptional liaison between the allure of yesteryear and a decisive and serene vision of the future.
The dresses, perfect for a diner en ville, are romantic, graceful, seductive and practical, a passe-partout for the multifaceted day of the modern businesswoman that goes from work to worldly occasions. Unique and exclusive collections that Fabiana Gabellini dedicates to the “unique” woman who will wear them.
