Biography: Rebecca Pirosanto

Born in Sweden by Italian parents (her grandfather was born in Italy) and raised next to the sea in Långedrag in Gothenburg, Sweden. Rebeccas childhood summers were spent in both Italy or in Kungshamn (small rural fishing-town in Bohuslän, Sweden). She was early taught to fight for what she wanted. The interest in clothing and design was born spending time in her grandmothers cloth-shop, botanizing in fabrics, buttons and sewing-patterns. Her grandmother was the one who taught her to sew and showed her the different qualities and taught her to be inspired by the fabrics and materials.

As the years went by her parents more and more noticed her passion for design and fashion. They have always been 100% supporting her efforts and she received much help from them along the way. In 2006 her dad renovated a room in their basement and Rebecca got her first atelier/studio for which she is very grateful.

Rebecca has a hard time telling what her true sources of influences are, mostly because they are so many. Mostly she thinks that the feeling of creating and the possibilities it opens in relationship with the fabrics.

Her next goal is to get accepted into Tillskärarakademien, a school for learning cutting, pattern-making and sewing. Her ultimate goal is to be able to make a living from her designs. We at FashionFriend believes she has the right talents and capabilities to make dream come true!

Rebecca Pirosanto has no homepage at this moment but she is working on getting one and when it gets online FashionFriend will link to it. Her e-mail is rebecca.pirosanto[a]hotmail.com Photographs by Gustaf Nisses, text editing and image post-production by Peter Lindberg of FashionFriend
