“Fashion is about dreaming and making other people dream.” – Donatella Versace
Designer Diego Binetti started his collection “Love Binetti” after working as a fashion stylist for publications like Bvlgari and Italian Vogue and being educated as designer in Milan, Italy. “Love Binetti” as a collection is the culmination of Diego’s time working as a designer for brands like Jill Stuart, Kyuso and Abaco-Italy. Diego aims to present not only a fashion collection, but a lifestyle that is desirable and empowering to the modern woman. Diego hopes that “Love Binetti” will bring a bit of luxury into everyone’s wardrobe.
With Love, Diego Binetti
