Once disappointing and even asphyxiating, the Italian region of Romagna is now something that Federico Cina
takes pride in. When he dreamed of becoming a fashion designer, the little villages around him and the non-existing (corporate) fashion scene were something that made him want to escape. After chasing his dreams though, he’s coming back to it, imbuing some of the values he learned growing up – sincerity, humanity and transparency – into his collections. After presenting his Fall/Winter 2020 collection at Altaroma
, we sit down with the up-and-coming designer to discuss everything from showing in Milan in the future to the collection’s inspiration sources.
