Federico Protto is a fashion designer and artist living and working in Budapest, Hungary, and Vienna, Austria. His oeuvre consists of a combination of various alternative presentation methods combining fashion design, art, styling, costume design, music performances, theory, and interdisciplinary projects.
Thus his vision is a symbiosis between all different aspects of creative freedom, rejecting the conventional processes of the fashion industry and stepping into all the fields of the spectrum, he strengthens the bond between the Dasein as young fashion designers in the 21st century and reality.
Federico Protto graduated from University of Applied Arts, Vienna, in 2017, under the professorship of Hussein Chalayan and Bernhard Willhelm.
He worked for Michael Sontag, Berlin, Hildur Yeoman, Iceland and Marques’Almeida, London.

Sophocles’ Antigone is one of the most analyzed and interpreted tragedies. Now the figurehead is exhausted. Antigone doesn’t want to be our material, but our role model.
Antigone 2020 is a costume design collection created for a cross-disciplinary event embracing performance, dance, video, music, and theater. This event presented at the Schwere Reiter theatre in Munich by 17 artistic positions is hosted by the collective rendezvous3000. At ModaLisboa, the collection is presented in a specifically developed installation format.
