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.

IMMORTALITY & FASHION (A GARDEN PARTY)
Exploring the dimensions of fashion immortality, this collection aims to retract theoretical and historical research. Each outfit is personified in playful metaphors associated with the guests of our feast. These characters come together for a theatrical meeting. They join us: The gardener of Paradise, Marie Antoinette, the Queen of the Fairies, St. Veronika, the executioner, the Phantom of the Sheet and, of course, the genie of the bottle!
