For Restless Sleepers
Francesca Ruffini, known by her monogram F.R.S., created For Restless Sleepers in 2016.
Born in Como, Italy, Francesca grew up in a town renowned for its silk production and heritage. The rich tapestry of her surroundings, both geographically and culturally, played a significant role in shaping her artistic sensibilities and fueling her passion for fashion.
Francesca's journey into fashion began during her high school years, where she attended an institute specialized in silk, the only one of its kind in Italy. Immersed in the world of luxurious fabrics, she discovered a profound fascination for the intricate beauty and history woven into each piece. This love affair with silk inspired her to delve deep into the archives of Como's oldest fashion houses, some of which boasted a remarkable legacy spanning over a century.
When asked about her perception of fashion, Francesca eloquently expressed, "For me, fashion is something you carry inside." Her approach to style transcends fleeting trends, rejecting the notion of constant change with each passing season. Instead, she steadfastly embraces her personal taste, staying true to her own artistic vision.
