About

Federico Protto

Federico Protto is a fashion designer and artist living and working in Vienna, Austria.

His oeuvre consists of a combination of various alternative presentation methods such as fashion design, art, styling, costume design, music performances, theory, and interdisciplinary projects.

Thus his vision is an symbiosis between all different aspects to evoke 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.

He wanders through Europe to find like-minded free spirits and wild elegances.

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.
