Federico Cina 2019

Federico Cina, a young designer from Emilia Romagna who founded his brand in 2019

Born in 1994 in a small town of three thousand inhabitants, Federico Cina expresses his origins through shapes and fabrics. The heart of Romagna, Sarsina, the fields and the farm tradition are relived through his clothes. Federico Cina first studied at the Polimoda in Florence, then in Japan at the Osaka Bunka Fashion College.

The collaborations with Brooks Brothers and Emilio Pucci followed, and the debut at AltaRoma in 2019 with the Romagna Mia collection. The same year, he won the “Who’s On Next?” and in July 2020, he debuted at the Milan Fashion Week with the “Corpi e luoghi” collection.

He transformed something that he hated when he was little, the fact he was born in a small town, into his strength.

After making his dream come true to live in a city in New York, Japan and Milan, he understood that was not his place di lui in the world, and he decided to return to Sarsina, where he rediscovered the magic of his land. The Romagna tablecloths, the local and Green fabrics, the Romagna coast; a nostalgic tale that looks to the future.
