Francesca Belluomini is a quick-witted fashion veteran and an unapologetic style savant. She has lived in Miami long enough to know not to blink when peacocks cross the street. She is originally from Viareggio, Tuscany, the same region where Marquis Emilio Pucci and Guccio Gucci were born.
With a degree in Fashion Sociology and a master’s in Mass Media and Communication from the University of Florence, foundations which formed her unpretentious taste, Francesca has dedicated her entire career to fashion and style, and life choices have led her to live in fashion capitals like Milan, Paris and London where she sealed her unmistakable knack for mixing sartorial garments, local market finds, and vintage.
People always complimented her chic style and wanted to dress like her. They admired her ability to put things together with a nonchalant elegance. Her book “The Cheat Sheet of Italian Style” offers tools for every woman to achieve this flair by adapting their wardrobes to the Italian style.
SocialMiami.com, CBS Local Miami, TrustedClothes.com and Italian e-zine www.DDmag.it are some of the latest publications that have enjoyed her sharp and witty fashion writings. You can find her on www.FrancescaBelluomini.com where she voices her thoughts in a more intimate and personal manner.
