Sara Battaglia – The Italian girl that build a colourful empire at the age of 26 | Chic Every Week
Sara Battaglia is a fashion designer from Italy and the founder of the Sara Battaglia fashion label. Known for her riotous, rainbow-bedecked handbags and equally slick clothing collection, this Milanese local is something of a style savant. Giovanna and Sara Battaglia Sara was growing up in a very creative household - her mother was a sculptor and her father was a painter. Designer’s siblings are all working in the fashion industry, including the stylist and fashion icon - Giovanna Battaglia. Since a very young age, Sara had a freedom to create things from the scratch. Asked when did she decide about becoming a designer, Sara says: “It was making clothes for my Barbie as a child – such a cliché, but true. I remember stealing a piece of fabric from my mother to make my first handbag when I was six. She was very upset…” After graduating in Arts at the Brera Academy, the designer moved from Milan to Florence and then Paris, until she decided to establish her atelier back in Milan. In
