 When Francesca Castellano welcomes you to her eclectic atelier in the heart of London- you are actually stepping into a timeless space where haute couture is celebrated both for women and dogs.

Minimal furniture, modernist aesthetics, sustainable fabrics- you cannot help but admire how flawless she manages to embody Italian classiness, her distinctive vision, and plenty of talent- everything is reflected in her “playground” studio and sketches.






The young Italian Couturier- she feels best when she designs. Her main focus is on timeless pieces/ lines dedicated to ageless style as a thread between her classic Italian roots and the avant-garde Berlin work experience and education; from this perfect fusion of cultures derives “LES FOLLIES” and “VANITAS”- the two timeless clothing lines launched by Francesca Castellano. When you say Francesca Castellano, you also say BESPOKE.

Bespoke is essentially your imagination coming to life. The brand offers this one of a kind service that provides you with a uniquely exclusive tailor-made garment. The bespoke womenswear range extends anywhere from dresses, jackets, skirts, tops, suits &, anything else that comes to mind. At Francesca Castellano are used the most superior quality fabrics and leathers, you can choose from a beautiful range of natural fabrics, and appliqué creating a timeless garment just for you.

There’s a meaningful process of creations behind every timeless clothing item. “I love creating, and there’s nothing in-between, nothing anonymous, nothing that hides your personality...” Francesca Castellano says. Her inspiration comes from everywhere and everyone: “You need to be open to find beauty around you…” 

The design details are really important- they are exquisite, and they convey unicity to each garment. Francesca often thinks of Italy, her “Belpaese”when drawing her luxury pieces. There’s certainly a classy Italian touch in every single sketch.

Through her far-sighted “fashion”, Francescca Castellano pushed dogswear style towards luxury, innovation, and sustainability. A “promiscuous” dog’s world where dog clothes are dazzling.

All fashion designers take inspiration from their day-to-day life stories, and so did Francesca, when she decided to create a festive luxurious garment with Swarovski embellishments  for Bella- the beloved Chihuahua of her friends; what came as a spontaneous thought to surprise her peers with a special gift on Christmas turned soon into a whole high-end canine collection. Her ultra-futuristic vision made her one of the first in the competitive fashion industry to re-design & revolutionize the dogswear style through the touch of luxury.

As well, high-end fashion goes hand-in-hand with sustainability, and therefore, the entire dogswear fashion line is made from deadstocks and leftovers from womenswear collection.

The many different mixed breed dogs type of silhouettes extend the entire bespoke tailoring process to almost two weeks- a time frame much needed in order to obtain an oustanding premium product.

Making adjustments until the customers are pleased with the design, fabrics, and extra details of their dog's bespoke garment is part of Castellano’s brand philosophy.



With exquisite garments including contemporary dog hoodies, cute dog bandanas, fancy dog jumpers and much more meteoric dog accessories, Francesca Castellano steals the show when it comes to canine couture worldwide, an avant-garde designer who rewrites the story of dogswear  fashion, turning it into a matter of luxury.
