Feben is an Ethiopian designer who grew up in Sweden, currently based in London where she founded her brand, after completing her studies at Central Saint Martins MA as an Isabella Blow Scholar. Feben takes inspiration and influences from all over the world. Created in collaboration with Katie Grand: Feben is the new designer that will be supported by the brand, following Miss Sohee, Matty Bovan, Tomo Koizumi and Karoline Vitto.

Imbued with a surrealist allure, her designs seamlessly merge matter and form, creating optical illusions that manifest as a blend of distinctive silhouettes and vibrant and intense prints. Dolce&Gabbana is dedicated to supporting Feben in bringing her new collection to life, encompassing every aspect of the entire project, from providing textiles and materials to its debut on the runway at the Dolce&Gabbana building on via Broggi 23 in Milan during the upcoming Milano Fashion Week in February 2024.

“Feben’s creativity is energetic, vibrant and sensual. We really like her authentic approach focused on Fatto a Mano (hand-crafted): her collaborations with artisans from all over the world guided us on our choice to support her work. We are truly happy that this project has become a seasonal appointment that has given a great opportunity to many talents to pursue their path: it’s a result that really motivates us to continue this project,” say Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.

“I feel incredibly honoured to have been selected to showcase my work with Dolce&Gabbana for Autumn/Winter 2024-25. It will be the brand’s first show in Milano Fashion Week which is such a privilege and the support gives the brand an opportunity to evolve and reach new audiences. I’m so grateful to have been chosen to participate on this exciting new journey,” Feben adds.
