Head Designer Fiona Germaine grew up living and breathing fashion. At a very young age it was the visuals and different cultures
that fascinated, intrigued and inspired her. Fiona has always turned to fashion for creative expression.
Fiona continued her studies after school with a Bachelor of Arts in Fashion & International Studies at UTS & has a Diploma in Business. Fiona studied at IULM Milano in 2010 whilst working for brands such as Francesco Sconamiglio & Missoni having worked previously as a design assistant with Australia’s key labels since 2005.
Fiona’s inspiration calls on people, their places, their travels & their culture.
Breathing nostalgia from the era of jet-setting and global socialites, Fiona melds personality and places into her designs.
Vivid imagery, art & colours found in idyllic holiday destinations and opulent details discovered in the buzzing and inspiring cities are all part of the creative content behind a collection.
Highly aspirational, the brand Allegra Lombardi is all about La Dolce Vita. Fiona strongly believes in creating a dreamy and decisive mode of dressing for a strong woman- a part of every woman- who knows what she wants.
When Fiona designs a collection she designs a personality: whimsical & flirty, glamorous & intelligent, slightly paradoxical but always real. Her love for Italy and Made-in-Italy is reflected in her Dolce Vita design aesthetic imbued with effortlessness that is the Australian lifestyle, her upbringing she is so proud of.
