Feben, the Ethiopian designer selected by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for the Supported by Dolce&Gabbana project, showcased her Speed collection during Milan Fashion Week in Via Broggi 23.


Her runway showcased an embodiment of energy and sensuality, adorned in inclusive and sustainable garments that blend vibrant prints, textured fabrics, and eclectic embellishments.

A contemporary and cosmopolitan woman

Feben’s Speed collection encapsulates her surrealistic style, infusing each creation with a rich tapestry of global inspiration and influences. Original silhouettes, ranging from fluid dresses with pointed hems inspired by African traditions to sharply tailored suits in vibrant hues, giving rise to mesmerizing optical illusions characterized by colourful tights, tulle gloves, and stiletto heels.


This authentic, multifaceted, and distinctly feminine aesthetic, rooted in craftsmanship, seamlessly integrates with the creative universe of Dolce&Gabbana.

“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”.
