MEET FRANCESCA GIOBBI
The woman behind the brand

Francesca Giobbi is an Italian-Brazilian self made business woman, speaker, business consultant and mother, with over 27 years of experience in the fashion, beauty and Lifestyle industries.

Her love for fashion took her to Milan where she graduated from the IED (Instituto Europeo di Design) and began working in the industry as a showroom saleswoman for high end luxury brands such as Versace, Donna Karan, Miu Miu, Jil Sander, Armani and Sergio Rossi.

While this experience provided her with valuable know how in the areas of design, marketing and international sales and distribution, it also showed her the harsh reality of how luxury brands outsource production in third world countries, with no respect for human rights, namely those of women and children. This was a turning point for Francesca, who decided to dedicate her life to creating a more conscious and ethical fashion Industry, that took care of all those involved.

She spent over 5 years travelling the world, researching and creating a comprehensive archive on the fashion industry, comprised by more than 45.000 pictures and videos, illustrating the truth behind this industry, before creating FreedomeE: , a circular economy platform with the ability to develop ethical products and services, through a Human 2 Human commerce exchange and global community focused on promoting positive impacts on a social, environmental and economic level.
