After studying design at the prestigious American school Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Franco was approached to be a design assistant. After several years of training with Donna Karan and Lous Dell'Olio, Franco returned to his hometown and launched the FRANCO MIRABELLI collection.
His design talents have also been brought in to create original staff uniforms for the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, Canada's first and only opera house, and he was selected to create the visual look for the front-of-house staff at Toronto's first five-star hotel, The Hazelton, and at Mark McEwan's "One" Restaurant.
The Fashion Group International of Toronto has honoured his achievements with a tribute evening: the Night of Stars. He has been awarded a Man of Style Award for his dapper personal style, and he was presented with a City of Toronto Industry Achievement award for Excellence in Fashion Design. He has also been named Designer of the Year by the City of Toronto, and has won the Arts and Culture Award from the Italian Chamber of Commerce.
He is a strong believer in giving back to the community that has supported him and has a long history of supporting numerous charities. He has lent both his product and his time to raising funds for events, such as the Celebration of Hope Fashion Show for the Markham Stouffville Hospital, Windfall Clothing, the National Ballet School, the Children's Miracle Network, the Hospital for Sick Kids, CANFAR, Red Cross International, the Teddy Bear Affair for the Children's Aid Foundation, the United Way, FACE, Fashion Cares, and the Canadian Cancer Society.
Mirabelli's label has developed a reputation as a hip, sophisticated line. His designs reflect his European roots, with an emphasis on luxurious European fabrics and precise tailoring. His signature style has been described as elegant, modern, and sexy.

Although the material may be a little heavy for summer, the fit is perfect for me. I am always looking for dresses that fit a small waisted, somwhat heavy chested woman (that would be me!)and this completely fits the bill.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Too BIG! :o(
This would have been a staple in my closet except it was just a little to big on top. Please, bring smaller sizes (size 4)! Thanks.
