Minimalissimo Magazine

"I was struck at once by the clothes' exquisite agility. These pieces are not designed for women who keep quiet and stand still. Graceful and vigorous at the same time, they celebrate the moving person within while elegantly shaping her exterior."

What Should We Do

"Looking for a statement piece? Look no further. The luxury brand’s pieces—draped in Brooklyn and manufactured in Peru—include bold black and white jumpsuits, color-blocked shirts, and pants with a modern silhouette."

Somos Magazine

"Tiene 29 años, ha trabajado con Oscar de la Renta y ya tiene una marca propia: Port Zienna. La peruana Francesca Cánepa debutará en la pasarela LIFWeek este octubre. Sus diseños –atemporales y ultra chic– se han presentado en las semanas de la moda de Nueva York y Vancouver. ¿Cuál es el secreto detrás de su éxito?"

El Comercio

"Port Zienna refleja minimalismo puro. Bajo el lienzo del binomio ganador: blanco y negro, vestidos, conjuntos, blusas, faldas y camisetas básicas impregnaban el desfile de simplicidad pero sin dejar lo sofisticado de lado. Ni estampados ni bordados a la mira, solo una explosión de drapeado, técnica que caracteriza a la diseñadora."

Somos Magazine

"La firma de la diseñadora peruana Francesca Canepa, con base en Nueva York, presentó Collection No. III SS19. El punto de inspiración fue la estética minimalista del escultor estadounidense Richard Serra y el artista danés Troels Sandegård, y la fuerza de las onnabugeishas."

Viú! El Comercio

"Entre sus méritos está haber trabajado en el estudio de J. Mendel, en el que conoció el ready-to-wear; en Oscar de la Renta, donde se dedicó al drapeado; y en Finesse, la casa que borda para Burberry, Tom Ford y Carolina Herrera."

"Working in NYC’s Garment District at Finesse Embroideries, Canepa also designs embroideries for Burberry, Tom Ford, Carolina Herrera, and Monique Lhuillier.
