Born in Trieste, Renato Balestra comes from a family of architects and engineers and after a childhood steeped in the Mid-European cultural environment of the area, he too began studying for a degree in civil engineering. However, even from the earliest days of his youth, he dedicated his much of his time to artistic activities, including both painting and music, and devoted several hours a day to studying the piano. He is still a passionate connoisseur of both classical music and opera. It was not until the last year of his engineering studies, however, that he became involved in fashion, creating a design in response to a bet made among friends. Without his knowledge, the result was sent to Milan and, to his great surprise, he was invited to participate in the creation of an haute couture collection. It is fair to say that fashion chose Renato Balestra, rather than Renato Balestra choosing fashion. The move from Milan to Rome was rapid and although still undecided on exactly what path to take, Renato Balestra was convinced that his future lay in design. For a number of years, he designed for the theatre,the cinema and, naturally, the fashion world until the success of the first Renato Balestra label collections convinced him to choose the latter option. From Via Sistina, where the Balestra shop had its headquarters, he began his rise to international fame,developing and creating a variety of activities. Today, Renato Balestra designs and markets approximately thirty different ranges that include haute couture and ready-to-wear collections, a complete line of men’s wear and a wide range of accessories. His private clients include prestigious names from all over the world. Renato Balestra has designed clothes for the Empress Farah Diba, the Queen of Thailand, the first ladies of the Philippines and Egypt, Saudi Arabian Princesses and for leading celebrities of the international jet-set, not forgetting, of course, famous actresses.
