Daddy's Little Girl

Rachele Cavalli, 20, is every inch her father Roberto’s daughter - confident, sexy and overtly fashionable.

“Our parents have a very strong sense of family,” says Rachele, who moved into a girly pink apartment in Milan two years ago complete with a canopy bed. “Hail or rain, we all flock back home, catch up on news, watch movies together, go for walks in Florence and meet around the table.”

However classically Italian those weekend gatherings may be, the fact that both parents spurred Rachele to leave the family home and seek her independence is not. Last year, she studied at the European Institute of Design, but realized design was not her calling. Now Rachele, who is fluent in English, German and French, is studying public relations at one of Milan’s universities. But while she won’t join the design team, Rachele does plan to work with her parents and her older stepsister Christiana, who is the company lawyer, to help expand the family business, hopefully starting out in one of its press offices.

“My parents ask for my advice,” Rachele says. “I guess I offer a younger point of view.”
