WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?

My name is Alessandra (Alex) Montani. I was born in Rome and I think that this city, very rich of art, but also chaotic and decadent, has greatly influenced my idea of ​​beauty, like a feeling that comes from the past and constantly rushes towards the future. Even as a child, while the reality that surrounded me captured my eyes with its shapes and colors, my imagination always managed to add something different and unconventional. Today I manage to channel this desire for transformation and change through art and fashion. My projects are born through paths originated by events or situations that capture my sensitivity generating questions to be explored through historical and artistic research, forms and materials. I studied at the Liceo Classico Ennio Quirino Visconti in Rome, and I graduated in Fashion Design at Polimoda in Florence, where I was confronted with very different personalities who helped to grow and mature, but also to take me less seriously.

THE CONCEPT OF YOUR COLLECTION?

My BIOcentric collection speaks of spirituality, understood as a point of light that resides in each of us. The point of light is life in the world, which must be nurtured, respected and shared.

This concept in my opinion can not be considered only as far from the body, but something that starts from it. My clothes are light and comfortable, made to feel good: this is why I used materials like jersey and silk. The colors, which are essential for expressing one’s soul, are lively and bright. Each piece is embellished with prints, which are also inspired by Renaissance paintings, but the central theme is the recycling and respect for nature.
