WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?

I was born and raised in Abano Terme, a corner of the Veneto area, where I always liked to live. In the chaos of Italian fashion schools I chose to attend the “IUAV” of Venice and for three years I cutting, sewing and shooting there. Thanks to a “Condé Nast” scholarship, I could continue my master studies, mixed to a semester at “Parsons”, The New School of Design, in New York. In New York there not enough time and hardly ever the lights keep you company day and night, the body and mind are constantly stimulated and creative stresses accumulate and stratify incessantly.

THE CONCEPT OF YOUR COLLECTION

There are not concepts, but only sensations.
New York, 12/06 / 2015. Adam, sitting between the 13th and 5th street, a homeless, now middle-aged, or maybe not, who remembers. A shirt of AC-DC, was his favorite sweater, and it is too broken to use it. He gives me, I take it, I will give him luck. I tear one here, where I can add, tears, the cut, the board, the sew again. Adam is happy.

A project who wants to give new activity to that which now is old, smells, and perhaps is forgotten. I went to “Caritas” to collect several pieces, all different. Clipping them all, yet I remove them, edit them. evolve them. New bases. Are the boys of “Children Underground” to influence me, as long as the volumes grow, the sleeves are getting longer, the chains together. The cardboard back to touch the body, and then tears, creates levels, cuts asymmetric shapes, larger and smaller, broken lines, but always consistent with each other. I feel at home.
