How are you?
I’m fine thanks.
Tell us more about you and where you were born and raised?
I was born and grew up in Naples, in the south of Italy.
Why was fashion design your chosen path?
Actually, it just happened. After high school, I was looking for something to study outside of Naples, my only interest was fashion, not really a big fan, but I was fascinated with it. So, I said “ok, let’s try it!”. During the start of University I knew I chose right. My way. My path.
What topics do you like to focus on?
Usually I love to focus on “The way I wear clothes”. I really don’t care about the people, about what they think about me.
My way to wear clothes is just borderline between menswear and womenswear. And my decision to put “the garments on men” it’s just because I really like to play with them, everything is connected with the relationship that I had with my father and with the society.
My inspiration is myself. I work always with my negative experiences because for me it’s a different way to process it and grow up.
Why did you of down the path of genderless for the new collection?
I chose, this time, to work genderless because I don’t like to put “tags” on everything. I don’t create fashion for men or women, I create fashion for people.
Do you think this is what you’ll continue to design?
Yes, at this moment, I think that I will continue in this way.
How would you describe your brand energy?
My brand energy I think is the idea that I have about gender. Non-conforming.
Where do you see the Alessandro brand in 5 years?
I hope to see Alessandro in 5 years in New York. This is my biggest dream. But I am realist, I live day by day. So let’s see.
Whats next for you?
Actually, I am moving to New York for some new projects.
