Born in Pesaro on July 29, 1973, Andrea has always lived in a creative environment. His father is an architect and his mother is passionate of painting. He grew up in his grandmother’s fashion shop and at 8 decided he wanted to be a designer.

After getting a diploma in fashion design at The Institute of Art in Pesaro, he went on to achieve a master’s degree in fashion design at Marangoni, Milan, in 1995.

Soon after graduation, he went straight into the world of fashion where he developed his Italian sensitivity, international vision and refined high design skills. He has worked for some of the most important Italian and international fashion and luxury brands including Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Prada, Calvin Klein and Yves Saint Laurent, developing a sophisticated and at the same time relaxed style, with a strong focus on high quality.

In January 2010 he launched his first eponymous autumn/winter 2011 mens start-up collection.
