DAVID: I started from industrial design. For me the approach with the product is poetic and there is no distinctions for fashion and industrial design, it’s the same method for all.
ALESSIA: I studied fashion design and in parallel with studies I follow a personal project with my brand.
How did you start working with fashion?
For passion. It’s something that you own and that occurs at any time of life
What is elegance for you?
DAVID: the true elegance is to be oneself and express one's being and not just look at the appearance of the dress.
ALESSIA: Decontraction, a dress that enhances a woman and not the opposite.
Other experiences in fashion?
We're both designers.
ALESSIA: I worked at Costume National, as well as consultant for different companies. I won the contest "NEXT GENERATION"
DAVID: From Karla Otto communication agency in Italy to Italian independent, besides my work as a consultant.
We are experimenting the world of the image in cinema, hoping to put together and give shape to a project very soon.
