Dreams turn into a life-long reality for Calabrian couture creator, Anton Giulio Grande. He showcases his newest work exclusively for LO'AMMI.
As a child, Anton dreamed of designing clothes for the beautiful maidens, the show's protagonists, on Saturday evenings. He has succeeded in realizing this ambitious project thanks to his talent. As of now, Anton Giulio Grande is one of the favorite designers among the stars. Among the stars who wear his clothes: Valeria Marini, Alba Parietti, Nina Moric, Aida Yespica, Pamela Prati, Belen Rodriguez, Anna Kanakis, Eva Grimaldi, Elenoire Casalegno, Claudia Gerini, Manuela Arcuri, Anna Falchi. Fabio Fulco, Giorgio Pasotti, Marcus Schenkenberg, Natasha Stefanenko, Cristina Chiabotto, Anna Valle, Danny Quinn, and Martina Colombari. Lamezia Terme. Later, he studied at Polimoda in Florence (where he went to receive the "best student"award during the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the school), and then at FIT in New York. In 1996 he launched his brand. At only 23, he was selected to be in the Piazza di Spagna's fashion show, and in 2001, he achieved success having his work at Milano Collezioni; Furthermore, he worked for some of the most well- Anton Giulio Grande was born in known Maisons, such as Gattinoni and Sorelle Fontana.
Indeed, when he draws a template, he thinks of a woman who is not particularly only beautiful but also with a great personality. He imagines the type of woman who immediately makes themselves noticed when they enter a room and then is remembered by all who see her for a long time. But the success of his collections is not only linked to the visibility due to the spotlight of the star system but to the quality of garments that are made entirely by hand, relying on the artisanal experience of his hand in laboratories where a sewing machine is not needed. Inevitably, considering his Calabrian origin, he is welcomed by the figure of the most famous designer of this region, Gianni Versace. Although Anton Giulio is no longer a boy prodigy, he is considered Calabria's beautiful promise and an established professional in the world of high fashion.
