Fabio Quaranta is a mature Italian designer that once understood how to deal with experimentation in the fashion world, how to make a full-of-soul outfit from a mental question mark.

As important as the imagination for who devotes to a creative process.
Trying to be timeless but always desirable.
“To turn a Homeless into a Prince for a while.”
I cannot do anything else.
Just as a good designer.
