Dear Life.

Born and raised in Rome, Italy, the love for art and fashion began in Nino’s childhood when his uncle gave him his first camera and he used to photograph and watch his mother, a seamstress, sewing clothes at home.

Nino moved to New York City and received a full scholarship to FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology). Having been an assistant designer to Ralph Lauren, Giorgio di Sant'Angelo and Ron Shamask, Nino sharpened his knowledge of fabric, color, silhouette, texture, construction – all the elements of good design.

His style is rooted in the classic, yet contemporary, and always striving for the element of surprise and a touch of unique edge.

Nino's Fashion, Lifestyle and Celebrity images have appeared in Harper's Bazaar, Hamptons, Downtown, Men's Health, etc.

Creative Director and a faculty member of the Fashion Design Department at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising).
