DESIGN GENIUS: LONDON
“I’m very competitive and I actually like a little drama because I’m Latino, we love drama.”
Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, Giancarlo is an American fashion designer, stylist and creative consultant that is currently based in Miami, Florida. His appreciation for creativity began at a young age thanks to his mother’s sewing classes, where he learned to appreciate the aesthetic richness, elegance and diverse heritage of Venezuelan women. His first artistic endeavor was with architecture, but soon found another way to express himself when he found fashion. Giancarlo was formally educated at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, the Miami International University of Art and Design and the Style Design College in Milan. Armed with the knowledge of lines, volume and structure from his architectural background, Gian opened his atelier in the United States. Shortly after, he received international recognition and is a proud member of the South Florida fashion group.
