FASHIONEXPERIENCE - the fashion team from Monaco, composed of a photographer, a stylist and a make-up artist - presented in May 2016 a fashion designer Alessio Visone at the Carré Doré Gallery Monte-Carlo.
FASHIONEXPERIENCE mixed pieces from different artists and artfields in one fashion shooting, centred on Alessio Visone's new collection. Alessandra Libonati Jewels, Irina Koshkina Milinery, vintage design pieces and art from the Carré Doré collection helped to create a special setting for a presentation of the Artist Alessio Visone.
Alessandra Libonati was born in Naples, Italy.
She studied art under the guidance of Gianfranco Ferré, obtained her Masters degree in fashion design at the Domus Academy in Milan and a Master degree in gemology.
Alessandra worked with various renowned jewelry houses, with an ongoing curiosity for the arts, where she found her inspiration. She channels all of the above into her exquisitely and uniquely hand-crafted jewellery. In 1990 she got a patent for two techniques of elasticising fur, which she uses in the production of fashion items for her family business, renown throughout the whole of Italy.
Alessandra Libonati is the founder and director of two companies : Cali Srl, producing fashion accessories, and Artes Gioelli, which designs and produces silver, gold and gem pieces.
The life path of this former suburban boy is close to unbelievable. Born of a good family in Naples and immediately thrown to the peak of haute couture, first as a charming model and then as a couturier. In the early eighties, Alessio interrupts his medical studies and enrols in a cutting and sewing course in a Parisian high-fashion house.
Alessio Visone, a great visionary of Neapolitan fashion, defines himself with an elegant understatement as a “tailor-artist”. Among his many friends/clients, Fiona Swarowski (owner of Swarowski) is a long-established muse of his.
An other main woman ion his artistic life was Antonella Di Pietro, former creative director of Karl Lagerfeld, and now of Tommy Hilfiger.
Visone has been present on the fashion scene for thirty-two years. For the thirtieth anniversary of his career, a fashion show was held in his honour on the steps of the Chiaia district in Naples.
This year, we exhibit his design- armed warriors and generals on horseback, printed on dresses and bracelets, which form unique wearable art pieces.
The Neapolitan artist who has exhibited his works all over the world and the fashion designer who has dressed international celebrities, has approached art in different ways: pictorial and sartorial, and brought a true definition and prestige to the label “Made in Naples”.
