I was born about 40 years ago in the South of Italy. Since I can recall, I always loved clothes. I remember watching my father getting dressed for work each day and helping him pick out just the right tie. One of my best memories is when he took me to shop for the first time at his favorite store. My mom still keeps the suit that I whore to my 18th birthday party. During my college years, I gave fashion advice to my friends, often unsolicited. My nickname then was, “Uomo Vogue”.
