This is a tangible ‘thank you’ to the city that welcomed him.

So I decided to make available in my city the fruits of my labor, not only my clothing creations, but also the sense of the subject and experience. I thought it might be interesting especially for the many young people who come to the world of fashion and design and that this heritage will find inspiration and ideas to create new ideas and businesses of the future.
