Nicola Brognano was born in 1990 in Calabria. He studied Fashion Design at Marangoni Institute in Milan. After graduation, he worked for Giambattista Valli on the ‘pret-a-porter’ and haute couture lines. Then for Dolce and Gabbana ‘alta moda’. In June 2016 he won the Vogue Italia and AltaRoma competition ‘Who Is On Next’.
He launched his brand ‘Brognano’ in the summer of 2015. The philosophy of the brand is very feminine, romantic and eclectic. There is an obsession with men’s daywear being reinterpreted through feminine details and fabrics. He loves the contrast between two opposite worlds like menswear and hyper-femininity and men’s daywear and streetwear.
