International Designer Of The Year: Alessandro Michele


The British Fashion Council chose Gucci‘s Alessandro Michele as the winner of the International Designer of the year award. And he will be, officialy, awarded later in November.

Alessandro Michele stepped into the role of Gucci‘s creative director in Janurary 2015 and in just ten months, having presented only four collections, he achieved to win this award, which was previously won by Nicolas Ghesquière and Miuccia Prada. Michele who has first joined Gucci in 2002 and was working under Tom Ford, achieved to prove his talent, giving in such a small period the vintage aesthetic he wanted, and making Gucci no.2 brand in the global luxury goods market.

That’s how the designer who was considered by the most in the fashion industry as an unknown, will be officialy the Internation Designer of 2015.
