A brilliant Italian designer, Alessandro Dell'Acqua creates clothes for women who love to be feminine. Famous for his pretty, shimmery dresses and using materials such as chiffon, lace, and tulle, he once said that he wants every woman to be noticed.
Born in Naples in 1962, Dell'Acqua studied at the Art Institute of Naples and graduated in 1982, specializing in graphic design. His career began the same year when he first worked for the Marzotti Group. He has also worked in a knitwear mill - his fellow employees at the mill now work for him. One of his colleagues when he worked with Genny was the famous designer, Versace. Dell'Acqua also became the leading designer for the famous knitwear company, Pietro Pianforini.
His debut collection at the Milan Moda Donna in 1996 received rave reviews. Since then, his career has gone on to stellar heights. He has won the Oscar Della Moda twice in Italy. Dell'Acqua's inspirations include the great Italian actresses, Anna Magnani, Sofia Loren, and Monica Vitti.
