Forbes inserts the Neapolitan influencer and designer in his ranking of 30 European under 30s to keep an eye on in the “art and culture” sector. A great success for the creative of the Attico brand. Also because he has just turned 25 in years
Another important recognition for the excellence of Italian fashion comes from the prestigious Forbes magazine. Only a few months ago, the magazine had crowned Chiara Ferragni as number one in its world ranking of the most powerful fashion influencers.
Today, however, it touches Gilda Ambrosio: the name of the designer and it-girl made in Italy figure in fact in the European classification of 30 Under 30 to keep an eye in the category Art & Culture. Together with Ambrosio, in the same category the magazine mentions three other Italians: Lorenzo Uggeri, founder of the Kooness platform, and the chefs Davide Caranchini and Floriano Pellegrino. Another 8, then, the Italians present in the other 9 categories identified by Forbes. Twelve national prides on 300 names: an excellent result for our country.
But, for us, the queen of the 300 young and talented names identified by the American magazine is Ambrosio: founder and creative director of the super cool brand Attico together with her friend Giorgia Tordini, she adds to her personal palmarès – which includes, among other things his report among the 500 most important figures in the fashion world according to Business of Fashion – this prestigious award. Already a career of all respect behind, just 25 years, and a future that can only be radiant for her. All thanks to an innate sense of style – its unmistakable touch? The ability to mix avant-garde brands with well-dressed classics – and a curious, lively and snappy entrepreneurial mind. But also a look of a deer in front of which it is impossible to remain indifferent.
