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 ready-to-wear and haute couture lines before working for Dolce and Gabbana Alta Moda. In June 2016 he won the Vogue Italia and AltaRoma competition ‘Who Is On Next’.
Nicola launched his brand ‘Brognano’ in the summer of 2015. The philosophy of the brand is feminine, romantic and eclectic. The label reflects an obsession with men’s daywear being reinterpreted through feminine details and fabrics. Nicola loves the contrast between opposite worlds, exemplified in the connections between menswear and hyper-femininity; daywear and streetwear.
