This event has passed.

New York, NY 10001

JUDGES:

Andrea Rosso

ANDREA ROSSO
Creative Director, 55DSL

Born in 1977, Andrea is the son of Renzo Rosso, a descendant of the Diesel empire, so it comes as no surprise that he was instinctively drawn to the fashion business since an early age. He studied pattern cutting in Padova, but it was while studying English in California that he discovered a love for non-conformist sports like skate, surf and snowboarding. He went on to New York to study Textile Development and Marketing at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and ultimately, began conceiving 55DSL. Since 2001, Andrea has led as Creative Director of 55DSL, which has built the company into a successful multinational business and a cradle for free thinkers and artists from all around the world.
