Antonio Marras was born in Alghero, on Sardinia. The island has always deeply influenced his aesthetic. His fashion debut was the result of a lucky chance. In 1987 a fashion house in Rome asked him to design a prêt-à-porter collection. Their invitation was due to his dual baggage of skills: cultural – Marras has always involved himself in every form of artistic/creative expression – and technical based on his know-how of materials and forms. He debuts with his prêt-à-porter in March 1999 in Milan and in 2003 LVMH, the French luxury goods group, invites him to be the artistic director of the Kenzo fashion house till 2011. With his headquarters in Milan, Marras made a fundamental choice, both sentimental and artistic: he will never give up living where he was born, to Alghero always returning in pursuit of creativity, inspiration and material for his expressive universe.
