Unikool.it stories. The story of Annalisa Caricato: T-shirt ironic message.
I’m Annalisa Caricato, freelance leather goods designer. I was born in Italy.
I worked for 15 years as a leather goods designer for a lot of luxury italian brand such as Dolce&Gabbana, Tod’s, Ferragamo, Valentino, Emanuel Ungaro, Bulgari.
My first collection is called ART A PORTER. It is a bags collection, but the idea is that each decoration on the bag matches with a t-shirt ironic message. It’ is a new concept of wearable art through colored and joyful accessories.
For the production I have already a good team, manufacture and product manager in Pescara supports me step by step.
All the creative steps are easy for me, creation is in my DNA, but the social part of my job I don’t really like! I don’t really like to explain the project, but I like when the project talks by itself because is so well made and well designed than it doesn’t need explication.
For me it’s important that my collection is created in Italy.
I need Buyer who buy the bags, I need fashion Blogger showing the bags all over the world and I need investor who helps me with investment because I have a lot of idea, but i need money to push them out of my mind becoming fashion product.
I have showroom in Italy, an e-commerce for South Arabia and I hope to find others partners.
Nowadays all the new talented accessories designer are my competitors.
I have a press office that follow my Instagram profile annalisa caricato_official and send articles to fashion magazine and fashion blogger.
I think that UNIKOOL is a good project if there is a good selection about project and designers.
It means to be reliable in this field and to have credibility.
