WHO IS LORENZO SEGHEZZI?

Lorenzo was born in Milan in 1997 in a very open minded family that always motivated him to pursue his passion for the arts. Drawing, painting and playing with every kind of materials has always been his greatest passions since he was a little boy. Making dresses with towels and curtains for his sister and himself was also a big passion of him as for many other little boys that would turn out to be gay fashion designers!
Of course, being so queer at such a young age hasn’t been easy, but still, Lorenzo managed to come out to his family at 13. His passion for fine arts became stronger and stronger as he attended the Liceo Artistico DI Brera where he also discovered his passion for fashion and tailoring.
That led him to sign up to a BA in fashion design at NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan.
In 2019 Lorenzo was selected as one of the ten best Italian fashion design students by Camera Nazionale Della Moda Italiana and designed an outfit sponsored by YKK (a Japanese fastening company) at the Fashion Graduate event. Right after he was selected as one of the best NABA students and presented his fw2019 collection at the “So Young, So Old” event.
He was selected, again, as one of the best Italian young fashion designers and presented his ss2020 collection at the Milano Moda Graduate event and in late 2019 he graduated with best grades cum laude with his thesis about the queer revolution that exploded in the 80s and 90s in Italy and his “Queer Revolution ss2020” collection.
In early 2020 he showcased “Queer Revolution” ss2020 at Alta Roma, Rome’s high fashion week.
Unfortunately, less than a month later the COVID-19 pandemic spread all around the world ,making the approach to the business world very difficult for Lorenzo. Still, he managed to design and sew his ss2021 collection, “Queer Asmarina”, that focuses on the bond between the East African culture and the LGBTQ+ community in Milan. In October Lorenzo, for the first time, organized his own fashion show all by himself and presented “Queer Asmarina” to the public at the Gender Project event.
