Thomas... I am a London-based stylist and art director. I was born in Verona and as a teenager I began modelling for a daily newspaper. At the age of 19 I moved to Leeds and I continued my modelling career for a boutique clothing store called The Allotment, which sells high-end fashion from designers such as Marcelo Burlon and Damir Doma.

I soon realised that I was better suited to a career on the other side of the camera, and I began my journey as a stylist by dressing my college friends and building my portfolio. It wasn’t long before I found myself styling for magazines and working alongside some great photographers.

Styling has worked as a platform and a way to build connections and knowledge in the industry, as one day my dream would be to open a high end brand. And it’s working nicely, since when I started I’ve been doing things I’d have never even thought I was capable of; I’ve been casting for brands and people, I even ended up directing a whole fashion show of an Italian designer at London Fashion week last year, and much much more, the journey has been crazy so far and I’m really curious to see what the future is has in hand.
