With fashion in her blood, Alice Etro entered the fashion business as a designer very young, at the age of 25. She was born in Milan on 15th August 1987, her mother, Monica Bottigelli of the Miani family, and her father, Kean Etro of the Maison family, carrying the same name. Growing up in the “City of Fashion”, Alice graduated from the German school and then successfully completed athree-year course of Fashion Design at Istituto Marangoni, nurturing family talents.
Her creations – the collection designed for her final examination – showed on the catwalks of Milan and Paris. On graduating from Marangoni, she started working at Larusmiani, a family-run business where her uncle Guglielmo Miani is CEO. Alice began as Liborio Capizzi’s assistant and then, after having co-operated with many young creative designers, she debuted with her first collection, creating FW2013/14 Larusmani’s Women’s Collection.
