Raffaele Ascione is a London-based fashion designer. He began his fashion career in Ireland back in 2003 where he completed a two-year course at LSC, Limerick. He went on to complete his BA at UCA, Rochester in 2008. Upon graduation, Raffaele was head-hunted by Max Mara and spent a year in Milan designing across various different lines for the fashion house. Raffaele has also worked with Gareth Pugh and completed recent commissions for Lady Gaga, Jessie J, POP Magazine and The Uniform Project
Raffaele has recently completed his MA at Central Saint Martins in Womenswear, showcasing his collection at London Fashion Week, A/W 2011. This collection has been shot by numerous leading industry periodicals, such as Vogue Turkey, Self Service, BStore Magazine and PIG.
In February 2012 he presented his first Solo Show at London fashion week, which received positive and successful results.
The new Project is about his completion of 2nd Solo Collection. He is focusing on bringing the new Collection to the next level. All funds will be spent on professional production, a new and more established branding of label and securing himself a spot at the Paris Showroom to gain stockists. Another investment plan is to expand his studio with more specified equipment to offer a wider aspect of products, and gain more diversity for his label.
