2018 Z Best Dressed List Maker: Anna Clio Galea
“I an artist and aspiring fashion designer studying fashion at Parsons School of Design. I have a small lingerie line.” ~ Anna Clio Galea
Chanel! I admire the timeless beauty and elegance, I am incredibly inspired by the story of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel and how she started her brand.
The place of fashion in Anna Clio’s life:
Fashion makes up most of my every day life, I feel I live and breathe fashion as it is my preferred medium of art a well as something I appreciate and love. I study fashion design, have a lingerie line, and intern at Christian Cowan, so fashion takes up most of my time every single day.
My signature piece would probably be my Chanel cuff, I wear it every single day and never take it off, it has become a staple of my style sense. Chanel is a very personal brand to me as I studied design under them in Paris this summer as a part of a Masterclasss, and it is overall the brand I respect and am most inspired by. My cuff was a birthday gift from my mother and I keep it with me every day.
We asked Anna Clio, “ if you could trade your entire closet with any woman in the world, who would it be?”
I’d probably go with Kaia Gerber.
“And would you actually do it?”
And, speaking of grabbing someone’s style from their closet, many of the Trench members (aka Trenchies) state that one of the things they like most about being part of the Never Ending Closet community is being fashionable while being very environmentally conscious and sustainable.
Anna Clio told us about the meaning of fashion sustainability to her.
Sustainability is something extremely important to me as an aspiring designer. I have to think not only about the integrity and beauty of my designs but their context in the world. Every day when I am in the studio sewing, draping, or creating, I try to keep sustainability in mind through everything I do. I also do not at all support fast fashion, so I try to buy quality over quantity, even if it means less items, but items that are more valuable and will last longer, as opposed to buying into cheaper fast fashion brands that are promoting the destruction of our environment and the mistreatment of the workers who construct the garments all over the world.
