Antonio Marras was born in Alghero, on Sardinia. The island has always deeply influenced his aesthetic.
In 1987 a fashion house in Rome asked Antonio to design a prêt-à-porter collection. Their invitation was due to his dual baggage of skills: cultural – Marras has always involved himself in every form of artistic/creative expression – and technical. The latter is based on his know-how of materials and forms which he developed within his family’s business of a number of shops they owned in Alghero.
