Amanda María Forastieri’s namesake label has been within the making for nicely over two years. However you might say the designer has been getting ready for it her entire life.

“Trend design is ancestral for me — dress-making was taught by my grandmother,” she says. “I at all times knew that vogue design was it.” 

What Forastieri wasn’t so certain of was the style trade: the velocity at which issues are produced and discarded, the continuous demand for newness, the exploitation and waste that each one creates. Even when she was a vogue design scholar at Drexel College, she was fascinated about all of this.
