Leitmotiv is an artistic project born of the creativity of Juan Caro from Bogotá and Fabio Sasso from Milan, who met while studying arts in Bologna in 2006. Just two years later, they were admitted to the National Chamber for Italian Fashion’s ‘Fashion Incubator’ project. After three months, they hit the catwalk in Milan and Tokyo which was their debut show for 2009 Spring/Summer collection. Then, after attending Touch! and Pitti Immagine Rooms, they were also invited to present at the prestigious Pitti W_Woman Precollection and were selected in 2010 as finalists of “Who’s On Next?”, a competition organized by Vogue Italia Editor in Chief, Franca Sozzani.

Their mission is to create something always original and up to date; their style is made of references to the world of art and fashion, to the tailor skills and craftsmanship. The idea is to design artistic clothing combining art and fashion, future and past, tailor skills and ‘haute couture’, masculinity and femininity.
