The Italian designer Angelo Figus graduates from the fashion department at the Antwerp Academy in 1999. A few months later he shows his graduation collection, a men’s collection, during the Haute Couture week in Paris. In 2000 he launches a women’s collection which he shows in Paris. Angelo Figus’s work is conceptual and dreamy. Typical are the ingenious drapes, the unusual shapes and volumes. In 2003 he is responsible for the GenovanversaeviceversA exhibition at the MoMu, as part of Europalia Italy.
