fredo is a native new yorker, born and raised. originally from bk and now a resident of harlem for 20+ years. a self proclaimed art, fashion + photography junkie since childhood. he is the proud son of hard working immigrant parents. his mother was a seamstress, hence his love for fashion and the construction of a garment. he's also, a bit of a nerd and an introvert. and once upon a time, he was an 80's club kid, a product of new york city nightlife.


"i've had the honor of assisting some of the industry's most notable fashion directors at publications such as W, VOGUE, HARPER'S BAZAAR, NUMERO and ELLE. i've been fortunate to have worked with icons of pop culture and legends of the fashion world. stuff fairytales are made of..."


so with 20+ years of experience assisting under his belt and 10+ years of working independently, he is happy to report he is still extremely passionate about fashion and has come to the conclusion, he has a natural penchant for menswear, so sorry ladies.
