As the driving force behind ATELIER & REPAIRS, Maurizio has been inspired by his 30-years journey in the apparel industry to assemble a concept that weaves his personal affinity to vintage and nomadic cultures with his desire to reconcile the excess he has witnessed, and been a part of, in the apparel and textile industries.
Maurizio brings a unique background of strategically developing and executing global expansion strategies, both creatively and commercially, across brand, product, marketing and distribution for international fashion houses and companies.
OUR PRESS MENTIONS
“I want to leave behind an initiative that produces and wastes less, making this both a personal and professional endeavor,”
His [Maurizio Donadi's] answer is Atelier & Repairs – a brand concept revolving around “Reducing excess through fixing, improving, recreating and up-cycling what already exists.”
“Los Angeles/London-based Atelier & Repairs is an emerging business and disruptive force in the fashion industry, aiming to slow down the rate of production and of waste.”
"As embedded in the fashion industry as Maurizio Donadi is—he’s worked for major brands and consults for several more—he’s ambivalent about it in general, questioning what it is and why it operates the way it does. Why so much mass-produced excess? And why so serious?"
