Alessandro Michele does not shy away from bold fashion when it comes to dressing models for the Gucci runway. The 49-year-old has spent the last seven years as creative director at the storied Italian fashion house, helping to reinvigorate the Gucci brand.
Michele and Gucci welcomed correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi for a rare look inside its design studios.
In 2018, during a Milan fashion show, Gucci took the term “head turning” to a literal level when models walked the runway carrying wax replicas of their noggins. Michele said the genesis of the idea was inspired by the young.
