Michael Manguino's Profile

About

I am Michael Manguino. designer. artist.

I always dare myself to be different. I strive to be my own trend setter. It’s never about the designer label, or the price, but how you rock the clothes you’re wearing.

I started designing because I wanted there to be more than just the fashion that we see. Soon after I realized that anyone can start a trend. Anyone can be fashionable; and anyone who has the confidence and be bold enough to go outside in what they want to wear is my hero! They ARE the fashionista’s we talk about. That is why my biggest fashion influences are those who break the rules of fashion; and those influences change from time to time. Avant Garde designers like Alexander McQueen and Dolce and Gabbana.

“I’ve always liked to explore the sinister child of childhood as well as the fun. We show children clowns as if they’re funny, They’re not. “
~ Alexander McQueen

People who inspire me the most are actually music artists. I think fashion and music amalgamates itself together in a way where you can’t really have one without the other. People visualize the artist and personifies them through their fashion.

“Fashion infuses with the music, and music infuses with the fashion...”
~ Lady GaGa

My philosophy is that there is nothing unaffordable in fashion. Anyone can be fashionable on a dime. From Thrift Stores to a simple plain white tee, remember that styles and fads always find their way back into our saturated pop culture. Fashion is cyclical. The most important thing is that fashion should make you feel good inside. Clothes are there to make you feel good. Fashion should evoke an emotion. It should make you stop and stare; and good fashion sticks around.

Fashion, like anything else, starts with confidence. The most important thing you have to wear on top of the clothes you’re wearing, is your attitude. Attitude is everything.
