“If there is any routine in my daily life, then it is the constant drive to search for new inspiration and ideas.”
Departing on his professional journey, Itamar Zechoval left his home country Israel at the age of 21 to study fashion design in Milan where he lived and worked for over ten years. Fashion became the stage for his ideas, where he finally could combine his extraordinary talent with his passion. Itamar’s theatrical, dramatic and yet ironic creative approach was made manifest in numerous works varying from costumes and conceptual editorials to prêt-a-porter collections and image items.
With Dandy of the Grotesque he fuses the manifold experiences that he gained in his career as designer, art director and personal creator for performing artists, like Marilyn Manson. With his made-to-measure men’s garments label he creates a dialogue between the initial design inspiration and the character who is wearing his garments and vice versa, from costumes and conceptual editorials to prêt-a-porter collections and image items.
