Born in Lodi in 1982, after art and design studies, Armando attended DAMS in Bologna. A strong creative drive and the first professional experiences led him quickly into the world of fashion and, thanks to this passion, in 2003 he began attending Istituto Marangoni Milano • The School of Fashion.
The time spent in Milano allowed him to grow his knowledge focusing on topics that later became the core of his artistic research: the physical and inner journey to reach the unconscious. After graduating from the Marangoni Institute, he began cooperating with several brands as a stylist consultant; this role led him to move to Paris, where he has been living and working since 2008.
Armando Costa is currently cooperating with Istituto Marangoni as a tutor at the Paris School of Fashion, an experience that is offering him a valuable opportunity to dialogue with the new generations of talents and to deepen his knowledge of new fashion trends.
