After a delayed flight and lost luggage with all of his samples, Gianpaolo “Gian” Altomari finally made it to Capsule Show New York last week. With just two hours of sleep, the Creative Director for THOROCRAFT was up and ready to peddle his footwear once again, not that he needed to since the designs sold themselves for the most part. Formerly a marketing manager at TSUBO, the Los Angeles-based Altomari is also well known for his dabbles in all aspects of fashion. The best example was his outfit, completely self made from measurement, cut, and sewn. A designer through and through, Altomari wouldn’t have it any other way.
