Andrea Cammarosano (1985) is an Italian-born designer, artist and educator. A graduate of the Fashion Department / Antwerp Royal Academy, Cammarosano worked as assistant menswear designer for Walter Van Beirendonck (2008-2010), for his own eponymous label (2010-2016), and for different other brands in the fashion industry.
Alongside his design work, Cammarosano realised several artist collaborations, such as with Narcisse Tordoir and Ronald Stoops (2008-present). He was artist-in-residence at the MuseumsQuartier in Vienna (2010) and at Rijksakademie in Amsterdam (2012), where he explored the relation between body and garment through interactive body-constructions. Andrea’s artistic creations have been showcased at MoMA Ps1, New York (Stage costumes for FischerSpooner, 2011), Selfridges, London (Washed Up, curated by Judith Clark, 2010), Museo Della Triennale, Milano (Il Nuovo Vocabolario Della Moda Italiana, 2016), the Arnhem Fashion Biennale (in 2011, 2013 and 2015), Dover Street Market, London (2018).

In 2018, Cammarosano founded CLU++ER, a project for the exploration of creative methods rooted in performance, improvisation and collaboration (2018-present). When asked what he does in his life, Cammarosano has a simple answer: ‘I make things, I see people’.
