Alessandro Michele & Gus Van Sant

Italy, USA

* Alessandro Michele is an Italian fashion designer. In January 2015, he was appointed creative director of Gucci, the Italian fashion luxury house where he had been working since 2002. Known for his maximalist designs, he is responsible for all of Gucci's collections and global brand image.

** Gus Van Sant (Louisville, Kentucky, USA, 1952) is a film director, screenwriter, painter, photographer, musician and author. Influenced by painting and experimental cinema, he started shooting in 1981 and worked in an advertising agency until producing his first feature film, Mala Noche, in 1985. With recurring themes such as homosexuality and subcultures, his work is considered essential for North American independent cinema of the last quarter of the century.
