Allison Vicenzi is a fashion entrepreneur building a clothing brand and ecosystem in NYC. Powered by the fact that secondhand garments are the consumer's most sustainable choice, VICENZI launched in 2017 as an independent, circular brand offering well-made investment pieces along with a buyback guarantee. The concept is to promote efficient material reuse through recommerce and closed-loop systems.
After leaving the 3D printing industry, Allison set out to start her brand with a single blazer design in two colors. In 2019, VICENZI will relaunch and introduce new pieces, services, and DIY projects for women of all ages, backgrounds, professions. Her work aims to blend design and education to help women find their true "feel-good" style, at a variety of price points, without compromising quality or personality.
Allison is the co-founder of the Sustainable Fashion Circle, NYC's leading monthly meetup series and community of caring and passionate individuals working together.
