About Alessandra Gallo
I believe in change and I want to be a part of it!
We can change the fashion market making it circular and more and more respectful for the Planet.
If you’ve reached Fashionable Green it’s because you also want to be a change maker.
I am Alessandra Gallo, a sustainable fashion consultant. I am here to help you implement the change you desire or to make more visible what you have created with your brand.
I founded Fashionable Green with the goal of assisting small and medium-sized brands in building a sustainability strategy before they reach the size required to hire an in-house team.
How to implement change? By acting in multiple directions:
The passion for fashion. Master’s in Product Management from the Marangoni Institute in Milan. Several years at an Italian fast fashion company as a product manager. First experience as a consultant for accessory sample outsourcing in 2000 founding Alice Studio. I take a break and think about my family. In 2007, I open The Shopping Stylist, a personal shopper agency. Ethical and Environmental Reflection.
But is it ethical for fashion to constantly push for consumption? What lies behind all this consumed merchandise? What will we leave at future generation? Pollution, exploitation of animals and people to meet induced needs. I don’t want to be part of this, but I want to help build a different story.
Combining constant market research, exploration of new and old materials, certifications, and production techniques with my understanding of product structure, Fashionable Green Consultancy Studio was born.
What I Believe In
I believe in change as a natural part of life.
I believe in resilience during times of difficulty.
I believe in goal-oriented work and in building individual daily steps to reach the set destination.
I believe in building competence because knowledge fascinates me and delving deeper is necessary for me.
I embrace complexity because it’s rich, but I can distill it into specific actions.
I believe that we can become more sustainable for this Planet, and the fashion industry must urgently change to reduce its impact.
Beyond daily actions as a citizen, I can do more. I can leverage the skills I’ve built over 20 years as a product manager in the fashion sector to contribute to this change.
Why am I passionate about strategy? Because it’s about direction, coherence, and perseverance, and these are qualities that the market always rewards.
Why am I building a team?
Walking together takes us far.
Collaborating with other professionals possessing complementary skills enables us to provide a comprehensive product service, capable of structuring a transformative path towards sustainability while maintaining coherence and continuity.
We believe that the new European regulations can nourish and strengthen change, and that diligent and constant study of the sustainable fashion market is the best guide to constructing a robust strategy.
If you want to arrive first, run alone,
if you want to go far, walk together
— African proverb
Why this is a female team?
I believe that being a woman is an advantage, built upon all the challenges we face and overcome each day. I also believe that sustainability is a complex vision based on the concept of caring for our Planet, and a woman can understand that the concept behind CARE very well.
Product and communication: this is our focus
Product and packaging, website and social media—the fundamental structure of a brand, all oriented towards sustainability. We don’t want to replace a communication agency. We don’t want to replace a communication agency.
But it is important to us that the word “sustainability” is treated with care and respect. For us, it’s a fundamental value that must be communicated starting from fabric certifications, extending to packaging choices, and reaching the website and social media communication. We will propose the best way to communicate your efforts towards sustainability.
Coherency: it’s a word we like
