America is going through an unprecedented moment in its recent history and we want to empower everyone - without bias towards age, race, sex, skin color, orientation, religion or lifestyle - to take pride the impact each one brings to our country.
AMERICA IS NOT THE SAME WITHOUT ME is a fashion movement that embraces uniqueness, diversity and inclusion, promotes personal and collective pride, and empowers each individual to make a difference.
Whether first-generation or fourth, America represents hope and equal opportunity for all. Our capsule collection of t-shirts and caps for everyone - from newborn to men, women, kids and even pets - is a declaration of uniqueness, pride, freedom and inclusion.
You, the culmination of your ideals, your origins, your personality and your dreams matter, because individual action translates into collective power!
America Is Not The Same Without ME, without YOU and without US, because we are all part of the story!
"Being born in the US opened a world of opportunities for me. Growing up in Latin America influenced my heart and sensibility. Becoming a designer and living in Europe defined my style"
Born in the US to exciled parents, a Cuban mother and a Nicaraguan father and based in Milano, Rosa Clandestino is an unconventional woman repeatedly appointed by VOGUE Italia as one of the next big in the fashion industry. In fact, when it comes to creating, whether a runway collection or a capsule of t-shirts, Rosa Clandestino never compromises the couture-tailoring of her pieces.
"I'm a detail maniac" she exclaims!
In the peak of her career the designer decided to reconnect with the real essence of life. "Why not be a protagonist for good and promote making a difference?" she wondered... and so the Fashion Movement 'Is Not The Same Without Me' was born.
