I want to make you travel between fairy tales, dreams and fantasies; amaze you every time immersing you in new and unexpected worlds. In colors and shapes there are continuous references to nature, art, travel, exotic cultures and everything that fascinates me.
My mother was the first teacher of sustainability who passed on to me the love for the environment and animals and who also poured into the sustainable choices of my brand.
I love mixing styles and creating unusual associations between particular colors and fabrics to give my creations always freshness and uniqueness. All seasoned with a hint of irony to never take yourself too seriously and give lightness to life.
Annalisa Queen was also born as a cry of strength for all those people and those women who like me, alone, had to climb not pebbles but mountains, who had to reinvent themselves and be reborn from their ashes, not surprisingly as logo I drew a phoenix, my motto is "Be the hero of your life", so among the messages I want to convey there are also equality and inclusivity, in support of which I also carry out initiatives and projects.
Setting hearts on fire
Annalisa was born in Rome in 1987 and began designing clothes from the age of 10, most likely fascinated by the skill of her grandmother who was an extraordinary seamstress. What for her was a game soon becomes a passion that will push her, after scientific high school diploma, to undertake studies in the field of fashion. She graduated in 2012 in Fashion and Costume Sciences at La Sapienza in Rome. During a seminar she met Roberto Capucci, a couturier she loved very much and a constant source of inspiration.
In the meantime he also cultivates a passion for make-up by graduating as a make-up artist and working on photographic sets, he learns how to take care of a 360° image.
In 2013 she enrolled at the Maiani Academy where she took her first steps in pattern making and tailoring, also improving her drawing skills thanks to her beloved design teacher Raffaella and thus obtaining her diploma in 2016 with honors. Immediately after the academy she meets Enza, an exceptional and very refined seamstress, from whom she takes private lessons that make her increasingly prepared and self-confident.
In 2018 she thus founded the Annalisa Queen brand and paraded her first collection in Montecarlo fashion week.
In 2019 she presented the Spring Summer 2021 collection at the Kiev craft fair, opening up to the international market and new frontiers.
In 2020, in the midst of the global pandemic, she opened her first Boutique in Rome in Via Panisperna.
In January 2021, she launched her first charity initiative in collaboration with the "Salvamamme" Association.
In March 2021 Annalisa launched the "Re-Dream Box" creative recycling project for children together with her mother Bianca.
In October 2023 presents the new collection at the first temporary store in Milan.
"My grandmother was an extraordinary seamstress and made everything, even carpets. When I was little I loved to spend the afternoons watching her work wool or decorate some accessories. Unfortunately she could not teach me everything I know today because when I started this work she already he was no longer there but I am convinced that he left inside me the inestimable value of his ability and the richness of his works.
His work drawers were filled with buttons, decorations and many things he left me as a gift. Even today I draw from those drawers as a treasure trove of immense riches where I can always find something unique for my creations, making them even more sought after." Annalisa
"My grandmother knew how to make wool garments with extraordinary skill, in fact she was also chosen to pose as a model in two issues (1948 and 1949) of a magazine called "Lavori di lana"."
