Emerging Designers

Emerging Designers: Sponsoring emerging designers is part of our multicultural mission here at FLY. We showcase various emerging designers throughout the year. Being that Florence is a fashion capital known for it's high quality manufacturing and textiles, we are always on the look out for up and coming, local talent. This season we are showcasing pieces from Marakita.


Our current emerging designer is Alexandra Zofcin. She is a Florence University of the Arts alumna and has known she wanted to be a fashion designer since the fourth grade. In December of 2016 she graduated from Lynn University and is now working on building her brand — The House of AmZ. This brand is influenced by her knowledge of edgy, high-end international design as well as the AmZ philosophy of having a voice through fashion. Her philosophy is showcased throughout her pieces by adding new luxurious, sophisticated twists to traditional designs and textiles.

On September 17th, FLY launched AmZ’s capsule which featured a ready to wear collection called “Femininity Is…”. The idea behind this collection is to allow women and men to embrace what femininity means to them and to allow us to strive to be whomever we want to be by breaking free of any social norms. The special capsule collection that is featured now at FLY was made in Florence using only Italian materials. All of the pieces are handmade by Alexandra herself and no two garments are exactly alike, making them extremely unique and one of a kind.
