One Love Unified founder Andrea Boccaletti’s connection to the world of fashion began after college, when he was introduced to modeling by a friend, and began a long career as one of the most recognized models of his time. The face of campaigns for brands like Gucci, Valentino, Armani and Dior, he had an inside look at the most cutting edge fashion in Milan, Paris and New York.
After 10 years in the industry, Boccaletti’s interests turned social when he was inspired to take action as an activist against the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. With countries from all over the world uniting to keep the peace, he wanted to create a fashion piece that represented not just peace but love for humanity and community. Out of his background in fashion, and passion for activism and environmental preservation, One Love Unified was born.
Boccaletti lives in Venice, California, where he is an active member of the community supporting environmental organizations like the Natural Resources Defense Council and the World Wildlife Fund, to inspire consciousness locally and across the globe.
