One Love Unified founder Andrea Boccaletti’s connection to the world of fashion began after college, when he was introduced to modeling and began a long career as one of the most recognized models of the 90's. The face of campaigns for brands like Gucci, Valentino, Giorgio Armani, Hugo Boss and Dior, he had an inside look at the most cutting edge fashion in Milan, Paris and New York.
After 7 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 line that represented love for humanity, community and the environment. Out of his background in fashion, and passion for social and environmental causes, One Love Unified was born.
Boccaletti lives in Venice, California, where he is an active member of the community, supporting organizations like the Natural Resources Defense Council, World Wildlife Fund and Surfrider Foundation, to inspire consciousness locally and across the globe.
