About Alfred Fiandaca

From the time Alfred Fiandaca was 9 years old, he was cutting patterns and eventually drafting patterns on his own at his father's side in East Boston. He moved to New York City when he was 17. There, he studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology and the now former Traphagen School of Design.

His career, as a third generation fashion designer, started when he moved back to East Boston and opened a shop on Maverick Street. One of his biggest breaks happened when the wife of then newly elected Massachusetts Governor, John Volpe, asked him to design a new suit and gown for the inauguration.

Alfred Fiandaca quickly moved to the most fashionable streets such as Newbury Street, Worth Avenue, and Madison Avenue. The top stores across the United States have sold his glamorous designs including Berdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Fiandaca has dressed many stylish women like Audrey Hepburn, Lady Bird Johnson, Julie Andrews, Louise Fletcher for the 1975 Academy Awards (winner best actress for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest), Gail Ryan for the 2000 Academy Awards (winner makeup Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas), Anita Baker, Nancy Reagan, Jean Kennedy, Pia Lindstrom, Pauline Boardman Pitt, Jane Dudley, Sarah Farrish, Barbara Wainscott Berger, and HRH. Princess Maria Pia de Savoie
