GWD

GWD is a journey of emotions.
It arises from the need for expression of style and gentlemen elegance that has accompanied me since I was a child.
GWD was born on 22nd of October  2012, in the midst of the digital revolution where communication would no longer be the same.
The idea was combined with Chris Anderson’s “Long Tail” theory: to arrive through an amplifier tool like the world wide web to so many people, that is, to reach a global niche.
GWD was therefore born mainly as a Facebook page, then evolved on all social platforms.
In 2013 the GWD site was born mainly as a repository of what we told, photographed but also as a niche e-commerce site that put on the global market unique items, enhancing their Italian spirit and giving people the opportunity to purchase them.
GWD is not a reposting nor a pure advertising site, all of our content are experiences we have lived or created.

FPO is the GWD‘s ultra niche multi-brand e-commerce website, to bring our clients a very exclusive selection of items (accessories, apparel, design objects and vintage pieces) for both Men and Women, curated by Charley and my self.

FPO strives to sell [FEW] timeless PIECES [ONLY] to last beyond the season…

In a world of standardization where the majority of people buy the same things, I thought exclusivity is what our customers were looking for;  they will not be able to find the majority of those pieces anywhere else and given the small quantity of pieces available, they can be sure they will #Be1OfTheFew!

FPO motto is #Be1OfTheFew and these are FPO core values:

Sustainability: FPO works with brands who produce their goods in a local, sustainable and green supply chain.
Quality: FPO provides top notch quality © Made in Italy products to deliver superior value to its clients.
Passion: FPO is committed in heart and mind.
Exclusivity: Our customers won’t be able to find FPO pieces anywhere else.

"Uniqueness, punctuality, precision, quality and creativity. A content creator stands out from the crowd when they have these qualities and the ability to tell authentic and exciting experiences in a simple and direct way. With GWD I have found this and much more."

Communication & Pr Manager at Boggi Milano

Luca Fiorito

"Style is not about ostentation or designation. It's about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work and the things you love, and finally you have to inspire friends, followers, and customers. This, in a nutshell, is Fabrizio's mission"

Irene Peccetti

"Fabrizio impresses with his innate sense of style, which he transmits not only by reinterpreting fashions, but also through spontaneous words and gestures that make him naturally elegant. If you are attentive observers, what immediately catches the eye is the attention to detail that he puts into each of his looks: the same attention and dedication that he puts into each of his work, to make it unique and inimitable.""

Former Italy Brand Manager at Montres Breguet

Domenico Gianfrate

"… .I met Fabrizio when he was still working for IBM, but he had already created GWD. Many times he had confided to me his passion for clothing and style in general. When he communicated to me the choice to leave his job at IBM to devote himself heart and soul to his GWD project and clothing in general, it did not take me by surprise. I was sure he would make that choice because every time we chat, his strong passion and determination was evident. I am happy to have shared some moments of his journey with Fabrizio and I am extremely pleased to have maintained a relationship of true friendship with a capable and enterprising person like him."
