Fabio Gesualdo

Fabio Gesualdo is an Italian born online blogger with an innate disposition for creativity and aesthetics. Fabio started his creative career by studying Art History in Milan and has progressed in the fashion world by creating a blog and an Instagram account where he posts daily outfits. 

With the growth of Instagram, his work on this platform soon became more and more like a full time-job. He now collaborates with well-known international brands including Just Cavalli, Swatch and ASOS as Content Creator. On top of this he works as a freelance stylist.

Fabio’s passion for fashion began in his late teens when he bought his own pair of classic Gucci sneakers. Since then, his interest in this field has blossomed. Menswear fashion blogs such as Cup of Couple and Katelovesme acted as inspiration for Fabio to discover his personal style which he has cultivated and developed on an online platform. 

It has taken many years of experience for Fabio to gather the necessary gave him confidence to create his own web space: The Black-Haired Boy

Not having a professional camera to take his OOTD shots did not hold him back. With the help of one of his dearest friends he commenced his long-waited journey into the blogging world.

Fabio states that he is unlikely to follow style icons. Most of his inspiration comes directly from runway trends and different forms of art which enables him to give an ‘edge’ to his looks and shots.

Instead of buying little and often, Fabio focuses on purchasing statement pieces that can withstand the test of time, so he can incorporate the pieces over many years. His style choice revolves around a blend of minimal, classic and street apparel. 

“Be yourself and don’t follow trends just because it’s cool”.

Wise words yet frustrating, for a society who constantly strives for social acceptance, 

am I right?
