Torrita di Siena, 21st March 2022 – We are honored to announce that after the confirmation with the inclusion, only a few months ago by Statista and Il Sole 24 Ore, among the Leaders of Growth 2022, AP Italian Luxury has achieved a further recognition confirming its inclusion for the second time in the prestigious FT 1000 ranking, curated by the Financial Times in collaboration with Statista.
AP Italian Luxury is growing and this year it is one of the 1000 innovative companies with the highest growth rate in Europe, ranked by the Financial Times. The confirmation comes with the publication of the international ranking “FT 1000 – Europes Fastes Growing Companies“: the ranking of the 1000 European companies that recorded the highest percentage growth in revenues between 2017 and 2020.
The award comes for the second year in a row and sees the company led by Alessandra Perani and Stefano Brasini ranked 307 placed, among the top 5 companies in the fashion industry, with a growth of 513.5% in the period considered (2017-2020) and a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 83.1%.

“The reconfirmation of AP Italian Luxury in the ranking of the Financial Times allows us to highlight the long-term development of our company – comments Stefano Brasini, CFO and founder – The growth of our company is the result of constant investments in resources and skills, brought to accomplishments by a unique attitude in dedicating ourselves to our customers that we serve, taking care of every aspect of the services that we offer. This recognition is seen as a push to do even more and not as a definitive goal”.
For AP all this translates into a greater momentum. This important achievement shows that, even in times of crisis such as the one faced in the last two years, it is fundamental to continue to focus on entrepreneurial growth and Made in Italy companies. The recipe for overcoming the crisis is very simple: to continue to innovate, to be resilient and to adapt to the new market.
Alessandra Perani, CEO and founder of AP Italian Luxury, says “The result obtained is the result of an important team work and the continuous search for innovation that distinguishes us. Always ready to get involved, to be curious, to learn new things to make the impossible possible. This’s what we do every day and our commitment has once again paid off: for the second time in a row we have been recognized as one of the 1000 fastest growing companies in Europe”.
Being for the second consecutive year in the FT1000 ranking is a great satisfaction: for AP is an important recognition of the commitment and the great work done in recent years that has allowed to establish the company as one of the most innovative and accredited in the fashion trade.
An extraordinary recognition, as extraordinary is the story that brought us here.
