El primer diseñador que entiende los beneficios de una asociación con Antonio fue Gaetano Navarra, en 2007. Su intuición dió lugar a una manicura francesa muy cuidada y elaborada que hizo brillar “barricadera” de Navarra en la pasarela.

Antonio Sacripante realizó muchas colaboraciones internacionales muy importantes que le hicieron viajar alrededor del mundo (Japón, Hong-Kong, Australia, Estados Unidos, España, México, China, Malasia, Israel, Corea, Suecia, etc.), a países que inspiran día a día su mundo y su estilo de vida. Gracias a estas experiencias, el nombre de Antonio Sacripante se identifica a menudo como el pionero de la moda o gurú del arte de uñas.
