Born to exceed luxury. Haute-porter or prêt-à-couture?
Fausto Puglisi dreams to possess an atelier but has an industrial vision of it: lots of Italian labs creating state-of-the-art garments to be delivered to his clients in elegant hat boxes bearing their names.
The Sicilian-born designer who went to America aged 18, gets discovered by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana with their “Young Designers” project. Personally chosen to be showcased in their exclusive multi-brand store Spiga 2 in Milan, Puglisi is exhibited alongside the newest names in fashion in an atmoshphere of shared culture and innovative aesthetic ideas.
With his profile on the rise also thanks to personalities such as pop star Madonna and Vogue Japan’s editor-in-chief Anna Dello Russo, Puglisi chooses Amber Le Bon – the daughter of lead singer from the 80s cult band Duran Duran, Simon Le Bon – as his muse for the F/W 2012 campaign, and presents his first S/S 2013 collection in the hall of the prestigious historic Palazzo Serbelloni situated in the heart of Milan.
Entirely produced in Italy by specialized artisans, his creations are born to exceed absolute luxury. They are made for women with a party attitude who represent strength and glamour today; contemporary princesses and rockstars who also seek casual but well-constructed business attire.
Puglisi loves visual culture and mixes both high and popular culture, turning his brand into a world of inspirations: Sicily, Italian neorealist films, the American star system, Roman gladiators, modern architecture and the Mediterranean Baroque. As of 2012, Puglisi has also been nominated creative director at the famous Italian fashion brand Emanuel Ungaro. Fausto Puglisi can be summarized as: the one who will no longer show 2D items of clothing like everyone else, but who will homage fashion with a new 3D perspective.
