About Fausto Puglisi:
Fausto Puglisi's debut collection ignited instant excitement in October 2013 with its full-throttle use of optical patterns, outrageous color, and baroque opulence. The Sicilian-born Fausto Puglisi builds his over-the-top aesthetic through tension and juxtaposition, playing classical history and imagery off unabashed sensuality, maximalist sensibilities against skilled tailoring. Puglisi's background as a costume designer for the biggest names in music is evident in his signature use of embroidery, Greco gladiator details, and visual silhouettes. Clingy dresses, full-cut skirts, and leather skinny pants all make an indelible impression.
