There is a perfect match between the brand and the Fausto Puglisi persona. Impetuosity, authenticity, an explosive vision, obsession for details and true Italian spirit are the main features that synthesize both Italian and US aesthetic. Fausto Puglisi was born in Messina, Sicily the ancient cradle of the Magna Graecia culture and later of opulent Baroque, both representing a strong inspiration in his creativity.
When Fausto left his hometown for the United States, he was just eighteen: he first stopped in New York, then in Dallas and finally in Los Angeles where his designs, fresh out of the tailors were sourced by Maxfield and noticed by stylist like Arianne Phillips and Patti Wilson.
Hollywood and the celebrities panorama remains a constant reference for the aesthetics of the brand: he established a collaboration with artists and actresses like Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Madonna.
The brand’s commercial success starts with Dolce & Gabbana experimental concept store Spiga2 back in 2010.
In September 2013, Fausto Puglisi debuts at MilanFashionWeek with the first fashion show. Within very few years Fausto Puglisi has built an ideal wardrobe composed a multitude of iconic elements: his fashion is istantly recognizable and has found a place of honour in the luxury segment of Made in Italy.
Fausto Puglisi is currently distributed the best retailers all over the world from Bergdorf Goodman in New York to his own flagship store in Via Spiga, Milan.
