When Anna Dello Russo and Beyonce are on to a new label, you know you need to sit up and listen, right? Right. Well, at the moment these two fashion-savvy ladies, along with J-Lo, Kylie, Britney and Madonna, are VERY much into one up and coming Sicilian designer, Fausto Puglisi. In fact, Madge was so enamored with his black fur-trimmed coat that it became a bit like her second skin.
Born in Sicily, Puglisi trained in New York and LA, and specializes in creating luxurious, one-of-a-kind pieces, using metallic and 3D crystal effect applications alongside traditional fabrics like jersey, crepe and silk. He was involved in Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s young designer’s project, which gave him a space in the uber-cool concept store Via Spiga 2, and with the likes of ADR singing his praises, the future looks pretty rosy for Fausto. You heard it here first kids!
