Fausto Puglisi was born in Messina, Sicily. Inspired by the traditional tailors of his home town and the star of the 80s Italian ready-to-wear scene, he moved to America and pursued a career in fashion. Back home in Italy, his label took flight when in 2010, Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana invited the designer to be part of their retail project Spiga 2. His clothing sold out within days and he was invited to show at Milan Fashion Week. Inspired by romance, classicism and opulence, his range of swimwear includes chic onepiece swimsuits, bikinis and coverups.
