About the Designer:
Pucci got his start to fame through a publicity stunt which involved ski outfits! While studying at Reed University in Oregon under a skiing scholarship, Pucci began designing uniforms for the college ski team. With experience in designing ski wear, Pucci later designed his own ski outfit and followed on to create a ski suit for a female friend…
This outfit was photographed and made its way into Harper’s Bazaar. Through the publicity gained, Pucci was asked to design for the magazine who was releasing an article of European winter fashion in 1948.
Pucci’s use of stretch fabrics and his sleek designs caused immediate success for him with several American manufacturers offering to produce his designs. Declining, Pucci instead left the air force and set up his own couture fashion house in his family home, a Renaissance-era Palazzo in the middle of Florence.
Initially producing a swimwear line in 1949, Pucci decided to started to move into other products with brightly coloured, boldly patterned designs. Under the influence of Stanley Marcus from Neiman Marcus, Pucci produced blouses and silk dresses with his bold patterns on and eventually opened his first boutique in 1950.
His designs were worn by fashion icons including Sophia Loren, Jackie Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe who was buried in one of his dresses.
