Pucci, Emilio

Emilio Pucci was born in 1914 of one of Florence's oldest noble families, and would live and work in the Pucci Palace in Florence for much of his life. He never studied fashion, rather his first introduction into fashion came with the design of his college ski team's uniform. Later, he designed a ski suit for a friend who was photographed and lead him to mainstream success. Initially he used his knowledge of stretch fabrics to produce a swimwear line in 1949, but soon moved onto other items such as brightly colored, boldly patterned silk scarves, then his signature print dresses came to be.
