You Need To Know Designer- Stefano Pilati.

Stefano Pilati, born in Milan in 1965, saw his hometown grow into a fashion hotspot in the 1980s. He gave up his course to qualify as a land surveyor, joined Nino Cerruti as an intern, and emerged without a doubt in his mind that his future lay in the industry he saw thriving. He thus decided to embrace Milan’s fashion scene and set out to learn everything there was to know about ready-to-wear apparel materials and production. A velvet manufacturer offered him his first job. A few months later, he was designing that company’s entire collection, and presenting it to Europe’s leading ready-to-wear names. Giorgio Armani hired Pilati as an assistant in its men’s ready-to-wear department in 1993, and Prada asked him to run its fabric research and development in 1995. In 1998, he was promoted to assistant designer at Miu Miu,working on men’s and women’s ready-to-wear clothing and reporting directly to Miuccia Prada. In 2000 he joined Yves Saint Laurent to run its ready-to-wear clothing design. He took over in 2002.
