Fashion designer, Orazio Stasi began his career in fashion in 1982, after studying at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, working as a freelance textile designer. He became Artistic Director of Mantero, at the time one of the two largest textile companies in the world and therefore a privileged observation point on the evolution of taste and style. In 1995, he began a professional association with Tom Ford for Gucci. Subsequently, he worked with Emilio Pucci in Florence and Calvin Klein in New York. From 2006 to 2009 he was textile and accessories designer for Brioni, then again for Calvin Klein and Valentino. Recent collaborations include Bulgari and Ginori 1735.
His fabric designs have become part of the fashion history of the last thirty years.
