Fausto Puglisi and The Webster celebrated the launch of their capsule collection with rooftop cocktails for Miami’s elite on Wednesday, March 27 during WMC. The event began at sundown with music by DJ Audiojack, while guests sipped on speciality cocktails by Volcán de mi Tierra tequila and Glory Vodka. The event not only marked the launch of the Fausto Puglisi x The Webster Capsule Collection of 9 pieces inspired by palm tree prints and a preview to Fausto’s latest SS19 collection, but also a celebration of Puglisi’s idea of humanity and inclusivity.
To Puglisi, Miami exudes the freedom for self expression and enables people of different backgrounds and beliefs to come together to create one vision. Featuring friends of the brand including Sylvia Mantella, Nat Kelley and more shot in the capsule pieces, Puglisi will debut a social media diary shot in Miami that brings his interpretation of humanity and inclusivity to life.

ABOUT FAUSTO PUGLISI
Fausto Puglisi’s confident, energetic style is a brash shake up of richly-researched cultural influences sewn up in impeccably crafted packages. With a modern attitude and frisson of sexiness, this original fashion combination has had combustive results, quickly drawing the attention of international editors and buyers and catapulting Puglisi into the spotlight as one of the industry’s brightest fashion talents.
Puglisi’s work is a study in bold contrasts and reflects both his Italian origins as well as his fascination with all facets of American culture. Born in Messina, Sicily to two school teachers, Puglisi was soon entranced by the twin fashion sources in his small hometown: the traditional tailors who carefully made his grandfather’s’ suits by hand and the local boutiques, brimming with stars from the Italian 1980s ready-to-wear scene, where he spent most of his teenage afternoons. Seeking new horizons, Puglisi moved to America in 1999.
He informally began his career designing a small, self-assured collection that Messina’s local tailors produced for him. He lived in New York, Texas, and eventually landed in Los Angeles where his early designs were picked up by the influential boutique Maxfield. Simultaneously, his work was spotted by renowned stylists Arianne Phillips and Patti Wilson, and the designer began to forge important ties with some of entertainment’s most creative forces.
