The Emilio Pucci brand is well-known for its collection featuring bold colors and geometric prints. Emilio Pucci first leap into the fashion occurred after WWII when he designed outfits for a skiing team. A few years later, his designs came to wider attention in 1947, when a local magazine asked Pucci to design skiwear for a story on European Winter Fashion. Pucci's sleek designs caused a sensation, and he received several offers from American manufacturers to produce them. His fashion designs have been worn by celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Jackie Kennedy, and Madonna. Emilio's designs have been displayed on handbags, cosmetic cases, dresses, and many other types of apparel.
