was founded in Florence Italy in 2005
Graciela Avendano and Luigi Capeto
This is their story…
Graciela studied fashion at Janette Klein University in Mexico City, where was born and raised. In 1997 she moved to New York to further her fashion career,
took courses in designing, draping, haute couture,
wedding gowns pattern making at “Parsons The New School for Design” and at the
“Fashion Institute of Technology”.
Luigi is from the ancient city of Brindisi, in the southern Italian region of Puglia. Fascinated with architecture, both aged and modern, he moved in 1987 to Florence to study the art and science of architectural design.
Together Luigi and Graciela looked for significant location to launch Pitti Vintage, first the Oltrarno (Florence's "left bank") years later to the "Albizi's tower -house". Always stocking only the best, hand picked vintage clothing. The brand soon gathered a large following of regulars looking for that unique, individual vintage piece.
Pitti Vintage will continue to develop and improve, now selling ONLY ONLINE.
“We hope that you will visit often and grow with us. ”
Thanks Graciela & Luigi !
