 Pitti Vintage

Founded in Florence Italy in 2005 by

 Graciela Avendano and Luigi Capeto


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 architecture.


Together Luigi and Graciela looked for significant location to launch Pitti Vintage,           

first at Oltrarno (Florence's "left bank") years later they moved 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 it sells ONLY ONLINE

“We hope that you will visit often and grow with us. ” 

 Thanks Graciela & Luigi !
