Peter Pilotto did a two-year art and fashion degree in London, worked as visual merchandiser for Vivienne Westwood for three years and graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp as the most promising student. His degree collection ... carried away by a moonlight shadow..., recognised by the Flanders Fashion Institute, has atmospherically been running through his collections till this day, creating a new textile surface that points towards the future from a time and place in the past.
His designs, poetic and energetic, avant-garde and elegant, leave space for associations while suspending the norm. They embody the free playing with identities, defy explanation and hold a magical appeal throughout the world. Shops from Paris to Osaka sell the designs of the young Austrian. In his designs for installations and objects he blurs the boundaries between artistic aesthetics and wearable fashion design.
Peter Pilotto lives and works in London.
