Head of Design at Ermenegildo Zegna Couture, Stefano Pilati has stepped down from his role at the fashion house. He joined the Italian fashion label in 2013 and supervised its women’s brand Agnona as Creative Director until this past July.
“I have given much consideration to this decision and after thoughtful conversations with Gildo Zegna, we have reached the conclusion that the mission he entrusted me with had been fulfilled. I now wish to focus on other projects that I had put aside in order to achieve our common goals with Zegna Couture,” Pilati said. He previously served as Creative Director at Yves Saint Laurent from 2004 to 2012.
