An Italian in Paris

  • • Stefano lives in Paris but loves spending time in his family home on Lake Como
  • • He did an internship with the creator Azzedine Alaïa
  • • He has created collections for some of the most famous fashion houses

Milan has always been too small for Stefano Poletti. After receiving his diploma as a designer from the Marangoni Institute, he moved to Paris in 1983. As a student at Studio Berçot, his first contact with Haute Couture was through an internship with his “dreams creator” Azzedine Alaïa. After being the assistant of Elisabeth de Senneville, he began his collaboration with Thierry Mugler. He launched his personal line of jewellery and expanded his collaboration with Haute Couture houses such as Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Lacroix. In 2000, Stefano Poletti moved his studio to rue de la Fontaine au Roi. In his workshop, an oasis of peace in an old Parisian alley, he expresses his creativity. He has created limited edition collections of jewellery for Lalique, Baccarat, Swarovski, Hermès and Jean Paul Gaultier – to name a few.
