Walter Albini was an Italian fashion designer who gained fame between the mid ‘60s to early ‘80s for his avantgarde and innovative approach to fashion. He was recognized internationally as one of the biggest fashion designers emerging from Italy, being widely credited for the inception of the ‘Made in Italy’ concept as well as one of the pioneers of the ready-to-wear movement that established novel couture and tailoring practices.
Although his name and brand were soon forgotten after an untimely death at the age of 42 in 1983, his unique creations and transformational impact on the fashion industry continue to inspire some of the world’s most sought-after designers and artistic talents today.
