24FASHION.TV: When did you first realize you wanted to pursue a career as a fashion designer?
Paolo Iacullo: Being an Italian and having been born and raised in Italy, I always had a passion for fashion. I started working in the fashion industry from my teen years and was always involved in Italian nightlife working with many celebrities.
Where do you usually find creative inspiration for your new collections?
The boutique requires a lot of traveling, so we attend many fashion shows in Milan. I found that traveling mixed with my own fashion needs and curiosity is where most of my inspiration comes from.
How is working in fashion different today than when you started out?
Fashion and style are always changing, plus people buying patterns/needs are different from one season to the next. While there are many styles and designs, my true self style is the classic Italian, Milano style with a twist of the modern man.
