Biography

Antonio Ciutto has been a designer of womenswear since 2000 under the Antonio Ciutto and 6-7/8 labels. Ciutto sees pattern making as the architecture of the body, and his production methods are pioneering in their use of digital print technology and integration of complex pattern engineering with digital media. Ciutto originally studied architecture before completing an MA in fashion with womenswear at Central Saint Martins. In 2006 Ciutto undertook a position as joint Victoria & Albert Museum/London College of Fashion artist-in-residence, where he conducted intensive research into the garment archives. Following this residency, Ciutto jointly set up 6-7/8, a collaborative label with British artist David Wojtowycz. This fashion label was runner-up for the Fashion Fringe Award.

‪‪Ciutto has presented catwalk shows during London Fashion Week from 2000–07 and taken part in exhibitions in Paris, Milan, Berlin and Tokyo. His work has been available through high-end stores in the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Denmark, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Dubai and Kuwait, appealing to a discerning clientele, consumers of limited edition pieces and celebrities including Bjork.

His work has been featured in a wide range of international magazines, newspapers and publications, and been published in Fashion Designers’ Sketchbooks, 100 New Designers and Fashion Illustration by Fashion Designers. He has taught internationally at numerous fashion schools, including UdK, Kunsthochschule Weißensee, HTW and AMD in Berlin, Hochschule Trier, the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, as well as several UK fashion schools.
