Pilar Macchione studied at Polimoda Ent-Art in Italy, University of the Arts London, England and UCLA . Pilar has worked with British designers such as Giles Deacon, Zandra Rhodes, Pauric Sweeney and British Fashion Magazine, POP. Her body of work has won several accolades in Italy, London, Russia and China. Recently, Pilar’s Spring/Summer Noir Collection debuted in New York Couture Fashion Week, September 2011. The Noir collection can be viewed in Collezioni Pimavera/ Estate 2012. Being exposed to art, history, sculpture and theater, her work has developed an elegant but artistic edge. The foundation of Pilar’s work stems from a narrative; she creates a story using influences of sculpture and couture in her eveningwear.
