Giorgio di Sant’Angelo began his career in fashion with designs for plastic jewelry in the late 1960s. Early examples were featured in Vogue magazine under editor, Diana Vreeland and earned Sant’Angelo a Coty Award in 1968. His first clothing collections rejected the strictly tailored forms of the previous decade, featured natural silhouettes achieved through wrapping, layering, and tying fabric around the body. They earned the designer his second Coty Award in 1970. In the late 80s his designs were wrapped, body conscious garments in brightly-colored silk stretch gauze. He won his second clothing award for his use of stretch fabrics from the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 1988, shortly before his death in 1989.
