Hmm, working with Duquette is pretty impressive, but this guy is only 30? Yikes, he looks really rough.
Santino graduated from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. While still in school, Santino began assisting acclaimed artist/designer Tony Duquette. This experience was one of the biggest turning points in Santino’s life. The knowledge he learned from Duquette was invaluable. Working behind the scenes at many Los Angeles fashion companies, Santino became indispensable to other designers. He continues honing his craft to prepare for the day when he establishes his own label.
