Giovanni Scutaro, an Italian designer born in Venezuela, opened his first boutique in the United States on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. Scutaro began his career at the age of 21 and has been working in the world of fashion for 30 years. After studying at Instituto Maragoni in Milan, Italy, Scutaro was asked to do the photo campaign for the then Venezuelan president, Carlos Andres Perez. This project marked the start of his successful fashion career and his designs have since become popular among Latin American celebrities such as Juan Gabriel, Ricardo Montaner, Lupita Jones, and more.
The beautiful boutique is centered around a black, white, and gold color palette to complement Scutaro’s haute couture designs for US and international customers to browse. Designs are featured for both men and women and are stunning in color and detail. Dresses ranged in color from pink to green to white bridal gowns, and men’s suit jackets and shirts were sleek and sophisticated in design.
Scutaro cut the ribbon on his new US venture with his manager, Mirley Gómez and the mayor of Coral Gables, Raul Valdes-Fauli. The two were also presented medals by the mayor after the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
