Giuliana Teso is an Italian designer of furs and ready-to-wear fashion. Born in Bergamo. In 1978, she joined the new furrier business founded by her husband Riccardo, the Papillon company of Vancimuglio near Vicenza. Two years later, in order to personalize her fashion production, she presented her first Collection. In 1983, she participated in the Pelzmesse in Frankfurt, the international fur fair, and in 1984, she took part in the highly selective American Legend event, with reversible crocodile-stamped minks and furs for evening wear adorned with pearls and costume jewelry. In 1987 she was invited to Contemporary, in the context of Milan Collezioni. The American department stores Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus dedicated display windows and corner shops to her work.
She continued her stylistic development, establishing her presence in American, Far Eastern, and European markets.
Philip Hockey -- located in London, in the heart of the City -- selected her creations to offer his demanding clientele the elegance and quality of Italian Style. A Teso corner shop is in the Fashion and Novelty Department of the London department store Harrods.
She opened single-label shops in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Currently, she is also presenting a vast Collection of overcoats with fur trimming, made with the attention and craftsmanship used in the making of the furs, along with a new line of leather, suede, and fabric.
