Stefano Pilati (born 1965) is an Italian fashion designer. From 2002 until 2012, he was the head designer of the fashion house Yves Saint Laurent. In late 2012 he left and became head of design at Ermenegildo Zegna.
Having seen his hometown grow into a fashion hotspot in the 1980s, Pilati gave up his course to qualify as a land surveyor, joined the fashion house Cerruti as an intern, and knew without a doubt in his mind that his future lay in the industry he saw thriving. He thus decided to embrace Milan's fashion scene and set out to learn everything there was to know about ready-to-wear apparel materials and production. A velvet manufacturer offered him his first job. A few months later, Pilati was designing that company's entire collection, and presenting it to Europe's leading ready-to-wear names.
In 2000, Pilati joined fashion house Yves Saint Laurent to run its ready-to-wear clothing design; he became head designer in 2004.
In 2012, 27th of February, Pilati left Yves Saint Laurent as the creative director which is a position he has held since 2004. It was announced on the 4th of September that he has signed on at Ermenegildo Zegna. More specifically, he is the head of design at Ermenegildo Zegna and creative director of Agnona, and he'll oversee Zegna's fashion show and the couture collection.
