"Celeste is an apparition from a fairytale and I always feel like birds will start talking when I’m around her. The real surprise however is that there is a strong, grounded contemporary woman behind the facade of the porcelain princess. I think that her collection reflects this – it is a perfect balance of romantic, practical & modern".
"Celeste is a true passion for this job ... I know her since she was taking her first steps in fashion and has never failed to amaze me. She is really special, manages to make modern romance ... her creations are always full of love and pleasant lightness and that is why I will never stop to follow her with the passion and the joy I felt when I saw her first collection".

"Celeste is a set of talents, who have found in fashion design their balance. I have always appreciated her nonconformity mixed at the correct dose of conventionality, acute intelligence, fast, which leads her to comply with natural grace, the boundaries between normality and transgression. All of this can be traced in her clothes, in line both ancient and modern sexy female. Clothes that speak to a woman who loves to show and hide, in an endless game of seduction".
The Brand Philosophy
The brand’s distinguishing signs are it’s fresh image, the amusing mini dresses, the great ruches on the neo-boldist sleeves and joyful miniskirts with precious fabrics in a fanciful imaginary dominated by colours. The atmosphere is contemporary, young but sophisticated and conscious.
In her collections, Celeste Pisenti reveals the stories of those iconic characters that made of their home a private oasis, a place of worship, a surreal and scenographic world where art, science and culture meet, giving life to astounding projects and impressive collaborations.
