Fausto Sarli, who died on 9 December aged 83, was one of Italy's leading high fashion designers, known for his artisan touch and elegant gowns.
The Naples-born designer was considered a master of style. He presented his first collection at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence in 1954 at the age of 29, and in 1958 he established his own house, in Naples. He dressed leading women in the Italian TV and film world in slinky, beautifully tailored gowns. He was also famous for his wedding dresses. The Italian president Giorgio Napolitano praised his originality, sobriety and quality.
