Meet Peter Fasano

Textile Designer

  • 1

    Right now, I'm inspired by

    One Man’s Folly, a book about Furlow Gatewood by Julia Reed. He’s in his 90s, still designing and having fun—beyond inspiring.

  • 2

    My piece of advice

    When starting a business, do not be discouraged when hearing the word no. Solider on.

  • 3

    My style icon

    is Albert Hadley—now and forever. And too many living designers to mention.

  • 4

    My favorite art

    is by Cy Twombly.

  • 5

    My cheap thrill

    I like buying socks.

  • 6

    My necessary luxuries

    are great wine and not flying coach.

  • 7

    If I had a different career

    I’d be a travel writer with a small camera. Or a professional golfer.

  • 8

    My favorite day of every year

    is a hard call—either July 4th or Thanksgiving.

  • 9

    I'd like to spend a day in the life of

    Peter O’Toole when he was in his 40s or Peter Townsend.

  • 10

    My next adventure

    is Plettenberg Bay in South Africa.

Inspired by: "One Man's Folly" by Julia Reed
