A Path of Vision and Innovation

Francesco Casile, founder and CEO of Casile&Casile Fashion Group, has played a crucial role in transforming the Italian fashion scene. His career began in Milan, where he moved with his friend Gianni Versace to pursue ambitions in the fashion world.

Starting as a warehouse worker at Happening Mode, Casile went on to become sales manager and founded a leading made-in-Italy company.

In addition, as a visionary co-founder of the Milan Fashion Showroom Chamber, Casile revolutionized support for emerging talent and brands.

A Leader and an Educator

In addition to his business success, Francesco Casile has distinguished himself for his commitment to educating young talent. As a lecturer at four universities in Milan and an active mentor, he has positively influenced the lives of numerous students, preparing them to competently enter the job market. His indefatigable enthusiasm, even at age 78, is an inspiration to many young people who see in him a model of passion and dedication.

An Ongoing Commitment to Excellence

Under Casile’s leadership, the Casile&Casile Fashion Group has expanded its reach internationally, serving more than 450 clients worldwide and promoting Italian excellence in strategic markets such as Russia, Eastern Europe, Korea and Japan. Daughter Alessia’s joining the company marked the beginning of a new era of innovation and growth, with a special focus on the adoption of new technologies and sustainability.
