Louis Dell'Olio never had any doubt about what his life's work would be. After three years at Parsons The New School of Design (during which he won a number of awards including the prestigious Norman Norell scholarship), Dell'Olio was hired to be Dominic Rompollo's assistant at the house of Teal Traina. It was there that Dell'Olio had his first opportunity to design sportswear.
Dell'Olio accepted a new position with Originala in 1971 as the designer for Giorgini, the company's new couture sportswear division. After two years, Donna Karan, his classmate at Parsons, asked him to join her at Anne Klein.
During the 10 years they designed together, Karan and Dell'Olio won three COTY Awards and were inducted into the COTY Hall of Fame in 1984. Dell'Olio soon became identified with elegant, wearable clothes that are fashionable season after season, yet always modern. He established a reputation for designing clothes that made women look and feel beautiful. Modern in their timelessness, wearable in terms of fit and comfort, and functional to accommodate today's busy lifestyles.
