Some History of Averdo Bessi - Averdo Bessi was founded in 1950. In 1968 the first collection was presented to the fashion world. "I started at a very early age, working in a fashion atelier. My objective was designing and creating clothing for women, as well as men" said the founder of his namesake fashion house. Bessi's prints are very reminiscent of Emilio Pucci and he signed his prints as well. Bessi was a Pucci impressionist and contemporary. Their items are finally reaching the price range and respect given to their predecessor Emilio Pucci.
