About Giorgio Taroni
Heir to an ancient family connected with the prestigious silk industry of Como, Giorgio Taroni already showed as a young boy an incredible talent for drawing. He decided to become a textile designer after a stage in Paris at the famous "Atelier Callisti" in Quai Voltaire (between 1968-69), at that time working for Bianchini Ferier and Abraham.
He opened his own Atelier back in his hometown Como. The "Taroni Disegni" grew rapidly and very successfully and in a few years came to employ over 40 designers, opening his own print plant. Giorgio then began selling his artwork all over Europe and, shortly after, America and Japan.
Giorgio designed and created scarves for the line "Oscar de la Renta" for over 15 years. He collaborated with most important textile factories of Como for the greatest Italian stylists like Gianni Versace, Moschino, Lorenzo Riva. It is worth mentioning the very successful floral series of designs with red roses and callas for "Valentino".
Giorgio also designed for ceramics factories of the calibre of Richard Ginori, with which he established a very successful collaboration. Giorgio continued selling his artworks all around the world for over twenty years but in 1990, he left textile design to pursue another dream of his as an art dealer and interior decorator. His talent and interest in Art, Architecture and Decorative Arts has pushed him to the top of each field he has entered.
