A family run Fashion Design Company based in the Los Angeles area.
Operated by sisters Chiara and Ariana Zuccolotto, Zuccolotto Designs launched its Luxury label Zuccolotto back in 2014, with a special focus on Equestrian show coats.
Taking pride in our quality, fit and textile advancement, Zuccolotto Designs’ core focus is to produce a lasting item for their customers. Our desire is to modernize the classic silhouettes of fashion with the twenty-first-century textile technology.
Our Luxury line Zuccolotto has a unique balance between athlete and fashion, creating a cross-over appeal. Zuccolotto has made its way into both the Equestrian market and the ready-to-wear market.
Now twenty-three and the eldest of the two sisters is the President/Designer of the company.
Graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising back in 2013, Chiara decided she wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a business owner.
Having shared a life long passion of riding horses and having ridden and shown with her sister for the last nineteen years, Chiara knew she wanted to be a designer in the Equestrian apparel market.
Chiara specializes in textiles and works closely with the Zuccolotto Designs manufacturing houses.
At the young age of twenty-one, Ariana Zuccolotto has taken on the role of Social Marketing Manager for the Zuccolotto Designs Company, although that is not the only role you will see her in.
Ariana is frequently seen modeling the Zuccolotto line in many of the Zuccolotto Designs ads. As an active competitor in the jumper ring Ariana is often seen (in her pink riding boots) working and riding alongside her sister at shows both on the East and West Coast.
Zuccolotto Designs launched its ambassador program this January, in an effort to help showcase the next generation of riders along with donations to AIM. Ariana who is now the Brand Ambassador/Sponsored rider program manager is a huge part of its growth and success.
BEHIND THE NAME
In Fonte Italy, the original Zuccolotto farmhouse sits
In a field of what once was a traditional Italian farm. The Zuccolotto family own the property until 3 years ago. Just over 100 years ago, Eugene Zuccolotto was born. The last of three generations to be born in the farmhouse, Eugene Zuccolotto was the second oldest of four brothers and the only brother to leave Italy. With a natural gift in woodwork, he studied to be a carriage maker, working out of a small workshop on the border of Fonte and Crespano Del Grappa.
In the town of Crespano Del Grappa lived the Favero”s, close family friends and the future relatives of the Zuccolottos. The Favero family owned a tobacco shop in the small town of Crepsano, which is still open and running to this day. Eugene Zuccolotto left Fonte for America to take a job in New York city as a carriage maker. After Eugene Zuccolotto arrived in New York City, already late in his twenties, he married Theresa Ferranto who’s mother was a Favero. They had three boys and one daughter in their marriage, the youngest son being David Zuccolotto.
David Zuccolotto is the grandfather to Chiara Zuccolotto and Ariana Zuccolotto, making both Chiara and Ariana third generation Italians to be born in the USA and part of only a few family members to still work with horses across the many branches of the Zuccolotto family tree.
Zuccolotto Designs is a proud continuation of the Zuccolotto legacy and its equestrian back round.
