Filippo Bruno di Tornaforte was born in Padua, the family is a little unusual, while on the other it is very traditional. The father is the offspring of an ancient and aristocratic Piedmontese family that built its fortune in the seventeenth century with the production of silk that supplied the Royal House of Savoy.
Filippo's love of fashion leads him to an internship at Guess, following this experience, Filippo joins the team at Exté, a brand that focuses on experimenting and on the design of the future, working in the men's collection.

Filippo continues in his role of consultant for a number of brands including Valentino, Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta and Yves Saint Laurent.
In 2011 he moves to New York where he begins working at Ralph Lauren as creative consultant for the runway collection. While in New York, he meets Salvatore Prete; together they create their own brand Prete&Bruno, with the goal of bringing a breath of European charm to the "grey and ordinary" catwalks of New York. In September 2014, Filippo becomes involved with the launch of the new international luxury brand, LUVÉ focused on bags, shoes and evining dresses, as the Head of Design.
