Casting director Piergiorgio Del Moro grew up in a small beachside village just outside of Rome. Del Moro had been collecting fashion books since he was a teenager, yet his formal education initially pointed him toward a career in international law. After completing his studies, he received an opportunity to work in Asia as a production assistant and left the field of law behind. His production work in China and Japan opened his eyes to the world of casting, and in 2010 Del Moro moved to New York to establish himself as a casting agent.
His leg up into the fashion world came through his early friend and mentor Patti Wilson, an esteemed stylist, who hired Del Moro to cast models for her projects with smaller brands. Del Moro’s keen ability to cast the right model for the right moment became manifest in his early casting work, and his runway clientele quickly expanded within New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks.
Since then, Del Moro has cast the runways of iconic fashion houses that include Dries Van Noten, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton Men, Max Mara, Moncler, Moschino, Ralph Lauren, Saint Laurent, Salvatore Ferragamo, Simone Rocha, Tom Ford, Versace and Victoria Beckham.
Del Moro also casts talents for countless advertising clients including Tiffany and Co., Michael Kors, MAC Cosmetics, and Adidas. Notably, he has cast the iconic Pirelli calendar since 2017 with prolific photographers Peter Lindbergh, Tim Walker, Albert Watson and Paolo Roversi with casts including: Charlotte Rampling, Emma Watson, Jessica Chastain, Kate Winslet, Nicole Kidman, Uma Thurman, Yara Shahidi, Zhang Ziyi, RuPaul, Sean "P Diddy" Combs, and Misty Copeland just to name a few. He has collaborated with musicians Rihanna, Madonna, Lana Del Rey, and actors such as Julianne Moore, Brooke Shields, Whoopi Goldberg and Iconic Models Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell for various fashion brands such as Acne Studios, Lacoste, Fenty, and Saint Laurent.
Del Moro continues to support both emerging and established talents in their editorial pursuits as the Contributing Casting Director for Vogue Italia, Vogue Japan, and WSJ. Magazine.
