School helped him organise his thoughts; however the hands-on experience he gained from working in the fashion industry was his move valuable education.

While still in school, Santino began assisting acclaimed artist/designer Tony Duquette. This experience was one of the biggest turning points in Santino's life.

With a love for the process of making things, Santino was adamant on learning everything he could about dressmaking. He became skilled at all the technical aspects of garment construction.
