Altough the french-born designer mainly lives in the United States today, she’s frequently traveling between Paris and New York City. A fact necessary to back up the main goal of Malandrino’s design concept which tries to blend the romance and elegance of Paris with the energy of Manhattan. Malandrino started off with her own brand in the mid 90s and currently runs over 10 flagship boutiques. In addition, her designs are sold in over 400 department stores and specialty boutiques around the globe. The companies CEO is Bernard Aiden, who’s not only Malandrino’s business partner but also romantically involved with the french designer.

    Christian Dior, French fashion designer, lived from 1905 to 1957. Dior was an influential fashion figure in the 20th century, best known as the founder of one of the world’s top fashion couture houses, aka Christian Dior. In 1946, the French designer established his fashion house and introduced just one year later his first fashion collection named ‘Corolle’ (English: the botanical term corolla or circlet of flower petals), that went down in fashion history as the ‘New Look’. Dior’s designs were more sensual than the masculine, over-sized shapes of the recent World War II styles.Today, the French fashion house is owned by the LVMH luxury goods group and is directed by Raf Simons at the helm of its creative department. The 21 year-old Yves Saint Laurent, Dior’s design assistant back at the time and creative director at the fashion house after Dior’s death, Marc Bohan, who instilled his conservative style on the collections until 1996 and the young British designer John Galliano who worked at the couture house until March 2011, were all once also designing couture and pret-a-porter clothes as creative directors for the French fashion house.

The fashion house is one of the most ancient in haute couture and the founder herself was one of the most influential designers of the 1920s and ’30s. Her skillful use of beaded appliques, trimmings, exquisite fabrics and floral colors became a Lanvin trademark. The success of the fashion house was extraordinary and went on after her death in 1946 under the leadership of her daughter Marguerite di Pietro. The fashion house of Lanvin went finally to Alber Elbaz in October 2001 after several changes of the ownership. He is now the artistic director for all activities, including interiors.

Céline herself designed for the fashion house from 1945 to 1997. After being the brands head designer for a stretch of 52 years, Celine stepped back and made room for Michael Kors who’d been reigning as the ready-to-wear designer and creative director from 1997 to 2004, followed by Italian designer Roberto Menichetti and Croatian designer Ivana Omazic.
