    Let’s ask the Fashion Dictionary: Who’s Sonia Rykiel?

    Sonia Rykiel was a French fashion designer who was born in 1930 in Paris and sadly just died on August 25th 2016.

    Must known fashion person #59: Sonia Rykiel

    Rykiel started her fashion career as a window displayer in a Parisian textile store. After not finding any soft sweaters to wear while she was pregnant in 1962, she decided to design her own knitwear maternity clothes and tiny sweaters 5 years later. Due to her love to knits she was soon crowned ‘The Queen of Knits’ by the Americans in 1967.

    Rykiel also became the first designer to put seams on the outside of a garment, and to print words on her sweater.
