It's Women's History Month and to celebrate we wanted to shine the spotlight on three female fashion designers and brands we love!
Designer Spotlight on Celine

Celine is a luxury French fashion brand known for its minimalist and sophisticated aesthetic. The brand was founded in 1945 by Celine Vipiana and initially focused on creating made-to-measure children's shoes. Over time, the brand expanded into ready-to-wear clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories.

Celine is known for its iconic handbag designs, including the Luggage Tote and the Trapeze Bag, which have become must-have accessories for fashion insiders and celebrities alike.

In 2008, the brand was acquired by the luxury conglomerate LVMH and underwent a major transformation under the creative direction of Phoebe Philo. Philo's designs for Celine were characterized by their clean lines, understated elegance, and focus on practicality and wearability.

During Philo's tenure, Celine became one of the most influential fashion brands in the industry, setting trends and inspiring other designers with its minimalist aesthetic. Philo left the brand in 2018, and was succeeded by Hedi Slimane, who previously designed for Saint Laurent.

Under Slimane's direction, Celine has taken on a new, more rock-and-roll-inspired aesthetic, with a focus on skinny tailoring, mini dresses, and bold prints. The brand has also expanded its offering to include menswear and fragrances.

Designer Spotlight on Marni

MARNI is an Italian luxury fashion brand that was founded in 1994 by the designer Consuelo Castiglioni and her husband, Gianni Castiglioni.

The brand is known for its unique approach to design, which often combines unexpected fabrics, textures, and colors to create distinctive and playful looks. Castiglioni's designs for MARNI were characterized by their unconventional use of materials, such as fur, PVC, and other unexpected fabrics, and their emphasis on shape and proportion.

Under Castiglioni's creative direction, MARNI became known for its quirky, offbeat aesthetic, which appealed to a sophisticated, artistic clientele.
