But Russia also has someone to be proud of, and today we present you the top 10 of the most popular and sought-after designers who are known not only in our homeland, but also in the whole world:

Even as a teenager, he became interested in needlework and sewing, and even went to study at a technical school, where he mastered the profession of an artist in painting fabrics. And later received a higher education in Moscow.

His first experimental collection, in which funny and extravagant padded jackets were presented, light skirts and colorful felt boots, was the beginning of a great career. Although precisely because of her Zaitsev was removed from high office.

But the photos taken by a French journalist soon saw the whole world, and the young designer was invited to Paris, where he very soon presented his full-fledged collection.

In 1980, he was honored to sew clothes for Soviet athletes for the Olympics, and in the 90s he collaborated with the famous cosmetics brand L’Oreal, developing the Marusya care line.

Zaitsev has numerous awards and recognition of the most famous fashion houses in the world, as well as the country's leadership. For more than half a century of work, he managed to create a huge number of collections of clothes, costumes for films, performances, as well as Russian pop stars.

Valentin Yudashkin. The designer received worldwide fame after his debut show at the High Fashion Week in Paris (1991). One of the outfits after the runway show was even sent to the Louvre. First, under the brand Valentin Yudashkin produced women's and men's clothing, and later came shoes, jewelry, perfumes, glasses and even dishes.

Particularly famous among girls is his line of wedding dresses, one of which Mila Jovovich chose to shoot in the movie "Freaks".

Ulyana Sergeenko. In the fashion party, Ulyana first appeared as the wife of millionaire Daniil Khachaturov, and later became one of the trendsetters. Her first collection was released in 2011 and was highly appreciated by leading fashion critics. Light skirts to the floor of the flower color, astrakhan coats a la the USSR, dresses resembling school uniforms - all this caused unprecedented interest from a huge number of fashionistas all over Russia.

Having debuted at the High Fashion Week in Paris, Uliana Sergeenko was honored to participate in it more than once. By the way, world stars such as Dita Von Teese, Lady Gaga, and singer Rita Ora are happy to wear dresses from her collections.

Kira Plastinina. The brand under the same name was launched by Kira's father - famous businessman Sergey Plastinin. In 2007, the first boutique opened in Moscow where clothes for women were sold at quite reasonable prices. Subsequently, the brand began to actively move in America, and Kira became a famous young fashion designer, not only in Russia, but throughout the world.

Over time, the girl decided to expand her target audience, and introduced the "adult" label LUBLU Kira Plastinina.

Igor Chapurin. His career began with a victory in the competition of young talents of the fashion house Nina Ricci in 1992. In time, Igor opened his Fashion House and the first boutique where it was possible to buy ready-to-wear clothes and haute couture, as well as accessories.

Today, clothes from Chapurin are in the closets of almost all domestic stars of show business and the first ladies of the country. The designer even created outfits for the finalists of the beauty contests “Miss Europe”, “Miss World” and “Miss Universe”.

Among the fans of his talent there are such famous people as supermodel Naomi Campbell, singer Tony Braxton and Beyonce.

Alena Akhmadullina. This woman, whom world fashion magazines annually recognize as the property of the Russian fashion industry, manages to combine in her collections femininity and courage, bordering on audacity. She loves the three-dimensional elements that make every thing unusual and stylish.

Alena Akhmadullina's brand clothes appear regularly on the pages of fashion magazines Vogue, Marie Claire, and among admirers of the designer's talent there is the singer Zemfira, Patricia Kaas, actress Eva Green, supermodel Naomi Campbell.

Elena Yarmak. Having a fur coat from the collection of this designer is a sign of excellent taste. In addition to fur products, the fashion house Helen Yarmak also produces outerwear, accessories and jewelry.

Elena began to try herself as a fashion designer in the 90s, leaving her job at a cybernetic research institute. Tailoring the first collection she ordered at the factory "Red Dawn", introduced herself as a representative of a fictional Canadian company. But the sketches aroused such interest that even when the deception was revealed, things were nevertheless sewn.

Helen Yarmak has chic clothes in the wardrobe of Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga.

Denis Simachev. Born in a family of hereditary military, Denis decided to break all stereotypes about the need to continue the tradition, and began to develop clothing. Until 2000, when Simachev created his brand, he did not officially work anywhere.

After graduating from the Textile Academy in 1999, he almost immediately set about creating his own collection. His T-shirts, jackets and jeans were decorated with symbols of the Soviet era and Khokhloma painting, and instantly became popular.

When it came time to open a shop, Simachev decided to combine the useful with the pleasant, making a bar on the first floor where all the avid Moscow party-goers began to gather, and on the second - a boutique.

Svetlana Takkori. For 15 years, Svetlana lived in Milan and was the official distributor of many fashion brands in Russia, and in 2013, Takkori launched her own brand.

In the debut collection you could see funny hats and volumetric warm scarves made by hand.

Now you can also buy sweaters and coats in Tak.ori boutiques.

Vika Gazinskaya. She is one of the most creative Russian designers. From the age of 16, she clearly defined her goal in life - to become a famous person in the fashion world, so much so that buyers look forward to each new collection.

For this, Victoria graduated from the Faculty of Costume Design, several times won young talent contests, and went abroad to study. The result was several collections of clothing that had a stunning success.

Designer - very hard and difficult work. The path to the emergence of a new thing is thorny, starting from the idea, ending with tailoring, and creating a show for the show. But grateful customer feedback fully pays back the effort. And then it becomes clear that all this was not in vain.

Mia Gammelgard - designer from Stockholm

After graduating from Stockholm University of the Arts and the Royal Academy of Arts in Copenhagen, the Swede begins his journey into the world of design.

She is ready to take over the management of the project and lead it to the end.

One of the most famous works of the master is the Hippo chair. Many associate the name with the hippie style. Knitted leggings are put on the legs of the wooden chair. In fact, the salt of the name in another. A Potamus table is attached to the Hippo chair. And here in front of the audience is a hulking hippo. This is not contrary to the concept of creativity Gammelgard, who believes that design is a game. And this game winds around creativity, production and dialogue between people.

Brothers Burulleki - unique duet

The French Ronan and Erwan Burulleka are specialists in furniture, product design and interior design.

The passion for repetition is expressed in working with him. To transform textiles, they each time look for unusual methods, referring to old techniques or original forms. Despite the technical progress, Burulleks like to draw sketches in pencil, returning to the original sources.

Alessandra Baldereshi - promising mistress

Alessandra Baldereshi is considered one of the most promising women designers who are creating now. Famous interior designers and their work (you can see the photo in the article) are widely known.

Eastern experience makes itself felt: the designer's work is interesting and unusual. They combine Italian romanticism and oriental laconism. Among her works stands a chair consisting of a simple metal frame, but decorated with skillfully selected pillows. Еще один успех Балдареши – аквариум в форме кита, внутри которого плещутся рыбки.

Мастерица стремится быть ближе к природе. Все ее творения явно говорят об этом. Нежный светильник с лепестками из акрила выглядит как настоящий георгин, который только что принесли их сада. Но верхом карьеры итальянки считают ковровое покрытие, которое на первый взгляд не отличить от натурального мха.

Лучшие дизайнеры России

В нашей стране живет много талантливых людей. Постоянно открываются новые студии, предлагающие интерьер-проекты. But who are they, famous interior designers of Russia?

Famous Russian interior designers often work in pairs. For example, Olesya Sitnikova and Ekaterina Tulupova created their own bureau called “Arch. Subject”. Having met in Milan, where the craftswomen were trained, they decided to work together in Russia. Eclectic and fusion - the main styles of their work.

Arch4 is known since the 90s of the last century. Now it is headed by Natalya Lobanova and Ivan Chuvelev. Designers prefer to work with large projects.

Interior designers are undoubtedly special people. It is their work that often determines the face of the era in which we live. Thanks to them, we can admire and use many pieces of furniture, lighting fixtures. They created and create comfort in our homes.

Born in 1988. In 2014 she graduated from MGHPA them. S.A. Stroganova, Department of Furniture Design. The graduation project of the LOLO kitchen module was taken into serial production by the domestic company Luch.

“I entered the Stroganov MGHPA even when there was a 6-year education system and the department was called more academically:“ The artistic design of furniture. ” I believe that such a long study was correct for me, because during this time I truly realized myself in this profession and matured for independent design. While I was studying, tangible innovations began to occur, new teachers arrived, the name changed to Furniture Design.

I studied with Kirill and Elena Cheburashkin - young, energetic, open to everything new and doing a lot for the development of the department. We were given very interesting tasks, motivated to search and create a new one. Along with them, my teacher was a very experienced architect, Yevgeny Ivanovich Matvienko, and he gave very important fundamentals, since the creation of furniture is in many respects similar to architectural design. His consultations were very valuable and always forced to analyze and think. Education in Stroganov has always been fundamentally different, and this is close to me, since good designers always carry cultural codes. You need to learn to apply your knowledge in practice. I did a lot on my own - I was looking for foreign training programs, I learned how to do design research.

Recently I was in Stroganovka and I can note that today's students have even more opportunities and the way from theory to practice has become even shorter. Thanks to modern equipment workshops, trips and communication with practitioners, they know all the subtleties of design production - from the sketch to work on the machines. The department actively cooperates with the state in the framework of projects to update the appearance of schools and kindergartens, giving students the opportunity to express themselves in real work. ”

Born in 1988. In 2012 she graduated from SPbGHPA them. A. L. Shtiglits (formerly Mukhinskoe College), Department of Furniture Design.

“Already from the first year at the Shtiglits Academy, we were allowed to manufacture, and we could not only draw drawings on paper, but also participate in the implementation of our projects in the joinery workshops at our department. Accordingly, we could observe the entire process technology, which was an important practical experience. But today, technology has long gone ahead, and, in addition to wood, there is now a huge amount of other materials from which furniture can be made, and many new techniques for working with them. And some carpentry workshops are no longer enough. Alas, there is no basis for implementing some innovative solutions, and it is very difficult for a student to implement some kind of original idea even at the level of a single prototype. Unfortunately, most of the teachers own the specialty more in theory. They do not always manage to keep up with the times, but today everything is developing very rapidly. In my opinion, the department needs active professionals who have a broad outlook and are able to give the right direction. In this sense, we enviously looked at our colleagues from Stroganovka, where the situation today is noticeably changing precisely thanks to the enthusiasm of young teachers. I was lucky when the managers were distributed for graduation projects, an interesting young teacher Sergey V. Gorlov came to us. I showed a certain perseverance to be allowed to do a diploma under his command, which I never regretted. With great difficulty, we managed to defend ideas that no one in the department believed, except for the two of us. As a result, the project received the highest rating.

We have a friendly furniture department in the German city of Halle, with which there were exchanges of students and teachers. It was a very important experience when I understood the fundamental difference in the approach to learning in our country and in Europe. As a rule, we have a teacher who dominates, therefore, in the final version of the student project, there is not much left of the student's idea. Often, in theses, it is immediately obvious who led them. When a teacher came to us from Germany, then from the moment the first sketch was shown, he did everything to develop your author's idea, not to change it, namely to suggest opportunities for your individual decisions.

One of the important factors during my studies, I consider participation in student contests and exhibitions, is an excellent experience and motivation for development. Information about them must be actively conveyed to the students, even better if they were integrated into the learning process, which in our educational practice practically did not happen. ”

Gabriel Boner Chanel (Coco Chanel)

Famous Mademoiselle is known today, probably everyone. She is quoted, she is sought to imitate. She had a great influence on the fashion of the 20th century, founded the fashion house Chanel, presented her brand perfumery to the world with numbers. Coco got her nickname when she sang in a cabaret. She was an extraordinary, bold and bright personality, with great willpower and impeccable taste. We owe her the modernization of women's fashion, the borrowing of many items from the men's wardrobe, the popularity of the versatile little black dress, pearls, tweed suits, small hats, bijoux and tan.

Coco Chanel made luxury practical. Most of all in clothes she appreciated comfort and embodied this principle in her collections. She said that "luxury should be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury." Among the clients and acquaintances of Mademoiselle were many celebrities. In an interview to a question about what events in life have awakened her interest in art, she replied: “Living in an orphanage under the supervision of nuns, I learned to sew. They taught me the basic skills of a seamstress, then I was already smart enough to understand the method. I really got my hand and focused on design at an early age, which is why I quickly made my clients known. ”

Chanel opened its first store in Paris in 1910. They sold hats. Later in her stores appeared and clothes. Interestingly, the very first dress that Chanel created was a dress made from a sweater. They paid attention to her outfit and asked where she bought it, and in response Koko suggested making the same outfit for those interested. She later said that her condition was "based on an old sweater that I put on because it was cold in Devil."

Karl Lagerfeld

One of the most influential fashion designers, a man of phenomenal performance, a multifaceted nature, a holder of many talents. This world-famous designer of German origin has been running the fashion house Chanel since 1983. In addition, Karl is a designer and founder of his own fashion brand, a talented photographer, director, owner of a publishing house and a personal library of 300 thousand volumes. Lagerfeld says about himself: “I am like a chameleon, several people live in me at the same time. Creating for me is like breathing. I do not even think about it. When I sit in the Chanel director chair, I am Chanel. When I go to Rome and am in the House of Fendi, I am Fendi. I begin work on a new collection the day before the previous one is shown. ”

His creative abilities were already apparent in early childhood. He studied at the Montaigne High School under the Syndicate of High Fashion on the same course as Yves Saint Laurent. Lagerfeld collaborated with a large number of famous fashion houses, created fragrances, lines of ready-made clothes, shoes and accessories. After in 1966 he created his first collection of fur products for Fendi, which was a huge success, the most influential people in the fashion world paid attention to him.

In the 70s, Lagerfeld began to collaborate with well-known directors and create costumes for actors of the Teatro alla Scala. He breathed new life into the fashion house Chanel, becoming its leader and designer, saying: “Yes, she said that fashion is dying and style is immortal. But the style must adapt, adjust to the fashion. Chanel had his own life. Great career. It is over. I did everything to extend it, and continue to do so that it lasts forever. My main task is to try to transpose what she was doing today. Guess what she would do, live now and here, find Mademoiselle in my place. ”

Friends call Karl Kaiser (Caesar, in German style) for his amazing ability to do several things at once. He hides his age and worries that there is not enough life to implement all his creative ideas. Lagerfeld loves books (he even created Paper Passion scent with the smell of a freshly printed book), draws illustrations for works, cannot imagine life without photography, sews costumes for cinema and theater, produces perfumes, creates his own brand, creates hotel designs, shoots short films and organizes exhibitions, releases women's collections.

Elsa Schiaparelli

The famous Italian designer of the first half of the 20th century, who is considered to be a surrealist from the fashion world, is the main rival of Chanel, the creator of the ready-to-wear style. Elsa was born in a family of aristocrats, from childhood she studied painting, art history, she loved theater. While working as a tour guide in Paris, Elsa watched how the least wives of rich Americans were interested in architecture and most of all - fashion stores. Supposedly it was then that she came up with the idea of ​​shocking the public with unusual clothes.

Acquainted with an emigrant from Armenia, whose knitted sweater Elsa liked so much, she persuaded her to create together unusual models of clothing. The fruit of their work was a very unusual black woolen dress with a bow in the form of a butterfly. Thanks to their work, they attracted attention and received a large order from the sportswear store Strauss. It was this order that gave glory to Schiaparelli and the knitwear factory of the Armenian diaspora. Elsa founded her fashion house. As originally conceived, she shocked the public with her collections. They embodied her wildest fantasies and dreams, expressed something irrational and incomprehensible. Every thing was unique. Many were created in a single copy. Hearts, constellations, hugging hands, snakes, giant flies, unusual patterns, embroidery and fancy accessories - all this attracted attention and shocked.

It was Elsa who first invented the concept of “boutique” (a store that sells small series of designer clothes). Many celebrities collaborated with Elsa and gladly acquired her clothes. Schiaparelli had a contract with Hollywood. She was friends with Salvador Dali (it was he who suggested her the idea of ​​a dress with lobster and parsley and a phone bag). Under the influence of Dali, Elsa created her most unusual things: a hat in the form of a shoe or an inkwell, gloves with pockets for matches. Costume jewelry was the embodiment of the strangest ideas, candy, medicines, erasers, feathers, pencils, dried beetles were used as materials.

Elsa often called her fashion house crazy. The popularity of Schiaparelli’s collections was immense, everyone wanted to have these strange clothes, even the Duchess of Windsor herself. But when she had to leave for the United States because of the start of World War II, she seemed to have been forgotten. Upon returning to Paris in 1944, her style ceased to be in demand. Chanel dominated the fashion scene, and Elsa decided to leave the fashion world.

Both talented women were innovators in the fashion world, but completely different. Chanel worked in the framework of the classics, without focusing on the brightness and catchiness. Elsa was extravagant, she loved to shock and provoke. The contribution of both to the fashion is undeniably invaluable, although the Schiaparelli brand has not existed for a long time. Elsa's ideas and discoveries can be seen embodied in modern fashion, as if she was ahead of her time. Unusual color combinations, the color “fuchsia” (shocking pink - this is also the idea of ​​Schiaparelli!), Bottles in the form of a woman’s body, fur shoes, ankle boots, unusual bags - all these are ideas of the talented Elsa, who greatly influenced the world of fashion and style .

Christian Dior

One of the most famous French fashion designers, to whom we owe ultragreen dresses in the style of new bow. He had artistic talent, and in his youth he dreamed of becoming a great artist. After his private Art Gallery went bankrupt, he survived difficult times, poverty and unemployment, but fate seemed to be preparing him a different way. He began to develop theatrical costumes, draw sketches for French fashion magazines. And these sketches became extremely popular, he began to cooperate with the fashion department of the newspaper Figaro, he was noticed. I decided to specialize in clothing models, although sketches of hats were much more popular. Dior was noticed by the famous fashion designer Piguet, but due to the war Dior’s career did not start then.

Upon his return from the army, Christian began working at the famous model house Lucien Lelong, where he learned a lot. In 1946, thanks to the financing of a textile magnate, Dior’s fashion house opened in Paris. At 42, he became famous; his first collection, which he called The Crowned Line, was recognized as a revolutionary and was a resounding success. Just imagine the post-war time when women were so yearned for beauty and sophistication, for emphasized feminine and luxurious dresses. Dior, incredibly sensitive and talented, felt the mood of society, his desires and dreams. Parisian women were so tired then of manly jackets and short skirts, that they enthusiastically met Dior's collection. Feminine silhouettes, luxurious and bright fabrics, stretched waist, ankle-length skirts (either fluffy or straight), small round shoulders - in this collection everything was the very embodiment of traditional femininity and charm.

But not everything was so rosy. Feminists criticized the collection, saying that a return to the crinolines and corsets shows the oppression of working women. Many believed that after the war, luxury and brightness are inappropriate and blasphemous. However, in spite of the criticism, the new bow fascinated the public. Dior’s popularity was overwhelming, his name became associated with luxury and good taste. Each of his collection waited with bated breath, and each was waiting for success.

Only in 1954 was the moment, a little dangerous for Dior's career, when Chanel returned to the fashion arena, who could not bear the “horrors of the 50s”, how she spoke about Dior's models. But Dior is very intelligent out of position, releasing a new collection, easy and relaxed. Other than before, but still the same feminine. Silhouettes were more natural, lines softened. Dior's personal assistant, after the death of the great couturier, once said that "if Dior were alive, fashion would not be in such a deplorable state in which it is now."

Yves Saint Laurent

One of the leading fashion designers of the 20th century, whom Christian Dior chose as his successor. Since childhood, he drew and loved the theater, did homemade puppet shows, pasted costumes and painted scenery. Лоран работал ассистентом у Диора и был очарован его гением, а Диор в свою очередь сразу признал в молодом человеке будущего мастера.

В 21 год Лоран становится главой одного из самых известных модных домов после скоропостижной смерти Диора и буквально спасает бренд от финансовой гибели. Он представил свою первую женскую коллекцию более мягкого и легкого варианта нью-лука с силуэтом трапеция. Лоран был первым, кто представил французскую моду в СССР (1959 год), прилетев сюда с 12 манекенщицами.

It seemed that there were bright prospects ahead as a successor who justified the expectations of the late Dior. But it was not, however, without envy and trouble. The owner of the fashion house Dior (Marcel Boussac), according to rumors, insisted that Saint Laurent be sent to military service in Africa, thereby wishing to get rid of the designer. There he learns that he was fired from the fashion house Dior.

In 1961, the Yves Saint Laurent brand (Yves Saint Laurent) appeared, his first collection was a great success. Oriental motifs, bright colors, inspiration come from African countries. Saint-Laurent also produces perfumes, works as a theater artist, creates scenery and costumes.

The ideas of the subsequent collections of Laurent also received great recognition and became a kind of fashionable classic: women's tuxedos (later they became the brand's brand feature), trouser suits, high boots, high-neck sweaters, black leather jackets, safari dresses, ethnic motifs. Laurent becomes the first designer who produces a full line of ready-to-wear, as well as the first designer to whom the exhibition in the Metropolitan Museum is dedicated during his lifetime.

Giorgio armani

The Italian fashion designer is called the pioneer of the fashion of the 20th century, a master of cut, an adept of quality and a great esthete. Giorgio from childhood loved art and theater, he drew and sewed doll clothes. He had a dream to become an actor, but his parents insisted on the profession of a doctor. After two years of study, Giorgio left the university. He found himself in the fashion world. Armani created his own brand in 1974, and before that, he worked as a window dresser at a large chain department store, and also created men's clothing for Nino Cherruti.

Professional skills of working with Armani fabric have led to the fact that thanks to him, the approach to sewing men's clothing has completely changed. Appeared lightness and smoothness, which, along with simplicity and conciseness, provide its products a special chic and convenience. After the overwhelming success of the men's collection, Armani began to represent women's collections, paying attention to especially working women. In its collections, traditional views harmoniously coexist with the latest trends. He modernized the classics with great grace and taste. Luxurious materials, experiments with a combination of fabrics, functionality and versatility, casual elegance are the distinctive features of the Armani collections.

Ralph lauren

The famous American designer, who is called the king of the finished dress, "discovered America America." His company (Polo Ralph Lauren Corporation) manufactures accessories, clothing, underwear, textiles, furniture, wallpaper, perfumery, and tableware. Lauren three times received the title of "Designer of the Year", and also awarded the title of "Fashion Legend" (Design Council of the United States). For many people, Ralph Loren is an example of how a person from a low social stratum can reach great heights, having a dream and talent. A native of Belarus (his parents met and married in the US), from a poor family with many children, Ralph from a young age set a goal for himself to succeed. He was struck by the wardrobe of a classmate who belonged only to him alone, and in which his clothes were so neatly laid out. In the apartment of Ralph, the closet was one for all. Since then, the future designer has decided to work and save money for his dream.

Interestingly, Lauren does not have a fashion designer diploma, but he is one of the world's best designers. He himself does not sew clothes, but is an inspirer, designer, thinks through every collection to the smallest detail. The designer himself says: “I never went to a fashion school - I was a young guy who had his own style. I could not imagine that “polo” would become what it is. I just followed my instincts. ”

At first, Ralph worked as a salesman (selling clothes, gloves and ties), then became a designer of neckties, created a fundamentally new model (inspired by the novel The Great Gatsby): a wide silk tie (while thin ties were in fashion at the time). Thanks to the investor, Lauren and her brother opened a store and their own brand Polo Fashion. People wanted high-quality and stylish things and accessories, the brand gained more and more popularity. Lauren released a collection of ready-made clothes (first for men and then for women) and accessories. He was the only one who began to produce sports shirts in 24 shades.

Lorena's collections combine chic, sophistication and at the same time ease, simplicity and brightness. “My clothes are a vision of what I believe in. Someone once told me that I am a writer. It's true - I write through my clothes. She embodies history, not just clothes, ”said Loren. Ralph's wife inspired him to create collections of women's clothing: “My wife has a good taste and her own style. When she wore shirts, sweaters and jackets bought in men's stores, people always asked where she got it. I associated her with young Katherine Hepburn, a rebellious girl on a horse with hair flowing in the wind. I created shirts for her. ” Lauren styled western clothes. A polo shirt, it seems, will never go out of fashion.

The boy's dreams of Ralph came true: he is one of the richest people in the world, he has a strong family, three children, he owns a ranch and is one of the world's largest collectors of vintage cars.

Roberto Cavalli

The famous Italian designer asks to call himself a “fashion artist” and is famous for his exotic and spectacular collections of clothing and accessories. His fashion house adheres to the philosophy of femininity, chic and bright temperament. The designer himself said in an interview that his fashion “became successful and relevant, because other designers continued to produce monotonous things ... For a long time, designers tried to dress women on a par with men. I changed this trend. I try to emphasize with clothes the feminine, sexual side that is present in every woman. ”

A great influence on the discovery of talent Cavalli had his grandfather, a famous artist Giuseppe Rossi, and his mother, who was a dressmaker and designer. As a child, helping his mother with sewing clothes, Cavalli realized that he wanted to engage in design and fashion. He was one of the best students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, he studied the technology of creating printing on textiles. Even then, he created a series of floral prints, which are interested in large factories in Italy. Cavalli always liked to experiment, while still studying at the Academy, he began to invent various ways of dyeing skin and fabric, he was then only 20 years old.

And so, these experiments led to the fact that in the early 70s Cavalli himself invented and patented a system for printing on the skin, which allowed her to dye in six different colors. This revolutionary invention instantly became popular with various fashion houses. Elastic denim jeans are another hit from Cavalli, which ensured House prosperity and success.

Roberto Cavalli's bright and extravagant clothes are in great demand among fashionistas of the whole world; they are worn by the most glamorous celebrities on the planet. Cavalli believes that a woman should have character and strongly manifested individuality. In one of the interviews he said: “Beauty comes from the inside, and is a reflection of the individuality of each person ... Beauty is a business card that helps at the first meeting, but it is completely useless at the second.”

Valentino Garavani

The founder of the fashion house Valentino, a famous Italian fashion designer from childhood loved to draw, in his youth he loved art and was interested in fashion. He was an apprentice, he studied at the School of Fine Arts in Paris, and at the School of the High Fashion Chamber. He worked in several fashion houses, then opened his own studio. His works were distinguished by sophistication, beautiful cut, expensive fabrics, manual decor, refinement. In 1960, the Valentino brand appeared.

Thanks to a meeting with the architect Giametti, the future CEO of the fashion house, Valentino gets the opportunity to engage only in creativity, without delving into the subtleties of the business. He himself said: “I only know how to draw dresses, receive guests and decorate a house, but I don’t understand anything in business”. In one of the collections of the 60s, there were red dresses that later became the hallmark of the fashion house of Valentino. The designer says: “Red is the best color. It fits any woman, just need to remember that there are more than 30 different shades of this color. ”

The designer for many years dressed celebrities, many of them preferred to purchase exquisite wedding gowns from him. Among his clients were such legendary personalities as Jacqueline Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor. At the Oscar Awards, many actresses were shining in Valentino outfits. In 2007, the famous fashion designer announced his retirement from the fashion world, and in 2008, at the Haute Couture Week in Paris, a farewell show was held, in which all models took to the catwalk in red dresses, and the audience applauded standing.

Diana von Furstenberg

Her career began with the fact that she was an assistant owner of a large textile manufactory Ferretti. Striving for independence and independence from a young age, being purposeful, she began to create her own dresses. It was the creation of the famous dress with zapAh (wrap dress) that made Diana famous. At first, the dress was puzzling that it looked like a robe, did not have buttons and zippers. But after trying it on, it turned out that this dress was a real masterpiece, as it was sitting perfectly on any figure, it was slim, it was not crumpled, it was easily put on, it was appropriate in any situation.

Diana wanted to help women look more feminine and charming. She said: “Looking at what is being offered to the ladies in New York shops — everything is somehow formless, sexless,” I thought that it would be necessary to bring the dress back into fashion - feminine, sexy, flirty and eternal. With a dress on the market, recognition awaits me - I got this thought in my head, and, in general, it turned out to be prophetic ... ”Diana’s collections were a resounding success, and she began to expand the range of the DVF brand (Diane von Furstenberg). Appeared perfumes, accessories, furniture.

When popularity over the years began to fall, Diana took up the publishing of books in Paris. But she returned to the fashion industry a few years later, announcing herself with the release of silk overalls Silk Assets. The huge success contributed to the fact that in the world of fashion they remembered about the famous and comfortable dresses with zapAH. And since then, the popularity of Diana’s collections has not been reduced, and she’s unchanging success is showing her feminine collections to the world. The brand also produces shoes. Fans of the brand DVF are many celebrities. By the way, a copy of the famous dress with zapAh, which has been popular for more than forty years, has been represented in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Costume Institute since 1973.
