THE BRAND: ANNE FONTAINE, Paris, FRANCE
It all began one day in 1993 when Anne Fontaine (a french designer) discovered an old trunk filled to the brim with shirts. Fascinated by fashion, she was instantly inspired: a white shirt should be the centre-piece of every woman’s wardrobe. Borrowed from the men’s closet, it would be a symbol of today’s woman: modern, active and independent, a woman seeking natural elegance and daily pleasure. Every woman could have fun with this piece and assert her identity with creative flair.It could be worn on a wide variety of occasions, during the day or as evening wear. It could be accessorized and dressed up or down for a relaxed, elegant or professional style. Anne Fontaine boldly threw herself into the venture. She started by designing and inventing a whole world in white. The Anne Fontaine fashion house was born. Follow this grandios brand HERE.
