Designer Spotlight - Emauel Ungaro

Photobucket Born to Italian parents who had fled to France from Francavilla Fontana,Brindisi because of the fascist Italian government. As a young boy, Emanuel Ungaro took to sewing like his father, Cosimo.

At the age of 22, he moved to Paris and three years later, he began designing for the House of Cristobal Balenciaga for three years before quitting to work for Courrèges. Four years later, in 1965 with the assistance of Swiss artist Sonja Knapp, Emanuel Ungaro opened his own fashion house in Paris.

In 1968, he created his first pret-a-porter collection, Parallèle and opened a boutique at 2, avenue Montaigne in Paris. During the next 30 years, the Emanuel Ungaro House expanded to include boutiques and licensing agreements worldwide.

This week, we are so very proud to able to offer 3 of his vintage dresses in our store! All 3 are exquisite examples of 80s style, Parisian quality, and Italian design!

Our first is this STUNNING Silk Asian Avant-Garde Ruched Mini Dress:

Next is this EXQUISITE Silk Cummerbund Waist Yellow Floral Mini Dress:

And last, but not least, is this Bright Floral Ruched Piping Rose Mini Dress:
