Schiaparelli has been awarded with the official Haute Couture label by the French Ministry of Industry and the French Couture Federation. Celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, the house of Schiaparelli – created in 1927 by Elsa Schiaparelli – recovers the official Haute Couture label that had disappeared when its namesake founder decided to close her couture house in 1954 in order to write her autobiography Shocking Life.
Schiaparelli has been back to 21 place Vendôme since it re-opened, the very place where Elsa Schiaparelli had left it. Today Schiaparelli’s unique spirit of Haute Couture merging art, innovation, craftsmanship, quality and audacity enters a new chapter of its story.
