Overview

Gianfranco Ferré, labeled the “architect of fashion,” earned his title for his signature elegant designs, and structured silhouettes. His sharply tailored dresses dating from his first women’s collection in 1982, lent him a royal following -- not only amongst the likes of Diana Princess of Wales or the Queen of Jordan but celebrity royalty such as Sharon Stone and Elizabeth Taylor. His work was inspired by his travels to Asia, inspiring his fusion East-meets-West signature: defined by layered collars, cuffs, and ruffles.
