About the designer
The French fashion house Chloé was founded in 1952 by the Egyptian Gaby Aghion, who named it after a friend. Wanting to disassociate from fifties couture, she was among the first to introduce prêt-à-porter fashion at the time. In 1952, the house held its first show in a café in Paris. It was, and still is to this day, known to create feminine and most importantly wearable designs in high quality fabrics. After Aghion passed her creative leadership on to Gerard Pipart, Chloé has been home to many other great designers including Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney. Currently running the house as creative director is French designer Natacha Ramsay-Levi.
