About the designer
From the time it was founded in 1925 until today, the Fendi house is known for its outstanding designs and glamourous Italian fashion. Adele Casagrande opened a fur and leather goods shop in Rome, which she later named after her husband Edoardo Fendi. As soon as they were old enough, the Fendis five daughters joined the company and contributed to the success of the house.
In 1965, Karl Lagerfeld joined as Creative Director and in 1994 Silvia Venturini Fendi, granddaughter of Adele and Edoardo, became Creative Director for Accessories and Men’s lines.
