The Moschino brand was originally created in 1983 by the late Franco Moschino (1950 - 1994). Moschino and his fashion label became famous for his very innovative, colourful ~ and sometimes eccentric ~ designs, and for his criticisms of the fashion industry and his social awareness campaigns in the early 1990s.
Moschino has come to occupy an important position on the international fashion stage. The Moschino, Moschino Cheap and Chic, and Love Moschino creations make their mark by expressing a creativity which make ironic and elegant statements through the reinterpretation of the classics.
Rossella Jardini has been Moschino’s Creative Director since 1994. Responsible for the brand image and style, Jardini fulfils the role of “creative witness”, keeping the stylistic and philosophical approach alive following the death of Franco Moschino in 1994.
Moschino has become highly respected and adored ~ and although their designs have become synonymous with fun, frivolity and drama, Rossella Jardini says that their pieces have more to do with beauty above all else. "It is not as important that someone recognises it's a Moschino design, I want people to notice the person wearing my clothing and think they look beautiful first."
From its humble beginnings with Franco Moschino at the helm, and to the present day, Moschino’s whimsical collections are a testament to the designer's unique, often eclectic, vision, and one which captures the imagination and free spirit by all that wear and love Moschino.
Beautiful vintage pieces by Moschino have now become very sought after ~ and this red riding jacket is a real beauty!!!
