Nina Ricci

A skilled dressmaker, Nina Ricci worked at various design houses before opening her own couture house at the age of 50 in 1932. She is best known for her understated yet elegant pieces her techniques consisted of draping fabric over her customers bodies to accentuate their best attributes.  Ricci retired from designing in the early 1950s when she was in her 70’s and Jules Francois Crahay was made the head designer for the label in 1954. When he left to go to Lanvin in 1963, he was soon replaced by Gerard Pipart, who designed the collection until 1998 when the company was sold. Today Nina Ricci's label maintains its reputation for classic designs.
