Marni Fashion Another Look



Hope everyone is having a great  weekend so far?   Looking for some inspiration for winter I came across some pretty cool fashion from Marnie. Designer Conseulo Castiglioni,  adds chic leather and  fur accessory to her designs to create the perfect fashion statement. The story of how it started  and runway video below.                


The fashion line started in 1994, when Castiglioni became known for her contributions to the design of fur,stemming from her husband's family fur business. At that moment, fur was at its most unpopular and typically designed in an old-fashioned manner, but Castiglioni instead treated it as a normal fabric to make modern, wearable clothing. Her fashion line, which is named after her sister Marni, grew as her customers needed something to wear under or with their fur.
Today, the company produces a full array of ready-to-wear clothing, handbags, jewelry, and eyewear. Marni has recently changed from "a well-kept secret among like-minded aesthetes to a label followed for its own sake." Jenna Lyons, senior vice president of women's design for J.Crew, attributes Marni's rise to the "post-Tom Ford era," saying that women are lately being bold through colorprint, and shape rather than through overt sex appeal and are dressing more for other women than for men.
