Chiara Boni : Very featured Italian Fashion designer
Chiara Boni arrived in London in 1967 wearing a cashmere twin-set, an Hermès scarf and a Gucci bag: she left a few months later only wearing the "Way In" Swinging London gear.
She then started her innovative collection “You Tarzan me Jane”, a rebellious, young reply to the formal Italian fashion of those times.
Actual fashion schools did not exist at that time. She became a designer through her own passion and natural talent helped by the inspiration she got by going to the Ateliers of Balenciaga and Givenchy in Paris where her mother, a very chic lady, used to dress. There she very naturally learned the secrets of the female body. This stimulated her to design elegant and sexy shapes that would always enhance the beauty of a woman.
Her figure transforming dresses have created a cult following of women, from celebrities to television anchor personalities, to today’s leading professionals and stay at home women.
In 2015, “Chiara Boni La Petite Robe” made its debut at New York Fashion Week, and from then on the collection has been shown on the notorious NY catwalks twice a year.
