Isabel Marant

The queen of Parisian cool, Isabel Marant began her distinguished fashion career selling her designs in Les Halles, Paris, before honing her talents at the prestigious Studio Berçot fashion school. She went on to intern with designer Michel Klein, before assisting on projects for Chloé and Yohji Yamamoto. Marant launched her own collection in 1989 – first a jewellery and accessories line, swiftly followed by knitwear. In 1994 she opened her studio in the Marais district of Paris, creating her own clothing brand for the style-conscious woman. Her popularity has grown in recent years, and she is now recognised as one of fashion’s best-kept secrets. Celebrity fans such as Sienna Miller and Kate Moss, with their sought after laid-back style, have made Isabel Marant a must-have in their wardrobe.
