The story of the House Emanuel Ungaro begins in 1965 with his founder Emanuel Ungaro who bolstered by his exceptional creative talent, moved to Paris at the age of 22 and started his apprenticeship alongside the Spanish designer, Cristobal Balenciaga. This period taught him the rigor and perfectionism essential when founding his own label.
In 1965, Emanuel Ungaro decided to launch his own fashion house so that he could create feminine looks that were not only elegant, but also audacious and provocative.
Season after season, Emanuel Ungaro dared to be different, combining unexpected yet sensual clashes of bright colors and prints with beautiful draping. Located on the Avenue Montaigne in the heart of Paris’s couture fashion district, since 1967, the House of Emanuel Ungaro has acquired international fame with its unquestioning femininity, purity of silhouette, flamboyant prints and exquisite attention to detail and color.
Until his departure in 2004 from the House he founded, Mr. Emanuel Ungaro has continuously driven the house forward every season with each new collection, by anticipating trends and reminding women of their power of seduction via his richly embellished designs.
Today, the brand is present in all international markets through its ready-to-wear and accessories collections for women and men as well as its fragrances. The first fragrance “Diva” was launched in 1983 and was followed by other successful fragrances.
The new Creative Director of the Emanuel Ungaro brand, the Italian designer Fausto Puglisi, presented his first collections for Autumn/Winter 2013 and Spring/Summer 2014 during Paris Fashion Weeks in March and September 2013.
