To enhance the Tribute to Schiap project conducted at Parsons Paris with the sophomores, Delphine Bellini, Adjunct CEO of Maison Schiaparelli, and Franck Sagne, Marketing Director of the company, welcomed fashion design students in the historical headquarters, located on 21 Place Vendôme, where Elsa Schiaparelli herself used to create and produce her Haute Couture collections.
The talk by Delphine Bellini addressed several aspects of Schiaparelli’s work, from her connections with avant-garde artists to her experimental practices and business strategies. The current evolution of the brand has also been analyzed, as well as the recent collections designed by Creative Director Bertrand Guyon.
After the discussion with Delphine Bellini and Franck Sagne, students visited the private Salons of Schiaparelli and had privileged access to the latest Haute Couture pieces and high-end Prêt-à-Porter collection.
