Made in Italy
"Franco Moschino, (1950-1994) fashion rebel’s wacky, imaginative and irreverent designer never failed to entertain – or occasionally ruffle the legal feathers of established fashion houses.
Born near Milan in 1950, he studied art then began his career in 1971 as a sketcher for Giorgio Armani, drawing publicity campaigns for the various Italian ready-to-wear houses Armani designed for at the time – including Beged-Or and Genny. After a stint with Cadette and some freelance design work for Italian ready-to-wear companies, Moschino launched his own company, Moonshadow S.p.A., in 1983 with his Moschino Collection.
By the time he showed his second collection, he was internationally known for his provocative and irreverent styles. He parodied the glamour and sophistication of other designers, making jest of their high prices and trademarks. His disrepect for the established fashion business led to several copyright infringement battles with other fashion houses, including Louis Vuitton and Chanel. Although Moschino was always ready to shock with an outrageous idea, his clothes were wearable and cut to the highest standards — thanks to his expertise as a tailor." - Vintage Fashion Guild
