About the Brand
The Vanessa Bruno brand was founded in 1992. Her creations were sold primarily at Le Bon Marché, Paris’ temple of good taste. Her talent quickly brought her great success. She opened her first boutique in Paris in 1998. However, paradoxically, it was in Japan that the brand had its initial phenomenal success. The Japanese were in awe of her neat and minimal creations. From Vanessa Paradis to Charlotte Gainsbourg, the celebrities quickly adopted the brand. Vanessa Bruno became unavoidable. Her collaboration with popular companies such as La Redoute made her vey well-known by the general public.
Vanessa Bruno has always been part of the fashion world. Her mother was a supermodel and shared this passion with her ever since she was a little girl.This was to remain a source of inspiration for the designer. After starting out in modeling at the age of 15, Vanessa Bruno left for Montreal where she moved into creation. Back in Paris she learned alongside Michel Klein and Dorothée Bis. In 1992, she decided to branch out on her own and launched her self-titled brand. The feminine and refined style of Vanessa Bruno appeals to women of all ages.
