Martine Sitbon (1951)

The French designer launched her eponymous brand in 1985 for which she constructed a chic, romantic yet rock style, she named “rock'n'romantic”. A traveller, she mixes various cultures giving birth to audaciously cut and poetic garments, often using her trademark velvet material. From 1987 to 1992, she designed for the house Chloe and launched a new label, in 2004, entitled Rue du Mail.
