The house of Marni is the birthright of Consuela Castiglioni. She is one of the IT designers today, and her label is quickly becoming a favorite among the fashion savvy. Consuela was born in 1954. This Switzerland born fashionista found her mark when she married Gianni Castiglioni at the age of 25. He was then the head of Giwi Furs, which soon became part of the exquisite Italian fashion house of Fendi. It was not long after the birth of her two children that Consuela became the fashion consultant for the Castiglioni functions at Fendi. The fur establishment itself was started by her husband’s father in 1970, and eased into a ready-to wear market by Gianni in 1995. It was in the following season that Consuela launched the Marni line with her own designs. This debut collection was an exquisite celebration of Italy’s finest leather. In 2000, she opened her first showroom in London and won the UK ladies over in spades.
