2014 marks the 30 year anniversary of Fifi Chachnil Paris and to celebrate this milestone Fifi will be presenting her AW14 ready-to-wear collection at London Fashion Week.
The collection will be on show in the Somerset House Showrooms from February 14th to February 18th.
Fifi Chachnil loves femininity and for three decades has designed for and been inspired by ‘toutes les filles’. From her atelier in Paris and showroom in London she works with a comprehensive view to reassure and introduce woman to a world of sensual and frivolous beauty. Her creations are sentimental and often represent the fantastical caricature of the Parisian women.
In 1984 Fifi launched her first collection under the name Chachnil. A
collection of ready-to-wear garments that brought an element of theatre and sparkle to clothing at a time when the black deconstructed style of Japanese designers were â la mode. She produced skating outfits, ruffled bloomers and cowgirl suits worn by musicians, artists and the Parisian elite on and off the stage.
It was during this time that she established a penchant for showing her collections in quintessentially Parisian venues. Venues which include the second floor of the Eiffel Tower, Le Lido on the Champs Elysee and Le Crazy Horse Paris. During 1996 after an inspiring trip to Los Angeles, Fifi pursued her love of designing lingerie and launched the house of Fifi Chachnil. In the United Kingdom Fifi Chachnil lingerie was sold exclusively at Agent Provocateur from 1996 to 2008.
Today Fifi presents collections of ready-to-wear, lingerie, swimwear,
accessories and fragrance. Here we share with you exclusive images from the Fifi Chachnil collection photographed by Mademoiselle Fifi herself.
