The brand was started in late 2015 by architectural and fashion designer Vicken Derderian after
leaving his position on the BCBG Runway Design team. In 2016, he decided to collaborate with
former Academy of Art University Graduate School classmate and BCBG coworker Kyung Hwa
Kim. The brand creates luxury based clothing using high standards of construction and blending old and new world techniques. The brand’s design mantra is “Our fashion is a more intimate architecture of the body”.
At Oriflame Fashion Weekend 2017 Vicken Derderian is presenting a collection that initially is about women in flight. The designers did not want the collection to just portray literal elements of flight, they wanted to inspire and be inspired by women who break the proverbial “glass ceiling.”
