Anne Fogarty Label Revival

Posted by Beni Schaub at 4:36 PM
Today Anne Fogarty, Inc. announces the relaunch of the Anne Fogarty label. Five dresses, designed and hand crafted in Italy, are being offered through a Kickstarter campaign and will be available for order throughout the month of June. The five new designs are a preview of things to come when a full Spring / Summer 2015 collection will be presented in New York this September.

The project to re-launch the Anne Fogarty label is the brainchild of husband and wife team Greg Halvorsen and Ivana Lo Stimolo. "We felt that such an important designer as Anne could not be left off the list of prestigious heritage fashion brands currently in the market" stated Ivana. "We feel that her classic and timeless designs still resonate greatly with women today and we have done everything to make sure her legacy lives on in this new collection" she added.

The five dresses currently being offered include a red pleated cocktail dress, a white cotton print, a gold lurex dress with matching sash, a floral dress and a beige polka dot sheath dress with matching swing jacket. All five are the creations of Italian designer Silvia Gammaitoni and are hand crafted in Italy using only the finest Italian fabrics.

Anne's strict adherence to high quality materials, attention to detail and well tailored fit are reflected in every dress.
