Celine was founded by Céline Vipiana and her husband Richard in 1945 as a made-to-measure children’s shoe boutique. In 1961 she showed her first prêt-à-porter collection with the goal to deliver fashion to the everyday woman. Since 1996, the brand has been owned by LVMH group. And in 2009 Pheobe Philo picked the reins and maked it relevant through her incredibly chic and minimalist. Now on day, the fashion brand is leader by Heidi Slimane, the former Saint Laurent creative director.
