Claude Montana is a French fashion designer who began his career in the 60s but his style really takes off in the 80s years of the "Palace" generation (the new Palace inaugurated in 1978 by Grace Jones and her resumption of life in pink will become a form of anthem of the Palace, the waiters are dressed by Mugler and becomes a high place of the Parisian party and symbol of all the extravagances, "from the hybridization of punk and disco, from street kids to the most flamboyant stars, underground and freedom" Many designers such as Kenzo, Karl Lagerfield and Claude Montana organize fashion shows, this place saw the birth of this generation"
Claude Montana is during this time a central figure of ready-to-wear fashion with architectural and imposing shapes, oversized shoulders, thin waists, his silhouettes display a strong, modern and domineering woman. His style appeals to wealthy and socially wealthy women, with a thirst for complex construction and a quality close to that of couture (he was often nicknamed the "king of shoulder pads")
Lanvin asked him in 1989 to awaken its collections. The success is dazzling and he obtains two Golden Dices back-to-back in 1991 and 92.
Claude Montana is bouncing back as a crucial reference point for connoisseurs with his influence and his fantastic and futuristic silhouettes. He made them for women who exuded an aura of strength and power.

Four Parisian designers defined one of the most fashionable decades in history: Jean Paul Gaultier, Azzedine Alaia, Thierry Mugler and Claude Montana.
