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 its 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 stylists such as Kenzo, Karl Lagerfield and Claude Montana organize fashion challenges, this place was born this generation"
Claude Montana is during this period a central figure of the fashion of ready to wear with architectural and imposing forms, oversized shoulders, thin sizes, his silhouettes display a strong, modern and domineering woman. His style seduced wealthy and socially rich women, with a thirst for complex construction and a quality close to that of sewing (he was often nicknamed the "king of epaulettes")
Lanvin asked him in 1989 to wake up its collections. The success is dazzling and he obtains two Golden Dice blow after blow 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.
