Emanuelle Khanh & Quasar Khanh
France Luxury Group
In 1972,Emmanuelle Khanh founded her own house with her husband, designer Quasar Khanh. She innovated with revolutionary materials that had never been used in the fashion world, such as denim and plastic. She also established her true signature with her major theme: embroidery. Chenille knit would also become her trademark.
Emmanuelle Khanh then turned to eyewear and launched a true revolution on the optical market by transforming an essential object into a fashion accessory. This boosted the success and popularity of the brand, which sold over eight million pairs of glasses throughout the world.
She positioned herself definitively as an indispensable creator of French fashion with an extremely feminine style inspired by the 1950s. This appealed to a demanding clientele in search of elegance and modernity. Her womens suit with its impeccable cut made her a household name. This renown also allowed her to enter the mens Ready-to-Wear world in early 2000.
Emmanuelle Khanh was acquired by France Luxury Group in 1995. Its fusion with Alliance Designers in 2002 allowed the brand to reinforce its expansion in France and abroad, while showcasing its original values.
She became famous for her long droopy collars on jackets, dresses and blouses, highly cut armholes, low-slung skirts; tiny round collars on blouses; short frilly skirts; linen outfits with lace trimming and embroidered blouses.
