Luisa Beccaria launched her line of sweet, ruffled cocktail dresses in 1979, sticking to ultra feminine cuts in soft textures. In 1984, Luisa Beccaria opened her first retail shop on via Madonnina, quickly followed by another one for her childrenswear designs.
In 1991 she opened the present Luisa Beccaria store and showroom located in the Brera district.
The label did a brief stint in the couture world, showing in Paris between 1993 and 1995, but ultimately returned to ready-to-wear in Milan.
Since 1996 Luisa Beccaria prï¿½t-a-porter has been presented during ï¿½Milano Collezioniï¿½, selling to top stores in the U.S., including ï¿½ in New York- Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, Linda Dresner and Jeffrey.
In the U.K. Browns, Selfridges, The Cross and Mimi and worldwide, stores in Germany, Spain, Australia and Asia as well as www.netaporter.com.
Ignoring trends and sticking to her signature flouncy dresses in frothy tiers and floral prints, Beccariaï¿½s designs remain constant in their romantic vision for women.
