The French fashion house Chloe was founded by Gabrielle Aghion, a French fashion designer. She is said to have coined the phrase “prêt-à-porter” (ready-to-wear). Rather than labeling the line under her own name she chose the brand name Chloe, after a friend. She also had a unique eye for talent; Karl Lagerfeld was the main designer for 20 years before moving to Chanel. Next was new designer Stella McCartney who was followed in 2001 by Phoebe Philo who loved accessories and the first IT bag Paddington was born.
