Fashion & Beauty Week: FBW 2013 Designer BCBG

The 6th designer that will be seen on the FBW 2013 runway is BCBG!


BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP was founded in 1989 by Designer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Max Azria. In 1981, after 11 years of designing a line of women’s wear in his native Paris, Azria

moved to the United States and launched Jess, a series of new-concept retail boutiques that offered

hip French fashion to American women. After years of success, Azria decided to pursue his dream

of launching a design house that spoke to the modern woman, thus, BCBGMAXAZRIA was born.

Named for the French phrase “bon chic, bon genre” (a Parisian slang meaning “good style, good

attitude”), the brand embodies a true combination of European sophistication and American spirit.

In 1991, Luboy Azria, Chief Creative Officer of BCBGMAXAZRIA and Max’s wife, joined the company

as a designer and became the Creative Director in 1996. Currently, BCBG is recognized as one of

America’s leading design houses with collections that include evening dresses, denim, outerwear,

footwear, swimwear, handbags and small leather goods. Celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Rachel

Bilson, Eva Mendes list BCBGMAXAZRIA and Max Azria as staple items in their wardrobes.

Since the company’s start, Max and Lubov Azria have succeeded in building an impressive portfolio

of twenty-two brands including: BCBGMAXAZRIA, BCBGMAXAZRIA Runway, Max Azria, Max Azria

Atelier, Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Hervé Léger Couture, BCBGeneration, Max and Cleo, Lola, Miley

Cyrus & Max Azria, BCBGirls, BCBG//Attitude, To The Max, Tex by Max Azria, Manoukian, Street Beat,

Parallel, Maxime, Noun, Don Algod, Dorothée Bis and Dorotennis. With these brands, they have evolved
