History of Womens Catherine Malandrino Shoes
Catherine Malandrino served her fashion apprenticeship in her home country of France, eventually becoming creative director for the Et Vous label in Paris and helping to dramatically revitalise the fortunes of the company. She later moved to New York and launched her own self-named fashion brand in 1998. Malandrino soon became known as “The Ultimate Frenchwoman in America”, designing acclaimed clothing ranges which fused her passions for both French and American styles and culture. Following the 9/11 attacks when the country was in mourning, a dress from Malandrino’s famous ‘Flag Collection’ became embraced as the symbol of hope for the strength and femininity of American women. The dress was worn by a long list of iconic names including Madonna, Meryl Streep and Mary J. Blige. Still gathering global acclaim today for her dual ranges of high-end runway clothing and contemporary clothes, accessories and shoes for women, the multi-award-winning Catherine Malandrino also makes regular appearances on TV as a celebrity guest judge.
