The Belgian designer is relaunching her brand in partnership with Italian clothing manufacturer Gibò, starting with a spring 2013 women’s ready-to-wear catwalk show during Paris Fashion Week in September.
Branquinho was forced to shutter her women’s and men’s lines at the height of the global economic crisis in 2009. Working with partner Gibò opens new opportunities: “Before, I had an independent company. I was responsible for everything. In this new situation, it feels so comfortable, because I’m only busy with the creative part.”
Branquinho burst onto the international fashion scene in the late Nineties alongside a pack of other Belgian talents, including Raf Simons, Olivier Theyskens and A.F. Vandevorst. Happy to see her back in the fashion scene and looking forward to her first comeback collection!
