Vanessa Seward was born in Buenos Aires and grew up in London and Paris. After training at the Studio Berçot,
she worked with Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel for nine years and then with Tom Ford at Yves Saint Laurent. She
then joined Loris Azzaro in 2002 and succeeded him when he passed away in 2003. Hailed by the press and
buyers worldwide for her audacity and creativity, she dressed many celebrities, including Natalie Portman,
Nicole Kidman, Kristen Stewart and Michelle Williams. In 2011, she left Azzaro to spread her wings and work
under her own name. She has been collaborating with the A.P.C. ready-to-wear brand since 2012, designing a
capsule collection each season. On the silver screen, she created costumes for Valérie Lemercier, Aurore
Clément and Fanny Ardant, and dressed the cast of the Les Parapluies de Cherbourg musical at the Théâtre du
Châtelet. Supported by A.P.C., Vanessa Seward launched her own brand in 2014 and presented her first
collection for Fall/Winter 2015. It was an instant hit with the press and customers.

In 2015, two Vanessa Seward boutiques opened in Paris,
one in the 1st arrondissement at 10, rue d’Alger and the other in the 3rd arrondissement at 7, boulevard des
Filles du Calvaire, along with the online shop vanessaseward.com. Her first American boutique opened its doors
in July 2016 at 8407 Melrose Place, Los Angeles, CA, 90069. Another Parisian shop opened in 2016, this time
on the Left Bank of Paris, 171, boulevard Saint Germain in the 6th arrondissement and will be followed by a
London boutique early January 2017. All of the Vanessa Seward boutiques were designed by architect Laurent
