A loved icon of Parisian Society and it's fashion. Madame Nina Ricci was in fact born in Turin, Italy in January 1883. Her family moved to France when she just 12 years old in 1895. By the tender age of 13, Maria Nielli (nicknamed, Nina) was already working as an apprentice to a dressmaker, becoming it's Chief Designer at just 22. In 1904 she became Madame Ricci when she married a jeweller named Luigi Ricci, and in 1905 they had a son named Robert.
Robert Ricci, her only son and a visionary advertising executive convinced his mother to create a couture house in her name, and so in 1932 it opened on Rue des Capucines, in Paris. Nina Ricci created the garments and Robert ran the business. The House of Nina Ricci grew phenomenally throughout the thirties and their one-room maison de couture soon became 11 floors in 3 buildings, operations developed by WWII to include leather goods and fashion accessories. Scarves, glasses and jewellery from that era are highly collectible.
