THE MAN BEHIND ROCHAS FASHION
About a half century separate Marco Zanini from the creator and founder of the House, Marcel Rochas. Born in 1971, Marco Zanini graduated from the Fine Arts Academy of Milan in 1995. After having been Assistant at Dolce Gabbana for their ready-to-wear line, he became Donatella Versace’s right arm. He then relaunched the American brand of Halston and created quite a stir in the fashion world. Rochas conferred the responsibility of its ready-to-wear collections upon him in 2009. His ambition to build “brick by brick” and season after season the foundations of a renewed House of Rochas, his insistence on making each new collection “unpredictable,” confirm the renaissance of Rochas in fashion.
