Moschino is an Italian luxury fashion house, specialised in ready-to-wear, leather and fashion accessories, shoes, luggage, and perfume.
The brand was founded in 1983 by Franco Moschino (1950–1994). Moschino and his fashion label became famous for his innovative, colourful, sometimes eccentric, designs, for his criticisms of the fashion industry and for his social awareness campaigns in the early 1990s. After Moschino's untimely death, Rossella Jardini, his former assistant, became creative director. The brand has been part of the Aeffe fashion group since 1999.
Rossella Jardini was Moschino’s creative director from 1994 to October 2013. Responsible for the brand image and style, Jardini fulfils the role of “creative witness,” keeping Moschino’s stylistic and philosophical approach alive.
The brand consists of several labels: Moschino (women's and men's main line), Moschino Cheap and Chic (women's secondary line, created in 1988), Love Moschino (women's and men's diffusion line, known as Moschino Jeans from 1986 to 2008), in order of exclusivity. In addition, accessories, jewelry, watches, perfume and cosmetics, and even jet helmets are sold under the Moschino brand.
