Moschino: what brand is it? A long time ago …
The Moschino brand was founded in 1983 in Milan. The founder of the Italian fashion house was Franco Moschino, whose name gave rise to the brand itself. The brand was immediately successful thanks to its innovative, colorful and slightly eccentric designs. The figure of Franco was not without significance. The dynamic entrepreneur was quite critical of the fashion industry and took part in numerous social outreach events in the early 1990s. After his death, his assistant Rossella Jardini becomes the creative director of the brand, followed by Jeremy Scott. Moschino is currently owned by Moschino SpA, a company taken over by Aeffe SpA and Sportswear International SpA
