Designer Moment: Guy Laroche
Guy Laroche (1923-1989) began as a milliner, first working in Paris, then in New York. He returned to Paris in 1949 and worked as an assistant at Jean Desses for about eight years. In 1957, he opened his own couture house, with the first show being staged in his own apartment. In 1960 he added a ready-to-wear boutique label. Laroche was known as a masterful cutter and tailor.
