The interaction of experience in Haute Couture with intelligent designs and High Tech are characteristic of ANIKO Smart Couture´s collections.
ANIKO´s work was shaped by the Golden Age of Parisian Haute Couture Houses. She has always felt this way as a real European with several cultures background. Living in between Vienna, Budapest and Paris.
During her studies in Paris, she worked in the famous Parisian Couture Houses and at the fabulous Fashion Shows in the Louvre. It was the Golden Age of Karl Lagerfeld, his muse Ines de la Fressange, and many more.
She was specially impressed by the collections of Azzedine Alaia and Claude Montana in her first years as a young designer. She came top in the masterclass led by Franck Sorbier, which landed her first job at the design studio of Christian Dior´s. As a designer, she has always doubted the wearability of Haute Couture and their dusty image.
After her years in Paris, Aniko moved back to Vienna where she developed her own way of Haute Couture.
ANIKO Smart Couture is the result of this development: intelligent designs, fabrics mostly conceived and designed by ANIKO, the art of Couture and the possibilities of High Tech. For ANIKO, this is the path to the 21st century Haute Couture.
” I dress real women – any shape and size! ” is ANIKO´s mission. It´s the modular way of design that makes this aim possible. Any piece can take the perfect fit and desired style.
ANIKO Smart Couture is turning every woman into a unique, perfectly stylish and admirable person.
