BrusselsLife with Fabienne Delvigne
After her marketing studies at the EPHEC, Fabienne Delvigne embarks upon the launching of " Fabienne Delvigne créations " in 1987. Then follow much collaboration with prestigious couture houses such as Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint-Laurent, Louis Féraud or even the Belgian Natan.
Belgian Court's appointment
Fabienne Delvigne's popularity is due above all to the interest given to her creations by several crowned heads. Queen Paola of Belgium makes her her favourite milliner and does not hesitate to recommend her in other lands. Queen Sylvia of Sweden and her daughter, Princess Victoria, thus, are won over by the novelty and the quality of the creations of the Belgian milliner. In November 2001, her flawless collaboration with the Belgian Court allows the creator to gain access to the much appreciated and sought after rank of Fournisseur Breveté (by the Belgian Court's appointment). But Fabienne Delvigne's talents are not only limited to hats as she creates also jewellery, in fact for Natan's.Stéphanie Guillaume
