The History of Chloé

The Maison Chloé started in 1952 when Gaby Aghion created his first pret-à-porter collection. It was one of the first luxury tailor shops to have clothes ready to buy, as opposed to just available to order.

The “Chloé woman” walked away from the rigid formality of the haute couture. Women were offered a wardrobe that was elegant, sophisticated, and highly refined, but also modern and defined by casual lines, high quality materials, and refined details.
Madam Gaby did her first Chloé runway show in 1958 at the Café de Flore in Paris --a place famous for being a meeting point for artists-- starting a series of renowned and luxurious fashion shows.

The Maison began to attract creative and innovative souls, leading the way to artists, creative directors and brilliant collaborators that shaped the identity of Chloé in the years to follow.
