Inspiration: Margherita Missoni


Yesterday I wrote about the Missoni for Target line but today I wanna focus in on the brand's most known family member.  Missoni was started by Margherita's grandparents in Italy in 1953.  The brand has always been known for it's patterns and bright colors, something it's certainly kept true to for well over 50 years.

The whole family has been a part of the Missoni business, and the most notable member right now is Margherita.  She's currently in all the ad campaigns and is now designing for the classic Italian label.  I love her because she's educated (she went to Columbia), natural, has never had a fashion f-up, family oriented, and she's basically normal.  Vogue did an excellent article on her awhile back, which is where I really began to take an interest in her. 


I seriously admire Margherita Missoni, she is an incredibly smart woman who has been an excellent ambassador and face to her family's brand.  She's gorg, knows how to work a photo shoot and runway, and, as an heiress, is always in the spotlight for the right reasons.

Here are some interviews with Margherita and her family!
