Isabel Marant was born in 1967 to a French father and a German mother, who was first a model, before managing the Elite modeling agency. Isabel studied at Studio Berçot, which gave her the chance to work alongside Michel Klein, before designing collections for Yorke & Cole with Bridget Yorke. She opened a jewelry workshop in 1989 in Paris, which led some 5 years later to the creation of her first brand called Twen. Isabel Marant started designing a minimal and upmarket ready-to-wear range.
In 1998, the first boutique bearing her name was opened and she launched her 'Etoile' line 2 years later.

Today, the label symbolizes the mix of genres and its collections represent the perfect symbiosis between a boho chic, edgy rock attitude, femininity, and a touch of exoticism. Always in touch with the fashion scene, she designed a range for H&M in 2013.
Today she creates ready-to-wear collections as well as leather goods, shoes and jewelry. Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen are just two of her muses.
