TONY MIRANDA from Portugal Saturday 24 November 2018 at Citywalk 10:00 PM
The Career of this fashion designer emerges in Paris when, with the age 18, he went to the house of Joseph Camps, considered one of the greatest masters of French Haute Couture, having gone through this workshop young artists who later became obligatory references of European Haute Couture, among them Emanuel Ungaro, Francesco Smalto, Dominique Rousseau, Claude Rousseau, Henry Hurbain and Benuchi. The latter worked with Tony Miranda on the same cutting table.
In 1967 comes the big opportunity, entering the house Ted Lapidus, where after two years he ascends to the position of director of the creative area and modeling. In the next 10 years, he was responsible for the famous ‘griffe’ Lapidus.
It was during 1979 that he decided to open his own Atelier of Haute Couture in the 61 bis, Suffren Avenue, one of the most elegant areas of Paris and having later opened the boutique Tony Miranda in 5 Rue Cambom. This was the moment that his name was projected in the ‘Homeland of Fashion’ and as well in other countries, wearing prominent personalities in the politics, finance, aristocracy, society and entertainment world, among which we can point out names such as Shah of Persia Mohammad Reza Pahlevi, Prince Saud al Faisal and Prince Turki, Kamal Adham, Mardam Zuer, President Omar Bongo and Madam Edit Bongo, Félix Houphouët-Boigny, Togo President General Étienne Eyadéma, Charles Aznavour, Jacques Brel, Brigitte Bardot, Sylvie Vartan and Brigitte Fausset among others.
