Designer Mariuccia Mandelli borrowed the name Krizia from the title of Plato's unfinished dialogue on women's vanity to market her designs by. Born in 1933, she began designing dresses for her dolls at age 8. The designer's collections have gone through many top stylists and have recently returned to their original stylized roots. The current prêt-à-porter line emphasizes the use of black and dove grey, mixed with animal prints; it's dramatic, yet classy: wearing Krizia
will get you noticed.
