Chloé founder Gaby Aghion to receive Legion of Honour

Dec '13
Gaby Aghion, the founder of celebrated French fashion house Chloé, is soon to be awarded with the Legion of Honour medal, the highest order that an individual in France could receive.
 
The Egypt-born 92-year-old design veteran, who is been largely credited for introducing ready-to-wear fashion and coining the phrase prêt-a-porter, will be awarded for her contribution to the country’s fashion industry.
 
The designer, with her business partner Jacques Lenoir, established the Chloé label in 1952. Known for lightweight fabrics and diaphanous silhouettes, the brand soon became the most sought after option among fashion lovers who wanted an alternative to restrictive formal couture styles, dominant in those days.
 
After Aghion’s departure from the house in 1985, the Parisian label was later helmed by big names like Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney and Pheobe Philo.
 
Currently owned by Swiss luxury group Richemont, the brand’s present creative director is British designer Clare Waight Keller. 
 
Chloé recently commemorated its 58th anniversary with spectacular showcases at the Palais de Tokyo, Paris, and Selfridges, London.
 
Started by Napoleon Bonaparte in 1802, Legion of Honour decoration was earlier received by the likes of Anna Wintour, Azzedine Alaïa, Cecil Beaton and Valentino Garavani.
 
The medal will be given to Aghion by the French Culture and Communications Minister Aurélie Filippetti at a special ceremony on December 17, 2013.
