Vanessa Bruno is a Parisian designer, who was destined to be in the fashion industry. She grew up in a fashion-devoted family; her Italian father founded the French fashion house Emmanuelle Khan and her mother was a Danish supermodel in the 1960s.

It was as a model that Vanessa Bruno became exposed to the fashion industry, when she was 15 years old. Alongside with her modelling career she worked as a singer and an actress. After becoming familiar with photo shoots and runway shows, the French beauty favoured a change of scenery: fashion design. She uncovered a passion for all things couture and eventually decided to give up modeling to persue a career in design.

Vanessa Bruno went to Montreal where she discovered clothing. After her return to Paris, she made her first steps into designing alongside Dorothée Bis, the Paris based ready-to-wear fashion house. Micheal Klein, founder of the successful MK line, then opened the doors of his atelier to the young aspiring designer. Athe is the second line of Vanessa Bruno and is more affortable than the first line. Her creations are bohemien, feminin and romantic and very wearable at the same time.
