The birth her daughter, Violet, spurred an incredible era of creative energy for Nanette Lepore. She staged her first runway show at Bryant Park and soon after opened shops in Soho and Tokyo all within the first few years of Violet’s life. And Violet’s been there with her along the way — walking out with her mom to take a bow at every Nanette Lepore runway show ever to take place. Today, Violet’s role in the brand is growing. She’s gone from a mother’s muse to the face of a brand. In Spring 2015, Violet closed the show with a cool panache well beyond her sixteen years. She followed it up with another stellar runway showing at our Fall 2015 event. And finally, this summer she staged her first photo shoot — channeling Irish suffragette rebel and writer, Maud Gonne for our Resort 2016 collection. In addition to becoming an icon in her own right, Violet’s effortless flair and youthful joie de vivre have lit the brand anew. Now, if she’ll only stop sending selfies to her friends and pay attention to her family at the dinner table, oh, imagine the places she’ll go.
