Veronique Branquinho was born in 1973 in Antwerp, Belgium. She studied fashion design at the Flanders Fashion Institute in Antwerp. Branquinho has her showroom based in Antwerp but shows her collections in Paris. In 1999-2000, she designed for the prestigious Italian house of Ruffo Research. She is the Queen of the pleated skirt and the granny-girl blouse and designs wearable focused clothes. This golden shimmering blouse with cream pants is from her Spring 2002 collection. In this collection, she included acid-washed jeans paired with a sharp jacket, and glittering white pumps. A parka was given an original twist thanks to a tunnel belt and drawstring hem. Using very little embellishment, the clothes spoke for themselves, relying on masterful cutting techniques for the total look and feel. Veronique Branquinho is one of those rare talents who can make the quietest statements speak volumes.Her focus is on making clothes to allow women to enjoy femininity without compromising dignity. She has always been known for effortless understated chic.
