Delphine Krakoff grew up in Paris, where she attended business school. Though her education was in business, it was her own interest in design that landed her jobs at the luxury houses of Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior in Paris, and later Coach and Ralph Lauren in New York. Her venture into the world of interior design came by chance, when a friend offered her the opportunity to decorate his classic Hamptons beach house. Her innate sense of style and natural French flair made the transition into the trade seamless, and led to the creation of her own interior design company in 2000.
Fashion designer, acclaimed photographer, passionate collector and patron of the arts, Reed Krakoff is creative director of the Reed Krakoff Collection. Drawing from over twenty years of experience designing for iconic American houses, Krakoff has elevated his New York-based label into a global brand and has himself become internationally recognized for his contributions to the industries of fashion, art and design. Graphic, sculptural and born from a unique vision of modern style, the Reed Krakoff Collection debuted in February 2010.
