Egon Von Furstenberg was born in Lausanne, the son of a German family of antique and noble origins. As a young man he lived travelling between Italy, Austria and the United States, which he considers his second home. He went to school and university in Switzerland where he obtained a degree in Economics. Destined to a brilliant career at New York's Chase Manhattan Bank, Egon decided instead to dedicate himself to his great passion for fashion and design.
So he applied and became a student of the Parson's School of Design and at the same workeds at the Macy's department store. In 1975 on showed his first line of pullovers and men's shirts. Thus the Egon von Furstenberg label was born. The company Egon von Furstenberg s.r.l. began its business in 1977 in the United States and in 1983 in Italy. The designer's creative consultancy focused at a variety of trading licences dealing in the production and distribution of products for different target and market segments. The Egon von Fustenberg label, thanks to the designer's rich creativity, is today present the world over.
