Nina Ricci is a fashion house founded by Maria "Nina" Ricci and her son Robert in Paris in 1932.
Nina Ricci designed gowns while Robert managed the business and finances. She worked with the fabrics directly on the mannequin to ensure they had shape once they were finished. Nina Ricci designs soon became known for the refined, romantic, always feminine feeling Maria adds to all of her collections.
Several Flight Attendant uniforms were designed by the Nina Ricci brand. Nina Ricci is also a pioneer of licensing their designs before the rise of Ready-to-wear. As early as 1960, they started licensing their patterns to upscale boutiques in New York or Hong Kong for 'line-to-line' reproduction.
After Maria Ricci's death in 1970, Belgian Designer Jules-François Crahay was appointed head of the house. Robert continued to excel in perfumery and business until his death in 1988.
The company is owned by the Spanish beauty and fashion group Puig since 1998.
