Designer Anne Bowen creates spirited, sexy and modern collections. As a luxury brand, her designs reflect on the inner confidence and individuality of women everywhere. Anne Bowen began designing at a very young age. Inspired by her mother's taste for menswear, she experimented with rich colors, textures and draping. Her designs possess simplicity in silhouette with an exquisite structure and are often adorned with semi-precious and precious stones. Her first collection debuted in Bergdorf Goodman in 1999 and has subsequently sold through retailers globally to Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Villa Moda in Kuwait, Joyce Stores in Hong Kong and many others. The designs of Anne Bowen have graced the red carpet at the Academy Awards, the Golden Globes, the Cannes Film Festival, and have also appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, Entertainment Tonight and Access Hollywood. She has also lent her design expertise to the red carpet fashion commentary at The Oscars on E! and personally covered the Golden Globes and Cannes Film Festival. Anne Bowen has dressed high profile celebrities such as Beyonce, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, Kim Cattrall, Cameron Diaz, Mandy Moore, Kristen Dunst, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Britney Spears, Kate Bosworth, Reese Witherspoon, Carrie Underwood and many more. In addition, well known musicians have performed live at her Fashion Week runway shows, helping to fuse couture with hip hop. Her energy and spirit have brought together artists such as Grammy award winning De La Soul, who performed during one of her major runway shows. Anne Bowen has designed interiors including the showrooms for Seven for All Mankind, creating custom pieces in white marble pebble panels, textured cement walls cooled with granite marble tables, exotic wood table tops with henna colored and leather accent chairs. She has also been commissioned by high-end, luxury hotels to create uniforms that reflect the aesthetic of luxury resorts. From designing a $5 million diamond-studded gown for charity worn by Jules Asner on the red carpet at the Oscars to exclusive cashmere and leather totes commissioned by Mercedes-Benz, Anne Bowen has the ability to infuse luxury and sophistication into everything she touches.
