Adrienne Vittadini (born 1945, in Gyor, Hungary) is an American fashion designer. When she was 12, her family fled Gyor during the 1956 Hungarian revolution. In 1979, she started what would become a multimillion-dollar fashion business as a hobby. The brand name Adrienne Vittadini is synonymous with designs that have a "Euro-American" point of view. She uses vibrant colors and prints and she is known for her clothing, handbags, swimsuits, shoes, eyewear, and perfumes. Her company was purchased by Retail Brand Alliance in 2001.

She now lives seasonally in Sarasota, Florida, where the Coty Award-winning fashion designer went into the home fashion and house design business [1].

In April 2017, some Ivanka Trump clothing items were mistakenly labeled as Adrienne Vittadini items before being sold to Stein Mart. G-III Apparel Group, the company that licenses Ivanka Trump brand clothing, then took responsibility for mislabeling the clothing, and said they were taking steps to remove mislabeled items from stores.[1][2]
