Catherine Malandrino is a French fashion designer.[1] She resides between New York City and Paris.

Early life and education[edit]

Malandrino was born in Grenoble in the French Alps to Italian parents.[1] She began her professional career in Paris after attending ESMOD.[1]


Malandrino moved from Paris to New York City in 1998[2] where she met with Diane von Fürstenberg. Following their meeting, Malandrino was offered the position of senior designer and creative director of the HIGH re-launched house.[1]

In 2001, Malandrino created the "Flag Collection" which featured ultra-feminine, jagged flag dresses inspired by the American flag. The collection was well-received and helped establish Malandrino as a designer to watch in the fashion industry.[1]

Malandrino's success continued as she went on to design collections for Lacoste in 2011 and for Kohl's in 2013. Her designs have been praised for their unique blend of French and American styles, as well as their attention to detail and quality.


In 2017, Malandrino published the book Une Femme Française.[3]
