When Eva Franco emigrated to the United States as a young girl, fashion quickly became her entrée into new surroundings. Born and raised in Transylvania, Romania, but of Hungarian heritage, she discovered that her passion for designing clothing helped her express herself as she communicated with her American peers. After graduating from New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, Franco went to Paris, where she continued her education as a design assistant for Etienne Brunel.
But it was when she moved to Los Angeles that she began crafting clothes for herself. Fueled by positive remarks from passersby, she set up shop at a local flea market, where she was able to learn directly from customers about creating pieces that celebrate the female form.
Eva Franco designs feminine clothing that echo sensuality and old Hollywood glamour. Her specialty is creating striking and extraordinarily flattering dresses, skirts and tops. Each item is sculpted and draped to emphasize a woman’s shape and yet hide imperfection – the ultimate illusion that every woman seeks. Being a former soap opera actress herself, she lives in LA and dresses tons of Hollywood gals.
Her aesthetic is classic with a twist and her love of tailoring is evident in all of her pieces. The collection incorporates unique and exclusive fabrics, offering special textures and weaves that Eva designs herself and creates in Europe, although the collection is constructed in Los Angeles. Eva Franco offers a collection of striking classics with a modern twist. With Eva Franco’s line of contemporary women’s fashions you will find dazzlingly printed separates, lustrous fabrics, and feminine silhouettes.
Today, Eva Franco is still based in LA, where each of her exquisite silhouettes is meticulously crafted to celebrate contemporary femininity
