From Shirley MacLaine, she has the green eyes and red fringe and her bursts of laughter are part of her enthusiastic nature.
From Madeleine Vionnet to Coco Chanel, she has the energy which has earned her a place to the sun in a world where fashion design is mainly in the hands of men.
For all those reasons, Rose Mett has managed to turn her TORRENTE fashion house into a bastion of rare elegance : the kind which appeals to women and delights men.
Rose Mett demonstrated that she had a sixth sense, that of seduction, as well as the capacity to understand women, to provide them with what they want without knowing it : the right amount of elegance, embellishment, spice and a little sexy overtone that makes the body sing...and Paris made no mistake when she opened her boutique on Matignon Avenue in 1968 with a style so new that all the stars ofthe moment flocked to her shop : Marlène Dietrich, Romy Schneider,
Three years later, in 1971, TORRENTE entered the Haute Couture set. Little by little the design house made its mark and launched a men’s ready-to-wear line : “TORRENTE Hommes”.
Its accessory collections proliferated : eyeglasses, scarves, leather items, etc...
In 1988, TORRENTE left Faubourg Saint-Honoré to set up premises in the Couturiers’ golden triangle at Rond-point des Champs Elysées, in the private mansion that has housed the salons of Paul Poiret.
Her Haute Couture collections travel constantly, from London to Tokyo, from New York to Shanghai. Her fashion has international renown.
Rose Mett was Chairwoman and CEO of her fashion house and was also art director of all the collections until February 2003.
The TORRENTE name enjoys a singular prestige. It belongs to the small circle of labels that can boast the presenting two Haute Couture fashion shows each year in Paris, which is alike to the Cannes Festival and the Oscar ceremony, that attract some of the highest media coverage in the world.
The story of TORRENTE, now forms another page in the history of Parisian luxury fashion....
