Founded in 1989, BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP is the lifetime vision of one man: Founder, Designer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Max Azria. After years of success designing women’s wear in Paris and Los Angeles, Azria decided to pursue his dream of launching a design house that spoke to the modern woman, and BCBGMAXAZRIA was born.
Azria’s distinct ability to cultivate his creative sensibilities while maximizing his keen business sense is key to BCBGMAXAZRIA’s success. With the launch of the BCBGMAXAZRIA brand, he redefined the designer category by offering high-quality, on-trend clothing at contemporary price points.
Lubov Azria, Chief Creative Officer of BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP and Max’s wife, joined the company as a designer in 1991 and was named Creative Director in 1996. Under Lubov’s influence, BCBGMAXAZRIA has become one of America’s leading design houses, with collections that span evening, cocktail dresses, sportswear separates, handbags, small leather goods and licensed outerwear, footwear, hats and swimwear.
Today, BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP has more than 570 BCBGMAXAZRIA retail boutiques worldwide, each serving as a consummate showcase for women’s ready-to-wear and accessory collections. There are currently over 175 BCBGMAXAZRIA boutiques in the United States, and BCBGMAXAZRIA is present throughout Europe, Canada, Venezuela, Chile, Portugal, Greece, Bahrain, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong and Russia among other countries.
