Isabel Canovas created jewellery for Christian Dior, under Marc Bohan, leaving to open her own design house in Paris, with signature jewellery in a highly recognisable and distinctive baroque style. She continued creating jewels until 1992, when her assistant, Dominique Aurientis, took over and set out on her own path. Using a wide variety of materials, as diverse as fur and feathers, Canovas’ designs are noticeably bold and ornate. Accessories were also created. Isabel Canovas was a very visually articulate woman, whose dream was to gather all French artisans under one roof.
