History: "Aigner was at first a bookbinder; shortly after the second world war, he was creating custom-made high-end leather goods for a number of haute couture (high fashion) boutiques in Paris. Aigner established himself designing handbags and belts for the European fashion elite. In 1950, after successful apprenticeships with designers Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga, Aigner arrived in New York City from Paris with plans to launch his brand in the new burgeoning American market. He also perfected the Aigner Logo after his monogram, the "a" for Aigner shaped into a horseshoe. In 1959, Aigner opened his first showroom in New York City. In 2000, Etienne Aigner died in New York at the age of 96."
