Celebrated Los Angeles based designer Mark Zunino has come to define “Red Carpet Style” over the last decade. Initially anadvertising major at California’s prestigious Pepperdine University, a chance interview with legendary film and television designer Nolan Miller led to an apprenticeship in 1985 and, ultimately, a full-fledged career in fashion design now spanning over 25 years.
Learning the art of the couture business from European trained pattern makers and tailors, Mark was able to refine his skills and eventually launch his own label in 1998. The experience he received from designing for such Hollywood legends as Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren allowed him to retain the values of old Hollywood glamour in his designs and reinterpret them for some of today’s hottest celebrities. Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Courtney Cox and Brooke Burke are just some of the world’s most beautiful women that have recently worn the Mark Zunino label. From the personally hand-drawn sketches to choosing the finest fabrics from around the world, a Mark Zunino gown is always the epitome of female elegance, glamour and individuality. Appointments in his private salon are hard to come by, as each design is custom made from start to finish with no detail left unnoticed.
