Celebrity Designer Angela Dean is taking the world by storm. With critically-acclaimed designs, a loyal following of Hollywood’s top celebrities, this fashion powerhouse has evolved into one of the hottest names in the music and entertainment industry. Angela Dean is preparing to let the world know that she is indeed building a global empire.
She started designing and sewing at the early age of seven years old. She made a pair of shorts and a matching scarf without a pattern, which was very rare for a child of that age. After graduating from high school she attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Angela is a member of F.I.D.M.’s Alumni Board of Directors, and was the Residing President Elect 2004. Upon graduation, she went directly into the industry designing for various fashion companies. One job she truly enjoyed was designing lingerie for a well- known boutique in Hollywood, California that specialized in high-end lingerie and evening gowns for the television and movie industry.
In 1987, Angela created the now famous bullet bra bustier that launched Madonna’s outerwear lingerie look. She also designed Paula Abdul’s leopard printed bustier on the December 1989 cover of Us Magazine. The two bustier looks created a major fashion trend.
Deanzign began in a small boutique in the eighties on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, California where Angela Dean sold her unique but timeless designs to entertainment heavyweights. As the music video craze exploded, requests for her star-worthy creations took off, leading Angela to eventually close the store to provide full custom service to the celebrities.
The Hollywood Museum requested Angela to collect and preserve original garments worn by her celebrity clients. This medley of originals was called era of entertainment. Deanzign show pieces once worn by Nancy Wilson, Natalie Cole, Patti LaBelle, Dyan Cannon and Priscilla Presley. The exhibit encompassed showstoppers of beaded imported laces, rhinestone embellished gowns, and silk taffeta opera coats that represented the refined elegance of the 40′s and 50′s.
Over the past two decades, Angela Dean has created a brand portfolio of distinctly dressed and satisfied “Superstars.” With immediate goals to further expand Deanzign Designer Collections as the most diversified fashion house in the world. Angela’s long term goals involve continuously growing her fashion empire into an international lifestyle brand and further establishing Deanzign Designer Collections as a worldwide powerhouse of style.
