Ms. Powell is a veteran of the Paris-London-New York Fashion scene. As a student in Paris, she was hand-picked by Mr. Hubert De Givenchy himself to work at his Atelier. Yuta went on to own and operate the Givenchy flagship store under her tutelage of her mentor Mr. Givenchy. Upon the sale of the Givenchy brand to LVMH, Yuta moved on to operate and own under license, the Carolina Herrera store on Madison Avenue.
Today, YUTA POWELL owns her eponymous salon as an independent fashion house. Yuta Powell is not the ordinary retail concept, but has reached back to the ways of 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s when many great fashion houses presented their collection in the elegance of a salon. Located in a classical town house just off Madison Avenue, the salon atmosphere is intimate without being intimidating. It is the perfect setting to engage with a clientele that shares with her the value of unique, creative, detailed design, excellence of quality, impeccable service and equally important; a fashion life line for many seasons to come.
YUTA POWELL HAS BEEN FEATURED IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, DEPARTURES MAGAZINE, FRENCH VOGUE, WWD AND FABULOUS FLAVIA among OTHERS.
