designer: Byblosabout

Byblos\' two designers, Keith Varty and Alan Cleaver, were both born in 1952 - Keith in Darlington on January 9 and Alan in Northampton May 30.Their collaboration with the Genny Group began in 1980 when Arnaldo Girombelli, founder of Genny Moda, called them to design the man and women\'s Byblos collection for Fall-Winter 1981-1982. And this was just the beginning. The clothes of Byblos are known for a fresh, young approach, with frequent use of embroidery and special detailing that make the garments unique. The sense of humor of the designers is evident, along with a love of ethnic and romantic styles, themes which are often used in their designs.
