The Fontanas were 3 Italian sisters and designers: Zoe, Micol and Giovanna. They set up their atelier in Rome in the Via Liguria in 1943. Six years later Linda Christian selected one of their dresses for her wedding to Tyrone Power in Rome, 1949. After that they were asked to design dresses for Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor and many other Hollywood and European stars and other famous people.
