The history of the Azzaro brand has been traditionally traced back to 1962, when its founder, Loris Azzaro, came to Paris. Born into an Italian family in Tunisia, Azzaro spent his childhood and youth there. He studied in Toulouse, France, and after graduation taught French and Italian in Tunisia. However, the turning point in his biography became his arrival in Paris in 1962.
An innovator with impeccable taste, a writer, and a talented designer, Loris immediately began creating original accessories. At first, he gave them to his wife Michelle Carsy, and close friends, but very quickly his fame spread throughout all the fashionistas of Paris. Among the fans of his talent were the brightest stars of that time. In particular, Brigitte Bordeaux, Claudia Cardinale, Sophia Loren, Liza Minnelli, Barbara Streisand, Romy Schneider, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Isabelle Adjani and many more. Also, among his clients were such high society figures as the Princess of Monaco, the Empress of Iran, and the Duchess of Orleans.

Already in 1968, Azzaro opened his own fashion house in the French capital and began to receive eminent guests there, admiring the talent of the master. In addition to fashionable outfits, bags, belts and perfumes, he developed designs for costume jewelry, which is now highly collectible. Traditionally, the designer used gold-tone metals, lucite, rhinestones and art glass. Having launched his own perfume line in the 1970s, he began designing brooches, pendants and earrings in the shape of perfume bottles, which were sold in boutiques along with his perfumes.
French-Italian designer Loris Azzaro died of cancer at the age of 70 on November 20, 2003.
