DeWAR's first boutique, owned by Vanina de WAR, opened its doors in Paris in 1938. During the Second World War the brand fled Europe and moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Maison deWar enjoyed great success but, unfortunately, once Vanina de War passed away, so did her brand.
Sayana Gonzalez - Vanina’s granddaughter - showed great interest for fashion at an early age. For the last 10 years she has had one goal in mind: to reopen deWAR, and with it, those fantasy childhood years spent between fabric roles and needles.
After pursuing her studies in Paris and working both in Europe and Asia, Sayana Gonzalez reopened Maison deWar in 2017.
