Regina Schrecker is a world-renowned fashion designer and costume designer, formerly "Lady Universe" and muse of the great Pop Artist Andy Warhol, who portrayed her in a couple of artworks, which later became "icons" of her brand, launched in 1980. Her successful career includes important artistic collaborations, such as the one with Arnaldo Pomodoro, who "sculpted" the bottle of her perfume. In the 90s, she focused on emerging markets: Regina Schrecker was one of the first brands to bring the message of Italian fashion to countries like Russia, Ukraine, the Czech Republic , Japan and China, up to Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia.
