Philipp Plein was studying law when he began designing furniture for family and friends. Soon his designs drew attention from experts within the interior design industry and in 1998, the company PHILIPP PLEIN was founded in Münich, Germany.
To avoid wasting any material, Plein started making bags and accessories from the leftover exotic leathers, which were sold alongside his design pieces at trade fairs. In 2003 the 25 year -old entrepreneur was asked to design a lounge at the German trade fair CPD Dusseldorf, for Moet & Chandon, where he was also allowed to sell his accessories. In one day he made over € 100.000. The law degree was dropped, as was the furniture, and the fashion brand was born a year later in 2004.
