In 1927, Jonuz Pernaska, established the first Fashion Salon in Tirana, as a design and production of high quality clothes studio. The styling line, was based on textiles like: silk, tulle, velvet, taffettà and other special garments. The retailers of the salon were located mainly in Italy and France and the textiles were selected personally by Mr. Jonuz. The salon focused totally on women clothes, uniquely modeled, which reflected class and nobility. The princesses of the Royal family of the time, have been regular clients of the salon.

 

The activity continued successfuly, growing constantly and being recognized as a quality brand, conveying added value to the final products.

 

In 1948, with the installation of the communist system, the private sector and the bourgeoisie in Albania got hit. The salon was forced to close, but Jonuz continued designing and producing at home with a limited production, for a particular type of clientele, partly for family friends and partly, for the new elitte of the time.

 

In 1971, during a trip as a guest to his family in the former Yugoslavia, unexpectedly, Jonuz passed away, leaving behind a precious legacy in fashion. Jenka, the wife of Beli, the oldest son of Jonuz, was his apprentice and she continued the activity in the field of tailoring, unfortunatelly even more limitely, given the conditions that allowed that system.

 

In 2016, the Pernaska family, decided to revive the roots and heritage, left by the great designer Jonuz Pernaska, reopening the salon, branded as the first Albanian fashion brand, called ONUS (associated with the name of Jonuz and the latin meaning "Obligation") to carry passion and talent in the fashion world, even for the current and future generations.
