|PARIS, Jul 8, 2009 / FW/ — Passionate and determined, Alexandre Vauthier joined Thierry Mugler studio right after his fashion studies. To Vauthier, Mugler represents the absolute master of garment architecture. Spending 4 years at Thierry Mugler, Vauthier was introduced and then became part of the lofty world of haute couture.
After Thierry Mugler, Alexandre Vauthier joined Jean Paul Gaultier as Head Designer of the still nascent couture collection. This rich 8 years of experience strengthened Vauthier’s desire to realize his own fashion house.
His skills honed at Gaultier and Mugler, Alexandre Vauthier added another facet to his aesthetics by professional collaborations in Japan and numerous trips to the U.S.
Inspired by the French culture as well as influenced by the Anglo-Saxon mores, Vauthier takes the best from both worlds wherein he reworks the traditional code of elegance and transposes them in his modern vision.
In January 2009, during Paris Couture Week, he presented his first own couture collection at La Maison des Métallos.
Irish singer-songwriter and music producer, Roisin Murphy, convinced of Vauthier ‘s talent, has supported him from the very first moment. Murphy walked the runway on his first show and wears Vautheir’s creations for public appearances.
