It has been said that that the rules can only be broken by those who have mastered them and Monsieur Vauthier is an “A” student. His distinctive resume includes 2 extended terms of employment that shaped his career and taught him the rules of the “game” … first at Mugler, (when there was a Thierry present) and then at Jean Paul Gaultier in the Haute Couture aspect of that brand. What more needs to be said … he was taught by the best of the best.

Vauthier is the rare designer who dips his toes in the waters of both Haute Couture and ready to wear. There are very few young designers who are capable to successfully straddle both worlds, but in this era of sameness there is Alexandre Vauthier. His clothes set him apart and will attract generations of women who can and will unleash their inner goddess.

The collections rendered under his name are exercises in the mastery of cutting and draping as well as the disciplines and rigors of fine precision tailoring and construction. The clothes are not for the faint of heart nor are they ever considered boring or run of the mill. These clothes are audacious, bold, overtly sexy and never require any of the blah blah blah that seems to accompany so many collections these days.

In other words, in the end these clothes speak for themselves and to his clientele. Today Alexandre Vauthier speaks for himself to us... Please enjoy this and remember that today’s runway creations are tomorrow’s vintage!

A big MERCI beaucoup from moi to him!!
