████████████ DESIGNER

For over a decade, Roland Mouret has created the most coveted of women’s wear collections. The designer has defined the era of the iconic dress which have become known by a single name – Galaxy, Titanium, Moon – and have earned Mouret a reputation as magician, master of structure and silhouette and as a man with an intuitive understanding of the female form.

Mouret was born in Lourdes, France. His mother worked in a hotel as a waitress and his father was a butcher. He first learned about fabric while working in his father’s shop, watching the folding of the butcher’s apron and learning to fold it to reveal a clean aspect, seeing the pattern of the blood on the white linen. He learned to cut from watching the way the skin of an animal is sectioned and divided with the knife. A confidence, a directness and boldness, informed his aesthetic and his approach defined by these early memories.

Years later, at his father’s funeral, he reconnected with his home town. “We didn’t drive to the funeral. We walked because it was a beautiful day and I saw all the little streets that contain all my childhood dreams and experiences.” That year he dedicated a collection to his father’s memory and paid tribute to his inspiration in the cut and fold of the clothes he presented. It is these experiences that have directly influenced the physicality of the way Mouret designs. He instinctively drapes fabric on the body rather than drawing sketches. Mouret needs to be close to the shape of the body, interacting with fabric and form with his hands. The essence of his success, he insists, is the physicality of knowing how a person wants to undress. “Dresses are for undressing. We all dress up to undress”. This aesthetic has also informed his menswear collection – Roland Mouret, Mr. – the designer’s initials reversed. “Having spent the last decade dressing women, it has been incredibly inspiring to be able to work with men. To think and reflect on what men really want. How men dress. How I dress.”

Mouret’s work is informed by the diverse experiences of his own life, “I consider my years in Paris, modelling, styling, being part of the social scene all a key part of my make-up. As are the years I have spent in London, opening a café gallery, video directing, and ultimately building my first store under my own name.

My fashion history is well documented. Building success and then losing my name, starting over, building a new unique partnership, getting back my name – it is all part of an inspiring and evolving journey. Today is where we are. You have to learn so much and go so far to understand that the support of the team around you is indispensable and that happiness and simplicity is everything.

Then you take this on to the next stage, which in my case is keeping that fine balance between the personal connection and creating a brand. Both are intrinsically linked for me. That is the paradox.”

Paris Fashion Week

The Fédération Française de la Couture, du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode was founded in 1973.

The association began as the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, which dates to 1868. The Fédération’s headquarters have been located at 100 rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, Paris 8e, since 1935.

The Fédération is the executive body for each of the specific Chambres Syndicales, or industry-specific associations, which constitute its membership. Elected president Didier Grumbach runs it. Mr. Grumbach, entrusted with the industry’s confidence, works to define and implement measures that will help the French fashion industry grow.

The Chambre Syndicale du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode

This association, created in 1973, is presided over by Ralph Toledano (JeanPaul Gaultier). It is made up of Haute Couture houses and fashion designers who produce women’s ready-to-wear.

A unique quality of the The Fédération Française de la Couture, du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode is that its membership includes non-French companies from countries including Japan, Italy, Belgium, etc.

This mix reflects the growing globalization of fashion.

████████████ DESIGNER

One of the foremost American designers during the last two decades, Narciso Rodriguez plays a singular role in global fashion. As Anna Wintour, editor in chief of American Vogue has said, "No one but Narciso has ever made a simple line look more stunning."

In 1996, Rodriguez received international acclaim when he designed the bias-cut sheath wedding dress that his close friend Carolyn Bessette wore when she married John Kennedy, Jr.

On November 4, 2008, Narciso Rodriguez became part of a monumental event in American history. To celebrate her husband Barack Obama’s triumphant victory as the first African American president of The United States, Michelle Obama chose to wear a dress from the designer’s Spring 2009 Collection. "It was both emotional and exhilarating," Rodriguez said. "To be part of this memorable moment in history was a great honor."

Today, Narciso Rodriguez’s fashion house is based in New York City where he shows his women’s ready-to-wear collections.
