CareerEdit

He was a student at fashion school ESMOD from 1991 to 1994. After being a trainee for Thierry Mugler Couture in 2013, he became an assistant. In 1997 he moved to Jean Paul Gaultier where he was a head designer for the couture collections for eight years.[1]

Vauthier recalls his time with Mugler fondly: "My years at Mugler were extremely formatives at all levels. He taught me to be resourceful, find solutions very quickly."[2]

In 2009, he did his first fashion show with his own label, during Paris Fashion Week.[3] Ever since, Christian Louboutin does the shoes for Vauthier's fashion shows.[4]

In 2010, he created a clothing line for 3 Suisses.[5][6]

In 2011, after getting a makeover to Beyoncé for her album 4,[7] he created yule logs for the Grande Epicerie de Paris.[8]

For the year 2012 he was the art director for the Premium range of brand Pyrenex.[9] The same year Madonna chose him to create the look on the cover of her single Girl Gone Wild.[10]

In 2014, he created goodies for Lancôme with Jacquemus and Yiqing Yin.[11]

From 2011 to 2014 he was a guest member of the Chambre syndicale de la haute couture. Since December 2014, he is an official member, his fashion house being able to use the term "haute couture".[12][13]

StyleEdit

Alexandre Vauthier's collections mostly consist of black and gold.[14] For the fall-winter 2011-2012 seasons, the collection was all-red.[15]

His clothes often feature Swarovski crystals and embroideries by Maison Lesage.[16]

We can find a "V" (which stands for his name, Vauthier) on several clothes,[17] as well as the jewelry.
