Yacine Aouadi: a collection like an anagram

The designer said that his couture line is the sole quest for a modern and sophisticated silhouette; Yacine Aouadi chose craftsmanship and the métiers d’arts as evident antidote to standardization. And his Victorian-like dresses for fall/winter couture collection, in black, have delicate, almost organic embroidery at the neck or on the back, embroidered buttons, and a wide organza insert near the hem, zippers and metallic details.

Born in 1980, the youngest of five children from a family native of Algeria, Yacine grew up in the Northern districts of Marseille. At 25 year sold, he left for Paris to study fashion design at the Studio Berçot. Following his graduation, he joined the house of Balmain, working with Christophe Decarnin and then Olivier Rousteing. After a few years there, he decided to launch his own couture line.
