For twenty years Roland Mouret has created the most coveted of womenswear 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 where 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. Referring to Mouret’s work, renowned British fashion writer Colin McDowell states, “The art of butchery and dress making are comparable as both share a precision of cutting, folding and hand workmanship – and require courage and judgment.”
