Artistic Director, Creative Director, Fashion Designer, Photographer: HEDI SLIMANE.
Hedi Slimane was born in Paris to an Italian mother and a Tunisian father. He was raised and studied in Paris. At 11, he discovered photography, received his first camera and learned black and white darkroom printing. At 16, without fashion in mind, Hedi Slimane started making his own clothes.
In 1996, Pierre Bergé installs Hedi Slimane in the position of ready-to-wear director of mens collections at Yves Saint Laurent and later he became artistic director. After the Black Tie collection for autumn-winter 2000-2001, which foreshadowed the advent of Hedi Slimane’s silhouette, and the debuts of “skinny”, he chose to leave YSL, declined the offer to resume Jil Sander, and accepted the position of creative director for menswear at Christian Dior.
