Hedi Slimane

"I'd like men to think about evolving into something more sophisticated, more seductive. To explore the possibility of an entirely new kind of masculinity."

After working as Collections Director for Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Homme in 1997, and subsequently as Artistic Director, Hedi became the chief designer for men’s clothing, Dior Homme, for Christian Dior in 2000. In 2002, the Council of Fashion Designers of America named him the International Designer of the Year in New York. Boasting a background in furniture design, fragrance, store design, and photography, he is famous for popularizing the slim silhouette in menswear. As well as a fashion designer, he has been involved in various other projects, including becoming editor-in-chief of Libération and designing album covers for artists such as Phoenix or Theswimmingpools. In 2004 he published Stage, a collection of his Rock photography he has published several other books of his photography and has contributed writing and photography to many style and fashion magazines including Vanity Fair. Slimane has many connections to the British indie-rock scene, notably his close friendship with controversial Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty. In 2004 German documentary-makers Christina Trebbi and Gero Von Boehm made a documentary about Slimane, entitled Hedi Slimane, ma vie (""Hedi Slimane, my life""). Hedi is widely known to use very young and thin models for his fashion shows, he also claims to have recruited young models in London and Berlin who fit within his criteria.
