About the designer
After graduating from the distinguished school of Visual Arts in Brussels, La Cambre, Belgian designer Cédric Charlier went on to work for Céline in Paris. Saying he has a true devotion to fashion almost feels like an understatement as he learned the ropes of embroidery from his grandmother at the age of nine. In 2000 the dynamic fashion designer changed career paths and started creating for the Jean Paul Knott Studio in Brussels for two years. He joined the team of Alber Elbaz at Lanvin during the coming six years until he was accredited the task to invigorate the iconic Cacharel label.
He took the grand leap in 2012 when he showed his first womenswear collection of his own eponymous brand in Paris. Five successful years later, Charlier also launched a menswear collection in 2017 which he presented in Milan. The designs that sprout from the creative mind of Cédric could be labelled as an exquisite mix between refined and elegant yet relaxed and contemporary. He travels the lines between femininity and masculinity to unveil alluring and refreshing shapes, cuts and colours. The Belgian creator also enlarges this aesthetic by showing menswear and womenswear during the same presentation.
