About the designer


After being trained by couturier Azzedine Alaïa and attending Studio Berçot in Paris, Véronique Leroy decided to found her own ready-to-wear label in 1991. Having started by designing clothes for her dolls, she was always fully committed to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer. Her aesthetic can be described as a wardrobe that doesn't necessarily follow fashion, yet focuses on the individuality of the creation. Leroy refers to the Margiela legacy to explain her thoughtful designing process.

Collection autumn/winter 2017

Veronique Leroy’s autumn/winter 2017 collection was a real eighties revival. It was certainly one you had to interpret in a definite way, focusing on Leroy’s vibrant use of fabrics and dapper craftsmanship. Crushed velvet, the highlight of the collection, was featured on jumpsuits, dresses and thigh-high boots in a rust-brown or shocking pink. High-waisted trousers and mini skirts were crafted from smocked-spandex-like fabrics in a fresh, intense green. Statement buckle belts cinched close-fitted one-piece suits with turtle-necks. Shearling coats and multicoloured tweed-inspired jackets formed the perfect autumn/winter layering, whereas the cropped oversized sweaters and vests, defined by dropped shoulders and billowing sleeves, sent the silhouettes out for a flashback in time.
