Women fashion French designer, Roland Mouret, is most famous for his approachable and practical yet so very luxurious and fashionable style. With instant classics such as the Galaxy Dress, Roland Mouret shoes, and tops, the fashion designer has been dressing up international celebrities with success for years.
For over a decade, Roland Mouret has indeed designed some of the most coveted womenswear collections in the world. His style demonstrates an intuitive and sensual understanding of the female form.
Roland Mouret’s fashion journey has been an unlikely one. It began with a country boy escaping to the city. Mouret left his French mountain hometown to live in Paris, the world’s fashion capital.
After ten years working in Paris as a model, stylist, and art director, Mouret moved to London. The move empowered him to explore new creative directions. Mouret had no formal fashion design training, but he knew how to cut and had the skills to dress women with elegance and class.“I came from a life where I thought the door was closed. Yet it opened the doors to my creativity and I’ve always grabbed my chances,” Mouret says.
Roland Mouret’s famous Galaxy Dress: A ready-to-wear designer dress
“The Galaxy; it’s a bit like having your first Number 1 chart hit. You are defined by it.” The Galaxy dress was first introduced in 2005 and remains one of Roland Mouret’s timeless signature dresses today. The Galaxy dress is successfully partly because Mouret understands that different women require different support. “A big breakthrough for me was when I started to understand bras. The back of the dress is solid so you can conceal any underwear you want.“
The Roland Mouret brand now includes much more than the Galaxy dress, however. From tops to eyewear, shoes, bags, accessories and bridal, Mouret has expanded to cover all the ready-to-wear categories.
