Conversations On A Banquette: Haute Couture Designer Adeline André

“Mon travail est basé sur le corps, les mouvements, la vie,” says haute couture designer Adeline André, which, translated, means “My work is based on the body, movements, life.” In 1997, André, who studied with Salvador Dali and trained alongside Marc Bohan at the House of Christian Dior, became one of the 10 official members of Paris’ prestigious Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture and since 1981, the year she opened her own atelier, she has consistently presented outstandingly inventive, modern and marvelously minimalist collections, which have redefined the notion of what couture means. We first became aware of André’s Excellent aesthetic in the ‘80s while living in Paris, following an introduction by our great friend, the artist Valentin Durathon. Here, The EP catches up with her yet again to discuss, bilingually, her chic technique.  To read the full interview, please click HERE. (Downloadable PDF)
