Maurizio Galante
Maurizio Galante Haute Couture celebrates a body of work that covers over 25 years of the Paris-based Italian / French couturier's career. Galante is one of the world's most respected haute couture fashion designers, having won numerous awards, and in 2009 was appointed Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et desLettres by the French Minister of Culture.
The house of Maurizio Galante Haute Couture joined the French ‘Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture’ as a Membre Invitée in 1992, and was made a permanent member of this very closed circle in 2008.
Maurizio Galante's distinctive language is particularly valuable in today’s Haute Couture. Galante, who studied architecture prior to opting for fashion, perceives his garments as objects, with a flexible, fluid structure.
Maurizio Galante’s Haute Couture creations are realized with profound respect for traditional craftsmanship, poetically combining an architect's in-depth knowledge with the fine workmanship of the French Haute Couture atelier, and the impeccable finish of Italian manufacturing. They are worn by a select clientele of influential women all over the world, and are included in the collections of the most important international museums.
