HIS HISTORY

HIS HISTORY

Philippe entered the workshop of the military master tailor at the age of sixteen, Cadre Noir de Saumur. Since then, he has banned for life, the word “almost perfect” from his vocabulary.

The doors of haute couture fashion houses opened to him. With Karl Lagerfeld, his passion for fashion was revealed. It was an immense opportunity to be at the heart of the creative process of the alchemical laboratory. He was able to contribute to the elaboration and precise realization of models created and designed by today’s Fashion Geniuses.

During the eight years, he worked Mrs. Anneliese Helzelman at Jean Paul Gaultier slowly new horizons opened up, new fields of expression, where his knowledge and experience revealed new talents.

Finally, it was in Romania that he was able to achieve his ambition: develop the know-how of artisans through exceptional work that would reveal their talents. He developed a collection entirely designed to save endangered trades: the collection100% RO.

It’s a new direction he’s taken and that he wants to make it blossom even further with Renaissance: a new life and a new Renaissance in society through hidden talent.
