Couture is most of the time a matter of taste, but when fashion becomes Couture, the world is emphasized, sublimated, highlighted, desired… well, sometimes, we touch god’s creation. Some Couturiers play with colors, others with shapes… some will produce a great entertainment show, others will just highlight the beauty of a curve. Martin Grant is not a showman but after a new collection, the world looks more beautiful. Not over-the-top, just simply perfect. Martin Grant is our Fashion Creator of the Month.
Martin Grant was born in Australia (Melbourne) in 1966. He is what most of fashion journalists called “the Australian
little miracle”. At the age of 16 he launches his first ready-to-wear collection and opened his atelier in the fashionable area of Collins St. At 18 years old he makes his first appearance in the Australian Vogue. After a short interlude in order to learn the art of Sculpture, Martin Grant comes back to fashion and install his brand in Paris in 1992. In time he gathered a loyal customers list in Japan, UK, France and Australia. The actress Cate Blanchett is part of his fellowfollowers. Since then, he cultivated his taste for elegance, timeless silhouettes and luxurious materials.
Here are some of my preferred looks from the last 2 collections of this year.
Martin Grant has a sculptural style, highlighting the femininity of all women. Simple and beautiful. Sometimes less is more.
