Victor Weinsanto studied ballet at the John Cranko Schule in Stuttgart. After realizing he wanted to be a fashion designer, he trained at the Atelier Chardon Savard school in Paris, where he discovered "the pleasure of having fun with clothes". As part of his training, he worked for major Parisian brands such as Y/project and Chloé. He attributes two years working with Jean Paul Gaultier, where he learned savoir-faire, craftsmanship and freedom in his creative process, as his most formative experience in the fashion industry.
Victor Weinsanto launched his namesake line in 2020. He brings his love of the performing arts to his fun, colorful, cabaret-themed presentations. He finds inspiration in live performance and art in general. The models for Weinsanto's shows are often muses and friends from different creative backgrounds such as dance, theater and cabaret. He also draws inspiration from history, architecture and music.
