Haider Ackermann

Haider Without Borders
Born in Colombia, adopted by French parents who are frequent travelers, Ackermann grew up in Ethiopia, the Maghreb, Iran, the Netherlands and Belgium.
This mix of diverse cultures has fueled his creations since his beginnings at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in 1994. 
He created his eponymous house in 2002, and presented his first collection during Paris Fashion Week Fall / Winter 2002-2003. In2010, the designer launches his first wardrobe (in his own words) for Men, inspired by his collection for women.
Fascinated by Yves Saint Laurent, Haider Ackermann is characterized by his refined spirit, theelegance of her silhouettes, and her work on colors, contrasts, superimpositions and drapes which give lightness to the gait of the one who wears them.
In September 2016, Ackermann was appointed artistic director of Berluti.
