Julien Fournié, the eponymous founder of his own Parisian haute-couture label, originally studied biology. In 2009, he
channeled that scientific edge into precisely cut fashion creations when he launched his brand. Previously the Creative Director at Torrente, and
having worked for some of the biggest names in fashion such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Givenchy and Christian Dior, it is no surprise that he, and his
anatomic designs quickly rose to the top.
In recent years, Fournié has been looking towards the future and bridging the gap between fashion and technology. As an ambassador for Fashion
Lab, an avant-garde technology incubator created by Dassault Systèmes, he is able to use 3D engineering for his clothing designs. Not only is he
leveraging technology, Fournié is also broadening his horizons from the Parisian fashion scene, and making his mark in the Asian market after
showing a collection in Singapore. Trend Privé sits down with the couturier in an exclusive interview to discuss the past, present and future of
Julien continues to forge ahead in new directions, and is at the forefront of high-Tech haute couture designs. He has expanded his brand into prêt-à-porter, the Asian Market and was even a mentor on Vietnam’s Next Top Model.
