A man who lives to invent his own legend, who creates passionately, that what woman envy to wear. Born under the sign of the Pisces, passion is his only compass. He works hard to win his liberty, one creation at a time, transforming the female silhouette, he infuses them with elegance, style and glamour. He declares his distaste in anything that is not authentic in the fashion industry. His garments becomes the ultimate couture  of all times as he approaches the woman of this world with precious designs, now a triumph, the whole world wants to wear Jacques Lagrange Couture.

Arriving at his city apartment, he makes me coffee, I cut his hair, ready for his trip to who know where? He takes several phone calls, all of them International calls. While on his phone, I admire and observe the creative clutter, the sewing machine, the giant scissor, the Victorian style couch covered in garments, the mannequins, the mirror, there’s a story to tell in this house.

If only the mannequins could speak I am sure they will tell you “Every woman should choose and desire to be unique. Let instinct be your guide, desire the unthinkable, dare, and invent the woman you want to be. Let passion inspire you, be authentic. Choose what you find is pleasing and anticipate timeless trends. Desire to be a woman who enjoy life to the fullest, seek what will happen next, choose to wear couture. Desire to look like nobody else, be an icon, a way of living, a style, desire beauty, be yourself in the image of a man that impresses his style upon the world, wear Jacques Lagrange Couture”
