Azzedine Alaïa began his career by studying sculpture at the fine arts institute in his native Tunis, an experience that deeply influenced his approach to design. In 1980, he launched his first women’s ready-to-wear collection. Alaïa is celebrated for his dramatic, body-accentuating creations. Each of the styles is strongly influenced by Maison Alaïa’s stylistic codes and rigorous attention to detail, which is reflected in every facet of the design and manufacturing process.
