Haute Couture dresses, Luxury Bags and Accessories
Julien Fournié Haute Couture House creates custom-made Haute Couture dresses for its clients. It offers a range of luxury bags and accessories.
Founded in 2009 in Paris, the Julien Fournié House is one of only sixteen houses in the world to have obtained the Haute Couture label.
About our haute couture collections and Julien Fournié
Although sketching has been a passion since his early years, fashion design was chosen by Julien Fournié only after a first academic orientation in the field of medical studies.
Selected as one of the talents chosen to study at the ESAA Duperré, he quickly preferred the technical rigor of the École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Creativity? He has learnt it at the side of the biggest names in Haute Couture, experiencing multiple internships inside prestigious Paris-based fashion houses, including Christian Dior, where he has met Jean Mouclier, who taught him how to sketch jewelry, but also Givenchy (when Alexander McQueen was Creative Director), Nina Ricci and Céline, among other names.
In 2000, at his graduation runway show, he received the Moët et Chandon Award for best accessory at Paris Fashion Awards.
While he had just come into internship at Céline, Jean Paul Gaultier hired him as an assistant in his Haute Couture studio. In charge of researching materials and embroidery, he also collaborated in designing some Madonna stage costumes for her “World Tour”. Identified as a budding talent by another great name of fashion, Claude Montana, he then collaborated with this master of cut and garment architecture.
In 2003, while he was working as a designer at Montana Creations, Julien Fournié was appointed by Torrente Haute Couture as Creative Director for ready-to-wear lines. A few days before his first show for the house based at the Rond-Point des Champs Elysées, he was named Creative Director for the entire brand, including Haute Couture.
Julien Fournié then wanted to discover the world and countries which were then only emerging in the fashion industry. In 2006, he was hired by the LG Fashion Group, in South Korea, to be the Creative Director of several brands. In Seoul, he met a different fashion ecosystem, directed to the future.
Back in Paris, Ramosport, the mythical home of the “travel coat” made him its new Creative Director. He then returned to accessories as a designer at Charles Jourdan. After the closing of these houses, which were led by financiers with little specific knowledge of the fashion markets, Julien Fournié took his destiny in hand.
Julien Fournié decided to found, in 2009, his eponymous house around the spirit of Parisian Couture, its unparalleled craftsmanship and constant need for innovation, and becoming one of the most prominent haute couture designers..
Julien Fournié Haute Couture House
Founded in 2009 by the couturier Julien Fournié, the Julien Fournié house is centered around what the designer calls his “laboratory”: Haute Couture. The history of the house is reflected in the collections unveiled in Paris, in January and July each year, during Haute Couture Week. Thus “First Pieces” marked in June 2009 the beginnings of the Julien Fournié style codes: back windows, “Art Deco” lace, noble fabrics (silk drape, muslin and organza) combined with more innovative materials. Thanks to this first collection, the young couturier has been awarded the Grand Prize of Creativity by the City of Paris in January 2010. It later became one of the most respected Haute Couture brands in the world.
For the fourth collection after its debut, in January 2011, Julien Fournié has become a “guest member” in the official calendar of Haute Couture runway shows. This marked a first step in aknowledging Julien Fournié as a promising new brand in the circle of grand couturiers. With this new title, Julien Fournié has put on the runway for the first time in the history of Haute Couture, a collection only worn by black models.
In the same year, Julien Fournié, together with Dassault Systèmes, created FashionLab, a technology incubator at the crossroads of fashion and 3D design, convinced that 3D could propel fashion to new heights. Since then, both partners have been exploring and developing several incubation projects concerning clothing, footwear, but also materials sourcing and fashion retailing. Developed with FashionLab 3D digital solutions , the Julien Fournié shoe collections (as seen on every runway show of the house since July 2014) are presented to Haute Couture customers for special orders.
In January 2017, the Julien Fournié House was officially classified as “Haute Couture”. The Haute Couture label, protected by the French Ministry of Industry, is given to a few houses (only sixteen prestigious names on this list today) which are combining the best of creativity in design and the utmost quality in garment making.
While respecting the tradition of Haute Couture, Julien Fournié has also forged new partnerships with high-tech giants such as Apple and Tencent.
Julien Fournié was thus able to digitize the creation, design and personalization of his Haute Couture pieces. He is one of the rare designers of Haute Couture to master the new digital tools.
Long considered as a survivor of a bygone era, the Haute Couture market has experienced a new boom in recent years. Julien Fournié has been able to establish direct and unique means of communication with his clients thanks to new technologies. It is no longer a question of sending Haute Couture clients a sketch to be validated, as was done in the past.
Julien Fournié has introduced a new process in which clients are not just spectators of the creative process. They have become actors in the unique experience of creating a Haute Couture garment wherever they are.
Bags and accessories from Julien Fournié.
Since December 2020, Julien Fournié has been developing a line of luxury bags and accessories. At first, the idea was to offer handbags seen in Julien Fournié Haute Couture shows and reserved, until then, for Haute Couture clients.
Since then, Julien Fournié has created new models ranging from evening clutches to tote bags and handbags.
These high-end bags are made in the purest respect of artisanal traditions.
For the moment, these luxury bags are exclusively available on the online boutique of the House.
Environmental responsibility and Haute Couture
Maison Julien Fournié is particularly attentive to ensuring that its development is carried out in an environmentally friendly manner.
Maison Julien Fournié has tried to minimize the environmental impact of its production over the last seasons. It has established a tracability program of the materials (fabrics, leather, embroidery…) used in order to guarantee the origin and the conditions of production.
