Haider Ackermann

Bogota-born French designer Haider Ackermann is one of a dwindling class of master tailors, although his fluency in traditional technique belies a thoroughly updated idea of women's dress. After releasing his first eponymous collection in 2002, Ackermann gained buzz for the high quality of his draped and gathered detailing, although a recently-completed stint at LVMH menswear label Berluti has expanded Ackermann's retinue into a sharp genus of tailoring well-suited to modern power dressing.
