LLOYD KLEIN 2002

more who?who>>>

Lloyd Klein (www.lloydklein.com)started his career as a student of architecture. However, having attended a Givenchy runway show of Haute Couture in his twenties, he began a self-study of the great fashion artists of Europe and the United States. His interest focused on the work of such masters as Monsieur Yves St. Laurent, Jacques Fath, and the timeliness of American designer Halston.
His fascination became an obsession, and in 1994, he presented his first Lloyd Klein Spring Summer collection on the elegant stage of the Opera Comique in Paris where he was appointed Director of Costume that same year. The following season, he stunned the French fashion community by his unexpected appointment as Head Designer for the exclusive Maison Mme. Grés. His combination of intricate "Grêco" fabric draping and sublime choice of materials, continued the intrinsic Mme. Grés signature tradition. According to the French fashion press, he was one of the few designers at the time, to truly master this difficult and precise draping and cutting technique.
After his five-season tenure at Grés he terminated his contract to continue his signature House of Couture. His collections have been presented in London, Milan, Russia and Asia.
In 1998, Lloyd Klein set up new company headquarters in the United States and in Sept. of 1999 he presented his Spring Summer collection with New York's "7th on Sixth" Fashion Week in the tents at Bryant Park. Ultimo, Tootsies, Martha's and Red Velvet opened their doors. The following season, the designer was selected as a finalist for the Rising Star Award for NY's Fashion Group International.
Lloyd Klein recently presented his first menswear collection for his fourth consecutive season press show during New York's Fashion Week.
The House has plans to open its first US boutique in the Summer of 2003.
