Gaspard Yurkievich was born in Argentina in the late 1960's. He moved to Paris, France and studied at the Bercot Studio, there, graduating in 1993.
During the early 1990's he worked for Thierry Muglier, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Jean Colonna, till 1994.
He was continually designing for fashion houses in France, and was judged the best collection in 1997 at the Festival of Arts, Huyuers.
In 1997, he started up his own label, showing his first collection in Paris in 1998.
Since then he has been considered one of the strongest fashion design talent to emerge in years.
Gaspard Yurkievich is known for his wild and outlandish catwalk presentations, French designer Gaspard Yurkievich is also fast becoming the designer of choice by fashion forward young men and women who like wearing street and urban clothes with a Parisian touch. Gaspard Yurkievich’s creations are young, youthful and energetic. He is also not scared to take chances. His Spring 2004 menswear presentation hit the headlines because it featured several young men miming every sexual position that a group of lusty men can twist themselves into. Of course, all the models were fully clothed. But the sexual connotations were not lost on the audience. Again, during the Spring 2005 menswear season, Yurkievich shocked his audience. In a most unexpected presentation, the group of urban dancers hired by Yurkievich showed how the clothes would really be worn. They danced, body-popped, scratched, vogued in a sexually explicit manner.
