Pierre Garroudi was born in Teheran, Iran, in 1959. He studied in Paris, while working as a hairdresser in his spare time and moved to New York in 1986. There he joined the Fashion Institute of Technology and graduated in 1987.
After working at various retail and design houses, Garroudi started his own label in 1993.
In his boutique in Soho in New York, you can walk in, get yourself measured and pick up a designer dress 24 hours later.
Garroudi showed his Spring 2002 collection in Paris, where he was pictured in a boxer's outfit draped in the American flag. His creations can just knock you off your feet, and that is what he wanted to convey.
His designs have turned out to be witty and provocative, and very creative.
