Alistair Blair was born in 1956 in Helensburgh, UK.
He started his career in Paris in 1983 when he trained with Marc Bohan at Dior, then assisted Hubert de Givenchy, after which he assisted Karl Lagerfeld at Chloe.
After six years in Paris, his ready-to-wear had taken on the quality and glamour of continental couture. Blair presented the first collection on his own label in March 1989. He provided grown-up glamour during the eccentric street wear boom of the 1980s.
In the late 1990's, Blair was the designer for Louis Féraud, the famous French fashion house, where his elegant creations have been very successful with society ladies.
Alistair Blair attended the New York Rootstein party in May 2002, where many supermodels were present such as Erin O'Connor, Karen Elson, Maggie Rizer, etc. He is often seen about town.
Alistair was designer for several years at the house of Laura Ashley, but left them in late 2004.
His use of luxurious fabrics such as cashmere, duchesse satin, grey flannel and kid leather brought a nostalgic quality to his carefully edited designs.
