Born in the South of France in 1979, 24-year old David Kurtis was trained at the ‘Le Studio Bercot’ where he was recruited right after graduation to work for Chanel haute couture atelier.
After gaining experience from the venerable Paris fashion house, he moved to another famous design house, Christian Lacroix.
Wanting to gain new experiences and expand his horizon, he left Christian Lacroix to work with Laurent Mercier to create costumes for a video for the rock band ‘Blur’ and then started being a fashion director at ‘Up Street Magazine.’
But David cannot stop his creative energy. Wanting some fresh energy for a new ‘cocktail for men’ he launched his own label proposing some basic clothing with a little bit of haute couture and a zest for glam. At the Dinard Festival, he won the ‘Francois Lesage’ Award in 2004 with his entries for menswear.
David Kurtis is part of the new generation of designer who wants to express their positive energies and is optimistic about the future.
His signature label is about basic clothing with a little bit of haute couture.
