JOSEPH ALTUZARRA

Joseph Altuzarra born and raised in Paris, France.  He move to USA to study at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania.  He had a six-month internship at Marc Jacobs, a freelance design assistant for Proenza Schouler, and former assistant to New York’s premier modéliste Nicolas Caito.  Altuzarra returned to Paris to work at Givenchy, though he struggled with his lack of formal training because all of the other people had gone to fashion school and he hadn’t. At Givenchy, Altuzarra met Coline Choay, who left Givenchy as the international public relations manager to help him launch his own business back in New York. The Fall collection features Altuzarra’s signature complex seaming and immaculately fitted pants, and has generated a buzz that’s got “overnight sensation”.  Where can you find his collection  in NY Barney “s, Jeffrey, Kirna Zabete and Open Ceremony.
