Haute couture holds a central place in the world of fashion, with unique, precious creations, requiring hundreds of hours of work.

This young designer passionate about fashion from an early age, he deepens his knowledge of the fashion industry alongside designers who are already well established in the field. He is notably awarded for his creation the Kombisarr’ during the competition “Mes Tissages Urbains” taking place at the Mairie of the 10th arrondissement of Paris.
His artistic and creative journey since 2010 is very rich in different experiences in the fashion industry and the project for creating his brand is coming true.
We attended the show during Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris and we loved the collection that was presented. The collection is chic, elegant, exceptional and multicultural. The couture is studied to highlight the sculptural silhouette of women with a touch of originality. In the purest “Haute Couture” tradition and luxury ready-to-wear, designer Enzo Malone is for all those looking for elegance and exception. The designer seeks his inspiration in different cultures of the world, from Asia to Africa via the West… it mixes noble and natural materials, silk, satin, taffeta, organza, but also feathers, embroidery, pearls, copper, gold and silver threads, crystal… everything to sublimate the woman. Enzo Malone, also a specialist in “tailor-made”, he knows how to seduce an international clientele by the choice of materials, glamour, softness and the spirit of detail.
We are delighted to be able to discover this talented designer and we will certainly hear about him in the future.

Sustainability, questions of gender and self-esteem are some of the values that Pauline holds dear and which also inspire her collections. The brand offers unisex collections, “progressive, wearable and fun”. Her idea was to merge “men’s fashion” and “women’s fashion” and offer beautiful pieces for a person and not for a gender. “Alter does not exist to define itself by gender but transcends individuality. A responsible brand, Alter’s sensibilities celebrate respect, tolerance, freedom of expression and love…” reads in the brand description.
The other value that Pauline integrates into her collections and with which she evolves as a person by defending it in her everyday life is awareness of environmental issues.
