Hedi Slimane, born in Paris, France, in 1968, said in an interview that he wanted to be a journalist from a young age. Though I read a political preparatory school (he majored in political science and art history at Le Louvre Museum college in Paris), he later found himself not a journalist.
He had never been trained in professional clothing design, and was more than 20 years old when he was recommended to a clothing company as an apprentice by a friend. In 1996, Hedi Slimane joined YSL for the first time. The design master Yves Saint Laurent can be regarded as his noble. After discovering his design talent, Yves Saint Laurent and his long-term life and business partner Pierre Berge gave him systematic design training.
At the beginning of 2000, Hedi took over the work of the chief designer of Dior men’s wear. In the 7 years of Dior, he changed the loose and sluggish style of men’s wear in 90s. He added thin and thin style to his men’s dress design, and defined the aesthetic of a man in the age.
