Born in Belgium, Cedric Charlier graduated from the school of Visual Arts of Brussels.
Cedric Charlier won the Moet Hennessy Fashion Award in 1998 and subsequently worked at the
House of Celine in Paris for two years under the creative direction of Michael Kors.
He then joined Jean Paul Knott’s studio for two other years.
Afterwards he joined Alber Elbaz’s team at Lanvin where he spent six years. He caught
the attention of Jean Bousquet, who in 2009 commissioned Cedric Charlier to create a new
dynamic positioning for Cacharel.
Cedric worked four seasons as artistic director before he set up his own brand. He has
shown his first eponymous collection in February 2012, in Paris. The new collection got
immediate attention from both international press and buyers.
