Valentine Gauthier

Marrying fashion aesthetic with ethical ethos is not the challenge it once was. And now that the French have begun to combine the two in their ready-to-wear collections, it’s a sure sign that fashion has evolved to a more positive place. Hailing from Marseille and now based in Paris, Valentine Gauthier creates original women’s ready-to-wear collections that are both ethical and environmentally friendly. Working with only biodegradable fabrics (and using leather only from cows that have lived long and happy lives), Valentine’s designs fuse femininity and sharp tailoring.
