Haider Ackermann is a Colombian-born French designer of ready-to-wear fashion. Inspired by the work of Yves Saint Laurent, he went to Belgium in 1994 and studied fashion design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. After five months of internship with John Galliano, he worked as an assistant to one of his teachers, the Belgian designer Wim Neels.
In the following years he worked for various brands, including Bernhard Willhelm and Patrick Van Ommeslaeghe before working as a designer for Mayerline. In 2003, Ackermann created his own label and presented his first women's wear collection in March 2001 during Paris fashion week.
Influenced by cultural differences, Ackermann's fashion contrasts and blends dress codes. The simple cuts of his creations are often asymmetric and sewn of different materials, resolutely modern, dynamic and urban areas, using the resources of the high and low culture, developing type clothing streetwear featuring feminine silhouettes sophisticated and refined.
His creations have been worn by Tilda Swinton, Timothée Chalamet, Penélope Cruz, Victoria Beckham, Janet Jackson and Kanye West.
