a single skirt to start it all
At the age of 8 Simon Porte Jacquemus got inspired by Jean-Paul Gaultier's TV perfomance and used a lace curtain to create a skirt for his mother.
Valerie Jacquemus did not scold her son for damaging her curtains. Instead she put on the skirt to take him to school next day and proudly showed it to everyone.
After finishing school Simon went в ESMOD – a French private school of fashion located in Paris.
