Alexis Mabille is a French fashion designer who is the creative director of his namesake label, Alexis Mabille.
After his training at Nina Ricci and Ungaro, Mabille moved to Dior where then-creative director John Galliano noticed his talent and appointed him to design the 1997 accessories collection for the house. It was a major success, and he collaborated on the men’s jewelry collection with Hedi Slimane, who would later go on to head Dior Homme. He would continue his service at Dior while collaborating with such celebrated fashion houses as Yves Saint Laurent and Lancôme. In 2005, he launched his namesake label, his designs at that time were unisex. He decided to use the bowtie as a logo, as well as a common denominator of menswear and womenswear. He wanted to reinvent the bowties that were seen in France as old-fashioned, and only won by the girls in the countryside. His collections for Ready to Wear were lauded across the fashion world, with such people as Karl Lagerfeld and Mick Jagger praising his bowtie collections. In 2008, Alexis Mabille showed at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week for the first time.
