Victor Weinsanto debuted his first collection, and cemented the status of his eponymous label at Paris Fashion Week in 2020. After growing up studying ballet at John Cranko Schule in Germany, Weinsanto studied fashion at Atelier Chardon Savard School in Paris after realizing his love of fashion. The young designer went on to work for notable French brands Y/project and Chloé, as well as working with personal inspiration and look-alike Jean Paul Gaultier. Weinsanto’s background in ballet, and his affinity for Gaultier’s work, visibly influence his couture collections, which all bring a sense of performance. Off-kilter and sculptural constructions invoke dramatic versions of the bodies that wear the garments often expressing the designer's sense of the friends and peers he chooses to model them. While the designer's aesthetic universe remains personal and striking, his ready-to-wear collections channel his idiosyncratic vision into approachable and functional womenswear and accessories. Abstract patterns, asymmetrical cuts , and pronounced silhouettes bring a sense of playfulness to collections of elevated basics such as bomber jackets, denim, and form fitting dresses that encourage the wearer to embrace the individual way they move through space.
