Born and raised in Paris, Joseph Altuzarra has been keenly interested in the transformative power of fashion since a young age. His multicultural upbringing and avid interest in different facets of culture, ranging from film, literature to crafts are key influences throughout his collections. Altuzarra is built upon the guideposts of sensuality, folkloric inspiration and Joseph’s Gallic heritage. Its collections address a global woman who is at once sexy, seductive and confident. In 2014, Joseph was named by the Council of Fashion Designers America as the Womenswear Designer of the Year.
