Jordan Roth: the new client of haute couture

Jordan Roth: the new client of haute couture, it’s him!

Who is Jordan Roth, haute couture’s most loyal client?

Six-time Tony Award-winning New York theater producer Jordan Roth has established himself over the years

as a visionary, both on Broadway and in the fashion world. He is passionate about haute couture and has

been seated in every front row of the latest Paris Fashion Week shows. He sees fashion as a way of asserting

himself: it’s a daily opportunity to give his body the chance to move in a unique way in different clothes,

the same clothes that, for him, “don’t cover us, but discover us”. It is therefore not uncommon to see

Jordan Roth dressed in sublime couture gowns. Some even see him as a new fashion icon for the LGBTQ+ community,

to which he is very close (he supports several organizations working for the equality of queer people).

During Fashion Week, his jumpsuit paired with a long moiré cape that he wore to the Alexandre Vauthier

show, and the incredible mermaid dress signed Alaïa that he twirled the time of a snapshot on Instagram

did not go unnoticed. But for him, wearing clothes initially reserved for women is not an act of activism,

only the extension of himself. Jordan Roth confided in Vogue France during his crazy week at Paris Fashion

Week haute couture, about his style, his relationship with theatricality and the shows that have particularly

marked him.

  3. What’s so exciting about haute couture compared to ready-to-wear?

Jordan Roth. “To me, haute couture is the most beautiful art form. An artistic expression as pure as a painter on a

canvas or a sculptor on a stone. The artist/designer strives to create a collection that is an expression of ideas,

of the world, of himself, of what he sees or wishes to see. And this collection comes to life through the unique talent

of the artisans in the workshops whose handiwork is the foundation of the couture. As with any great art form, couture

is a singular artistic vision manifested through the greatest talent and skill. New Balance 373 Trainers On the way to the Viktor & Rolf fashion show!

Do you remember the first fashion show you attended?

I think my first couture show was Givenchy by Clare Weight Keller, who went on to design my first look

for the Met Gala, as well as several outfits for the Tony Awards. She has become a dear friend. taltmatabannike Surrounded by Julia Fox and Miss Fame at Alexandre Vauthier

Clothes don’t cover us, they uncover us.

Do you consider yourself a visionary in fashion?

Visionary is a big word, but I certainly have a vision, for myself, that I continue to manifest and evolve. With Inez and Vinoodh backstage at the Ronald van der Kemp show

Stephane Feugere

Precisely, how would you describe your style and its evolution?

It is an expression of who I am, both outwardly for you and inwardly for myself. It is a daily opportunity

to live fully within myself and to give my body the possibility to move in a unique way in different clothes.

Do you think there is a link between theater and haute couture?

Yes, I do. Haute couture shows are beautifully theatrical, and we are all part of the performance, from the crowds

and photographers on the street, to the guests on the catwalk, to the models and all the artisans. And then the

clothes themselves are theatrical occasions. When I wear a couture piece, I act it out. The way it calls my body

to move, the way I express myself through it… It’s all about performance and self-expression.

What do you think of the theatricality in the fashion shows this season?

It reached new heights with John Galliano’s dazzling live cinematic performance at Margiela and Viktor

and Rolf’s performance art, which put themselves on stage and made us literally and figuratively reconsider

what we had just seen.

Who are your favorite haute couture designers?

I would say Alexander McQueen and John Galliano at Dior, who are among the iconic designers.

Which shows and pieces did you particularly love this season?

I loved Margiela and Viktor & Rolf, both for the clothes (I’ll think of Margiela’s green doctor’s scrubs

and blood red ones for a long time) and for the fascinating way they presented them. I also loved the Schiaparelli

show as well as the exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, which gave such an amazing context to the

work and intelligence of Elsa Schiaparelli and Daniel Roseberry. And of course, Yuima Nakazato, because I

had the unique opportunity to experience this beautiful and mystical collection from the inside, walking

the runway.

What are the most precious pieces you have in your collection?

I cherish them all because they all carry unique experiences, whether it’s the process of creation or what

they offer me when I wear them.”
