Enamored of couture from an early age, Mabille enrolled in the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. He graduated in 1997 and quickly gained a private clientele. Having earned his stripes at Christian Dior, he went on to collaborate with celebrated French houses such as Yves Saint Laurent and Lancôme while he developed his own brand. Alexis Mabille launched his house in 2005 when, with the help of his family, he created his first signature collection. The idea of rendering everyone beautiful soon evolved into separate men’s and women’s ready-to-wear lines, accessories, underwear and, starting in 2010, Couture.
