GAUCHERE is a French prêt-à-porter house founded in 2013 by the designer Marie-Christine Statz. Her vision is to create garments that point out the individual. At the heart of GAUCHERE is the art of tailoring, the appreciation of materials as they are and the translation in pure geometric structures and sculptural volumes. Marie-Christine’s intuitive designs are expressing the mood of today while aiming for permanence and timelessness.
The GAUCHERE community is progressive. It is an active participant in today’s society. “Live and let live” is not just a phrase for them but an attitude towards life.
Prior to creating GAUCHERE, the German-born designer first studied economics before receiving an education in fashion design at New York’s Parsons School of Design. She held design roles at Narciso Rodriguez and Diane Von Furstenberg.
In 2010, she moved to Paris to receive a special qualification in Haute Couture at the École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Marie-Christine showed her first collection GAUCHERE Spring/Summer 2013 along with the official launch of the brand during Paris fashion week. In 2014 and 2015 she was among the finalists of the ANDAM award.
The collection is manufactured in Paris under the highest standards of traditional techniques and craftsmanship. The commitment to the environment is applied to the entire production reality and this is a continuous work at GAUCHERE. Our suppliers ensure full product traceability from the origin of raw materials, as well as the most advanced technologies, organizational and management processes, with full respect for people and environment.
