Biographie

Yannick TOUSSAINT avoue qu’il a toujours crayonné : enfant déjà, il s’amuse à créer des tenues pour les poupées de sa sœur tout en dessinant croquis et silhouettes.

À quinze ans, il intègre une école de couture. Pendant quatre ans il se forme au métier de styliste-modéliste et effectue un stage chez Christian Dior, puis fréquente brièvement les « Arts Appliqués ».

Il est assistant-styliste dans un atelier de couture lorsqu’il décide d’explorer les différentes professions du commerce de prêt-à-porter. Durant toutes ces années, il continue sa formation, apprend la photographie et offre à sa sensibilité suffisamment de temps pour se parfaire.

Aujourd’hui, Yannick TOUSSAINT est styliste, dessinateur et photographe.

Yannick TOUSSAINT recognizes that he had always been drawing : in his early teens he enjoyed creating clothes for his sister’s dolls while sketching pictures and silhouettes.

At age fifteen, he joined a designer school. For four years he was trained as a fashion designer and completed an internship at Christian Dior, then he briefly attended the « Applied Arts » school.

He worked as an assistant designer in a tailoring workshop when he decided to explore different occupations in the prêt-à-porter business. Throughout the years, he continued to further his education, learned about photography and offered enough time to his sensitivity to develop his skills.

Today, Yannick Toussaint is a stylist, designer, and photographer.
