Adrien Sauvage – Designer. Director. Photographer.

Written by Shirlene Brown | January 8, 2014 | Leave a Comment

Adrien Sauvage is a creative talent.  He loves design, he loves photography, and he is a director.  This multi-pronged creative talent also played basketball professionally for Great Britain (a sport he started playing professionally at the age of 13).

After retiring at the age of 19 he turned his sights to celebrity stylist and lifestyle consultant. His keen eye for fashion quickly gained him a very high-profile following.  He decided to create his own line to provide more ‘wearable’ clothing, fashion that easily translated from the catwalk to everyday life.  Dress Easy (D.E.) came to fruition and, with no formal training, he started designing. In 201 he established his fashion house, A. Sauvage, designing menswear with an emphasis on perfect cuts and casual elegance.  This expanded to include women’s wear.
