Haider Ackermann is a Colombian fashion designer known for his own namesake label, which showcases bohemian style. However, before launching his own label in 2001, Ackermann studied fashion design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. The simple cuts of his creations are often asymmetric and sewn of different materials, resolutely modern, dynamic and urban areas, using the resources of the high and low culture, developing type clothing streetwear featuring feminine silhouettes sophisticated and refined.
Having spent much of his childhood in different countries like France, Ethiopia, Algeria and Chad; Ackermann’s designs reflect the various cultures he’s come across. His creations are modern with refined and sophisticated silhouettes which are delicately draped. He has often experimented with different cuts when designing his clothing line.
