Hedi Slimane Tortella was born and raised in central Paris, France. Young Hedi was often found in a darkroom exposing his photos, making clothes for his friends, or loitering around Le Monde’s headquarters. He is a soft-spoken, lanky man who does not engage in snobbery or indulgence, unlike his creative counterparts. Hedi once stated,” I don’t talk about this much, but I was an intern at Martin Margiela when I was a kid, at almost the beginning of the house. And for me he was the original one. For me, he invented integrity.” After this internship ended, he worked on a centenary project for Louis Vuitton, which illustrated great creative prowess and got the attention of Pierre Bergé. He appointed Slimane as ready-to-wear director of menswear for Yves Saint Laurent in 1996. He later became artistic director, and his Autumn / Winter 2000 collection “Black Tie” was the first public unveiling of Hedi’s strictly slender vision. The first time in menswear history that slim dinner suits were desirable to both men and women, which has later been described as “modernist grunge.”
