LONDON — Bruce Oldfield has been creating dresses for royals, actresses and the international rich for nearly four decades, but nothing makes him wince like the words “couturier” or “fashion designer.”
“I hate that word ‘couturier.’ I would rather be known as a dressmaker, or a dress designer. I don’t want to be a fashion designer because I don’t do fashion. We leave that to other people,” said Oldfield, 63, from his small atelier on Beauchamp Place, where he’s had a shop since 1984.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
