Haider Ackermann isn’t gunning for a big red-carpet moment to rocket his career. In fact, when he had his first one with Tilda Swinton, he went on vacation as planned.
Unswerving as that may have been, the Colombian-born designer is not about to compromise his individualism or cash in on the celebrity quota. During a Q&A with WWD’s executive editor Bridget Foley, Ackermann discussed his artistic approach to fashion. While the Antwerp Fashion Academy of Fine Arts grad has not ruled out developing a secondary label, and does like the idea of designing jewelry, he explained why he remains focused on developing his signature style, and how time is the greatest luxury.
