He had worked side-by-side with Herrera on her signature collection, as well as her bridal line, and was very much on the scene earlier this month. Raised in the Loire Valley, he studied at the Écoles de la Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture in the late Eighties. By the age of 24, Pierre led haute couture at Pierre Balmain. He later relocated to New York and joined Herrera’s company in 1992.
