Martin Grant is renowned for simple silhouettes that respect the purity of the line and reflect his refined understanding of structure and volume. Each garment is expertly crafted to highlight his viewpoint that the body is a sculptural form. Grant was born in Melbourne, Australia and launched his first ready-to-wear collection at the age of 16. The fashion prodigy's talent was immediately recognized by the Australian fashion industry and he was named Cointreau Young Designer of the Year. After studying sculpture at the Victorian College of the Arts, Grant established his studio in Paris and produced his first runway show there. In 2004, the Federation Française de la Couture du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers invited Martin Grant to show on its official calendar. The fashion house's clients and muses include HH Sheikha Moza, Queen Rania of Jordan, Cate Blanchett, Juliette Binoche, Tilda Swinton, and Emma Stone.
